The Magic Kingdom is a work of epic and fantasy literature by K. Stan Tinos. In addition to a wooden box filled with odd artifacts, Ronnie's mother left her a message stating that if she were to become the ruler of the kingdom of Bennington, all of her dreams would come true. Ronnie needed a purpose in life, something to hold onto, something that would make her feel hopeful and adventurous, but most of all, she needed to feel like she belonged. Two rabbit-eared baboons, or at least two animals that resembled them, and a cat made up Ronnie's staff while the kingdom lay in ruins. Ronnie had to give up everything she had to take on the role of the queen of a dying land and duties that no one else wanted to perform.

I was drawn into a magical realm of willpower, evil, corruption, and manipulation in The Magic Kingdom. This story was action-packed and fast-paced, with a lot going on. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat throughout this page-turner. The writing style was out of this world, and it was easy to visualize the characters and the surroundings. The characters in K. Stan Tino's complex story of a magical realm were put to the test and beyond their limitations. Strago, the court wizard, was my favorite character; he was humorous, and his magic did not always work as planned. With attention to detail and an engaging plot, the story was masterfully written. I was captivated immediately and kept wondering until the very end.
