“A powerful opener to a series [that] will produce a combination of feisty protagonists and challenging circumstances to thoroughly involve not just young adults, but adult fantasy fans who seek epic stories fueled by powerful friendships and adversaries.”

From USA Today and #1 bestselling fantasy author Morgan Rice comes a new fantasy series for teens and adults.
THE MAGIC FACTORY: OLIVER BLUE AND THE SCHOOL FOR SEERS (BOOK ONE) tells the story of one very special boy, Oliver Blue, different than those around him and unloved by his hateful family. Obsessed with inventions, Oliver is determined to escape his horrible life and make his mark on the world.
When Oliver’s family moves again, to another awful house and school, he is bullied and excluded, and sees no way out. But when he stumbles across an abandoned invention factory, he wonders if this could be his way out. Who is the mysterious old inventor hiding in the factory? What is his secret invention?
And might this factory be a portal to somewhere else?

Book #2 in the series (THE ORB OF KANDRA) and Book #3 (THE OBSIDIANS) are now also available!
“The beginnings of something remarkable are there.”
--San Francisco Book Review (re A Quest of Heroes)
Amazing story of friendship, magic, time, and some history!
Starting this book, one would assume it’s extremely similar to the Harry Potter series considering the first couple chapters. Keep reading. While the introduction is fairly similar, the concept of the story goes into a different direction and even the name of the book, it makes you assume it’s a story about young wizards but it’s about an entirely different concept. There is also a real life history aspect of the story than many books avoid and decide to create an entirely new universe, Morgan Rice is able to place her story into our world and describe how the main characters interact with real events.
Such a moving adventure and story , from different times and great friendship to a destiny to follow.
Not a fan.
It is a really poorly written Harry Potter rip-off. There are grammatical and word usage mistakes, as well as repetitive descriptions. How many times can trash blowing in the wind be mentioned in the first chapters before the reader tires of it? How many times can the main character get lost in the hallways?
I can not understand how this even made it through editing.
The story is just ok; some characters are likable yet underdeveloped. Many situations that the main character finds himself in are tiresome, or just plain ridiculous. It is like the author just couldn’t come up with anything else to say.
I would pass on this one.
