Beginning in the land of humans, Roxanne and Emily cross paths with a mischievous fairy named Sonjoni. He shows Roxanne the truth of her father, the famed wizard Merlin. Roxanne becomes the accidental bearer of Merlin’s Shadow, the celestial pathway between Earth and Tir Nan Og, into which Emily and Roxanne are suddenly swept.
His mom can die and bring herself back to life. His dad can heal people that would normally be considered beyond saving. His sister can make people do anything she wants. But Jack, the main character in The Greatest Magician by Elena Paige, isn’t like the rest of his family. He can’t even perform a basic card trick. Jack isn’t really sure if his wish is to be a magician or not: he feels left out without a special power amongst a family of mages, but he knows that he will never be a mage, so he wonders if he should even bother trying.
