Magic Teacher's Son: Book One of the Magicians' Gold Series by David Harten Watson is an epic young adult fantasy that would appeal most to a mixed audience of teens and preteens who enjoy magic-filled stories and do not mind some mild violence and limited mild swear words. Pran is the sixteen-year-old son and student of Master Gilamond. One might think that as the teacher's son he would have it easy, but one decision to sneak out at night with a friend to a circle of sorcery leads to him being thought of as the class snitch. Does young Pran have what it takes to clear his name while also fulfilling a prophecy and saving his kingdom?
Move over Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and make room for Pran in Magic Teacher's Son by David Harten Watson! This book might be intended for young adults, but as an adult I found it to be a very enjoyable read. I liked the distinction between magicians and sorcerers as normally fantasy books use the two words interchangeably, but this author made them into two different groups. The premise of the book reminded me a bit of the Harry Potter and Lightning Thief book series, yet I found this author’s take on magic to be much more imaginative with the different types of magic and the numerous different settings the characters visit during the attempted prophecy fulfillment. I greatly enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to getting the chance to read the rest of the series.
