Shannon’s Thoughts:

Kingston and his mother moved away from Echo City when his father disappeared. Now 4 years later they have moved back to open a restaurant. Kingston wanders the town reminded of his father and how he disappeared in front of his own eyes. Kingston soon discovers that magic is real and his father disappeared for a good reason. Kingston finds out that he might be able to bring him back.

The book is pretty fast-paced and is very original. The magic rules used are very different than other books. The four elements are spoken of but they are not the elements that you would normally think of. This made the book confusing and interesting at the same time. Your expecting one thing and get another.

While I liked the different world and the magic, I feel like I needed more info and more history. How did the father and his brothers learn magic was real and when? What exactly was the reason for the father to sacrifice himself? Just so many questions but I guess that is what the next book (and others) will hopefully answer.

Kingston And The Magicians Lost And Found was enjoyable and I would like to read the sequel. Kids who enjoy magicians and fantasy magic will like this series.
