Misfit’s Magic: The Last Halloween is a work of fiction in the fantasy subgenre and serves as the opening installment of the Misfit’s Magic series. It is aimed at young adult readers and was penned by author Fred Gracely. The book follows a young boy named Goff who is an outcast suddenly granted incredible magical powers. When he is thrust into a battle against a corrupt master of the magical arts who wants to hoard power for himself, Goff must overcome the difficulties of his childhood so far with the help of his new friends as they fight back against the army of monsters hunting them.
I had a wonderful time with this story which painted an intense but charming picture of magic leaking into the otherwise ordinary life of a boy living on the outside of society looking in. Author Fred Gracely’s skill as a world builder is on show right from the very beginning as he masterfully introduces the rules and norms of the magical world as it seeps into the world we know. This robust establishing of the fantasy trappings is helped in no small part by protagonist Goff whose perspective on the events of the narrative gives the whole book a fresh and accessible feel. It’s a difficult task to write a compelling opener to a series, laying the foundations for the saga that is to come whilst also telling a complete and satisfying stand-alone story, but The Last Halloween accomplishes this goal with aplomb, creating a memorable tale with plenty of room for growth in future installments.
