Maya Mysun has always been interested in magic, while her twin Jack has a penchant for science. On their thirteenth birthday, after several dire warnings from unnamed sources, their parents inexplicably disappear. Tommy, Maya’s pet tortoise, turns into a strange being who transports them to a different realm. In a parallel storyline, a streetwise teen named David is taken to a facility that seems otherworldly. How will the twins find David, fight the evil forces, and bring back their parents? Maya Mysun and the World that does not Exist by P.M. Perry is a young adult fantasy novel based on two distinct but interconnected realms - the Siantia, believing in scientific logic, and the Konjiuria, delving into sorcery.

In his book, P.M. Perry has created a whole new fantastical world full of magic tricks, wizards, wraiths, genies, and strange beasts. The trio’s epic adventures take them through numerous hurdles that rigorously test their powers. As the story progresses, they unearth a diabolical conspiracy that plunges them into fierce battles. Unlike many other fantasy stories, Perry doesn’t shun the scientific and technological advances of the modern world but instead allows them to play a prominent role in the novel. Maya Mysun and the World that does not Exist imparts moral lessons to its readers, as Maya repeatedly demonstrates the power of kindness. The trio escapes impossible situations, armed with nothing but scant magical prowess and a strong bond between them. Although the story is geared toward young adults, I would also recommend this magical tale to any adults who appreciate fantasy.
