can be a lethal combination...
In this fun, thrilling MG/Tween fantasy, 13-year-old Chase Tinker and his brother Andy find out the truth about their family’s magical heritage from a grandfather they thought to be long dead. He invites them to visit him in his magical house – a house where every room has its own unique super-power. When there, they learn their family’s magic comes from a mysterious "Relic" and that they have a Dark Enemy who will do anything to get their hands on this Relic. Now Chase must discover a way to stop these evil beings, find his missing dad, and unravel even more family secrets, while not letting on that he has his own secret crush on the housekeeper's daughter.
"This is a phenomenal book for middle grade readers, who can very easily project themselves into this adventure. In the grand old tradition of Harry Potter and Star Wars, I hope we hear a lot more about Chase Tinker, as well as the author, in the future."

"I see this as the kind of novel that both boys and girls will embrace, which is rare for children's literature. It's well-written, professionally edited, and tightly plotted. I recommend it highly." Amazon Top Reviewer
There’s plenty of action and mystery, and let’s not forget the magical house that is just built out of plain awesomeness. RallytheReaders
For eight agonizing months Chase Tinker's guilt for the despicable act he committed on Halloween night has been eating away at him, practically destroying his heart and mind. Chase's life gets even more complicated when secrets about the mysterious Relic in the attic are revealed right before an unexpected visitor arrives on Chase's 14th birthday. But even with this, his biggest concern is that his family's Dark Enemy the Marlowes are becoming more powerful with each passing day from the magic they're continuing to pillage from the many magical beings in the world. Now, if they are ever going to win, Chase's family will need a whole lot of magical help to finally destroy the most evil villains to ever exist.
After spending the summer at his grandfather's incredibly magical house, 13-year-old ChaseTinker thought things couldn't get any more bizarre, or that the secrets and lies couldn't get any worse, but he was wrong.
As summer turns into Autumn, join Chase and his family for even more magical craziness. Craziness that will include: the sneezing of strange powers, the reappearance of the evil Marlowe family, another frightening kidnapping, the discovery of a mysterious, magical Japanese-American girl, a dangerous rescue mission, and a secret so mind-boggling, it will lead to a shocking climatic finish that will turn Chase's world upside down and leave him feeling like one of the worst people on the planet.

I totally recommend the CHASE TINKER series – start with HOUSE OF MAGIC and you won’t be able to stop until you’ve finished HOUSE OF DESTINY. And even then you’ll be wanting more...

The Crooked Word
This sequel, to the excellent Chase Tinker and the House of Magic, has not just continued the story, it has also increased my interest, introduced new characters, given plot and character twists that would make a mystery crime writer envious AND made me frantic for the next book.
