„Avis Blackthorn and the Ring of Enchantment“ is the prequel of the Avis Adventure #series, written by Jack Simmonds. It plays six weeks before Avis starts Hailing Hall School for Wizards. The Cover: It is an interesting drawing with Avis, the #rabbit and the #pig and is also #funny and suitable for the readers. The Plot: The 12-year old Avis Blackthorn is the only good #wizard in a family which consists only of evil wizards who are serving Malakai, the most evil wizard of all time. The #magical kingdom is in another dimension than the Outside (where all normal, non-magical people live). The Blackthorns live in the Darkhampton Manor, a #castle where darkness always resides, even though the castle lays in the sunniest kingdom of all. Nothing grows there and it’s no fun for Avis because he is bullied by his nine older siblings, for example Marianne and Gertrude change him into a mouse. Besides of that, Avis is a bitter disappointment for his parents because Avis is so good. And his name also leads to that he has no friends and no foe, and therefore he is the #loner of the family. And not even the Butler Kilkenny from Ireland likes Avis. One day, his parents are on their way to poison a princess and Avis gets a warning that if he doesn’t „cause any damage around the castle, there will be severe punishment around the castle.“ Of course, Butler Kilkenny wants that Avis does all the housework because Kilkenny is lazy and Avis has no chance to defend because Kilkenny would starve him otherwise and Avis only went to theoretical magical training. So Avis is really anxious and excited to go to the magical school and he also can’t wait to use his #chancellor (you can’t do real magic without one). And the chancellor his family have, is an exceptional one: the Ring of Enchantment, the most prized possession in the magical world. With the Ring of Enchantment you can make things alive and what would be better than turning his plush pet, Sedrik, his only and best friend, into a real rabbit? 4-Stars!l 251 more words.
