“I am a “seasoned” adult, but the child within me enjoyed Archie Greene and the Magician’s Secret with every fiber of its being. I’ve been a writer/editor (but not of books) for over 35 years, so I know a good story when I read it. You are a brilliant weaver of tales, D. D.

Yet another beautiful hardback edition from my Japanese publishers, who commissioned their own special illustrations too. I just wish I could read Japanese!
My 10 years old son has read all the books. The last one didn’t take long time and it was the best, so I was told. For how long we have to wait the next book?

A taste of Archie on the big screen … <deep, slow voice> “When the forces of destiny target a chosen few, and as the powers of darkness gather together, it is the ancient art of alchemy that is the only way to save the world’s magic.
