The Golden Wizard (Scrolls of Zndaria, #1)

goldenwizardWritten by J. S. Jaeger

The Golden Wizard is the first book in a new series by Utah authors Jerry and Stephanie Jaeger, Scrolls of Zndaria. I read the first chapter with great hopes. Nathaniel “Nate” a fifteen year old, is being chased by bullies. It is a regular occurrence for Nate. He is the son of a woodsman, but dreams of being a wizard. Nate is saved from the bullies by an elf, Blinkly. Nate and Blinkly become friends and are chosen to go to the Halls of Magic. All kinds of interesting people, mishaps, and different colored moons show up along the way. The Golden Wizard seem to be a lot like the Harry Potter series. I was disappointed in the fact that Nate shows up at the Halls of Magic and not much is shared in his training and becoming a wizard. However, I still have high hopes for the series. I think students that like Harry Potter and fantasy will love the series.
