Description

In the latest rollicking adventure in the Magic 2.0 series, it’s time for the teenagers to show the adults how wizardry really works.

Mattie and Brewster are normal, typical 16-year-old twins who live with their normal, boring parents: Martin and Gwen Banks. Normal and boring, that is, until the day their father's best friend shows up at their house - dressed in what appears to be a bathrobe. 

The next thing Mattie and Brewster know, their parents are frozen like human statues in their living room, the guy in the bathrobe has vanished, and they need to find answers - fast.   

The twins set off on a quest to discover the truth of their parents' lives. Along the way they find secrets, lies, magic, time travel, strange new friends, stranger new enemies, and a really weird dirigible (which, they're told repeatedly, is not a blimp). It is a twisted and bizarre trail that, they hope, will lead them to the man they blame for their parents' peril: 

Phillip.

WOW!

I. Couldn't. Stop. Listening! It was what you would expect, from the view point of 2 new characters on the seen.

Meyer brings the series back from the edge

Man am I glad I enjoyed this book. I love the series and this book was make or break for me. This is not the best in the series, but I laughed and was entertained the entire time. Meyer quickly addresses the time travel issue that was getting cumbersome and drops the deep morale dilemmas that weighed down the last 2 books, The funniest part was when Meyer toyed with some near 4th wall breaks with nods to the critiques of the 4th book in the series and addressing politics in today's charged climate. While a fun read, fans of the series should be ready for a slightly different feel. The characters we know take a back seat to the twins for the majority of story, but is familiar enough (especially the last few chapters) for fans of the series to feel comfortable.
My only critique of the book is it borrows heavily from the plot of the book 1, just swapping out the protagonist and villain. This book feels like a palette cleanser for author and audience. Meyer seems to purposely not take any chances in this book and fall back to something he knows is going to work, so I had to give the story a 4 out of 5, but if Meyer needed a bit of a crutch to get this series back on track, I'll gladly take it.

I was skeptical but ended up loving it

I preordered the book as a big Magic 2.0 fan but started to get skeptical about the premise of the book focusing on Gwen and Marin’s children. I’ve fallen in love with the original characters and was prepared to be a bit disappointed. I was really happy to have it end up being a great addition of two new characters to the overall cast. Scott Meyer has masterfully grown the Magic 2.0 universe and allowed a new view into the world.

not bad

definitely not the best book in the series, which is an amazing series, but not bad. My only complaint is that all of the men are so universally stupid and all of the women are so smug and superior, it's a real trope. I wish that the characters could just act like real people sometimes. And I wish everyone would stop being so mean to Martin. The women in this book act completely insane and irrational too much of the time, and all of the men are written like giant buffoons to make up for it, to justify their behavior. no group of people really actually behaves this way. Just write real people, men and women.

For Big Magic 2.0 fans only

Overall I enjoyed it enough, mainly because I really enjoyed some of the other books, but I felt this story is getting a little stale. The villains don’t really make sense, too many repeats of plot, and I really missed out on watching more growth in the relationship of Martin and Philip. If you like Scott Meyer humor, it’s worth a read. but if you thought any of the prior books weren’t for you, maybe skip this one.

SPOILER ALERT MAYBE

I loved it (of course) but unlike the past few books, the ending doesn't have a hint for the plot of the next book. There better be a NEXT book

Just one line...

"And she dumped YOU?" Mattie said to Phillip.
"Thank you...thank you.." Phillip replied, tears in his eyes.

Of course that's not entirely accurate and paraphrased. However, thank GOD Meyer included that because I was thinking that the entire last book. I really liked this one. I liked how their children's magic was different and pretty much a lot about this book, although the third one still is my absolute favorite because I'm a video game fan and the bad video game design made me laugh so hard. "TREE WOLVES" LMAO

... Liked it... Good new start for the Next Gen

Love the fact that Meyer isn't holding back with his satirical mockery and judgment of current socio political issues.... I'm sure some folks will low ball the reviews in protest... Ignore the idiots...

Good fun

Another fun romp in the Magic 2.0 series. Overall I enjoyed it, though pacing got a little slow in a few places and at times it seemed Meyer felt obligated to throw in a cameo from every character in the series. It was fun to get to know Gwen and Martin's kids plus Gilbert and Sid, and Philip's speech about leadership was priceless. Luke Daniel's narration was a pleasure, as always.
