Like most normal people, Ben hadn't the faintest idea there was an Institute of Magic... Two years after his parents' sudden disappearance, Ben Greenwood stumbles upon a cryptic letter that could shed some light on their whereabouts. But before he can track them down, he'll need to find the mysterious organization that sent the letter: The Royal Institute of Magic. To succeed, Ben will have to navigate a land filled with fantastic creatures and Spellshooters, where magic can be bought and sold, to unravel an ancient family secret that could hold the key to defeating an evil the Institute has been fighting for the last five hundred years. Elizabeth's Legacy is the first book in the Royal Institute of Magic series.… (més)

Ben's parents are dead and he spends his time between boarding school and living with a neglectful family member. Until he finds a letter from the Royal Institute of Magic saying his parents are alive, but in hiding after being falsely accused of murdering an Elf royal. Along with his friends Ben seeks out and finds the RIM, only to find out not everyone there believes in his parents' innocence and that not everyone is his friend.

Definitely a cute magical school, plenty of wonderful, magical things and beings, with a touch of danger to keep it interesting, and enough history to make me curious about the future.

The next Harry Potter.

This book is not a Harry Potter clone. It's not a HP imitation.

This book is like HP in that it is filled with magic, a wonderfully creative story, well written so you see the world as you read, and strong, unique characters. It's a great book, a joy to read, and pulls you into the story until you don't want to come up for air. ( )

I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The story opened with an intriguing scene where a baker's son had the opportunity to test to be admitted to the Royal Institute of Magic. Unfortunately, that scene was never followed up on. I'm a fan of testing scenarios, and love reading them.

The story itself starts in the modern day U.K. A boy's parents are missing, presumed dead, and he's roughing it, trying to live, get his education and solve his parents' disappearance all at the same time. The return of his parents' belongings from the police give him a clue to follow and he and a friend pursue it into a whole new world, one they never knew existed. The story is go-go-go from there on out, one chase scene after another with brief pauses for exposition.

The book was well-written. The main characters were a little too glib; the girl knew everything they needed to know about their new world, the hero's off-the-cuff plans nearly always worked and the friend knew everything about the modern world. They were too good to be true. I also felt that having his parents up for treason for murdering a man who the higher ups *know* is alive to be rather silly.

It's part one of a series. The series may improve now that the hero gets into magic school. I liked it, but there were problems with it. ( )
