This is the best book I’ve read single handedly took my breathe away. I’ve never been more interested in a book since I was in middle school. If the author reads this I want you to know you are one of the best writers of all time i will continue to read and finish this adventure. Thank You For the Book
The Magic Factory is such a fun and exciting story! Oliver seems to grow more and more relatable with every struggle he faces, at least for me. The cast of characters is awesome, as is fairly typical for Rice. The villains are so easy to hate and the good guys are so easy to cheer for. It’s just great to have some decent, straightforward, relatable stories to read now and then, and I can always count on Morgan Rice for that.
Exciting new series
Oliver Blue is a misfit bullied young boy who discovers who he really is in this series. Being a Seer added a twist along with time traveling. The kids and I loved it and can’t wait for the next book to come out.
