The Wizard of Dark Street, by Shawn Thomas Odyssey
Dark Street is a place of magic, hidden from most of New York’s residents, where Oona Crate dreams of becoming a detective. But with her natural ability with magic, she has been training as a Wizard’s apprentice to her uncle. After a tragic magical accident killed her family, Oona wants nothing to do with magic. But when her uncle is attacked, Oona must use both her skills at detection and magic to uncover the plot behind the Wizard’s assault.
Oona Crate is a smart, resourceful, and sympathetic character. Meanwhile, the police inspectors are brainless and frustrating. Odyssey’s Dark Street is a dark and mysterious place with witches, goblins, fairies, and other magical creatures.
A clever mystery based in a fantasy world, this middle grade novel is a fun and highly entertaining read for all ages. Full of adventure, suspense, humor and zany characters, this fast-paced mystery is impossible to put down. In the vein of the classic whodunit, the adventure culminates with an exciting and surprising ending. Don’t miss this excellent and amusing fantasy.
