Book Review - Magickeepers: The Eternal Hourglass by Erica Kirov

Nick is having a tough summer. His report card is awful, his dad is embarrassing, and he doesn’t have a friend in the world. On the morning of his thirteenth birthday all of this changes. Not only does Nick find out that his cousin is the world famous magician, Damien, but he has an entire family of real magicians and guest what?…Nick is the most powerful magician of them all!

Nick's not too happy when they kidnap him and force him to live on the top floor of a casino. This is not just any casino though, here tigers walk freely throughout the hallways, there is snow falling in 90 degree weather and polar bears swim in the family pool. Nick soon finds out that he is there for his own protection and must help unravel a deep, dark family secret. Nick is the only person in the world who can help solve the mystery of the missing hourglass before the evil shadowkeepers get to it or to him first, and they will stop at nothing to find it.

An excellent first book in what hopes to be a great series! Check out the prologue for book #2 at the end of the last chapter.
