Second book in the Chase Tinker series
*This was gifted to me by author for review*
In Chase Tinker's world, magic, lies and secrets can be a lethal combination...
After spending the summer at his grandfather's gigantic, incredibly magical house, thirteen-year-old Chase Tinker thought things couldn't get any more bizarre, or that the secrets and lies couldn't get any worse, but he was wrong.
As summer turns into Autumn, join Chase and his family for even more magical craziness. Craziness that will include: the sneezing of strange powers, the reappearance of the evil Marlowe family, another frightening kidnapping, the discovery of a mysterious, magical girl, a dangerous rescue mission, and a secret so mind-boggling, it will lead to a shocking climatic finish that will turn Chase's world completely upside down and leave him feeling like one of the worst people on the planet.

Yay for middle grade. This may not have been perfect but it was very good. It made a great addition to the series. 

This continues the story of Chase and Andy. Things get get crazier as fall comes. The Marlowes return. The Tinkers must band together to fight them and save their house. 

This had a fabulous set of characters. Chase is such a good leader. He is very determined. I loved seeing him learn to use his powers. Andy is really just the cutest thing. He's just along for the ride. He's also gotten pretty good at magic. This book has a lot of secondary characters. They were all fabulous. I only brought up Chase and Andy because their the main characters. 

What I loved most about this story was the magic. There was like a million different magical aspects. There was a fair bit of action but it was either in the beginning or the end. Not so much through the middle. There was lots of suspense though. The ending kinda threw me off because the whole point of the story didn't seem to matter anymore. I was a little confused. Overall this was a pretty good read. If your a magic fan, I highly recommend.
