    1. Erm this one was maybe a little less than 3 More 2.5ish.One of the best parts of the story was Oona being introduced to women s rights, and becoming aware of the disparity in her world which she hadn t really seen before.The other two main aspects of the story were a mystery, of course a theft, the solving of which has personal stakes for Oona and a Magical Test as part of her training to become the Wizard It was the last bit which I actually felt was the weakest The descriptions of the tests an [...]


    2. I remarked on my review for the Magician s Tower, book two in this series, that I didn t care for it nearly as well as the first book Oona aggravated me a bit, the antagonists aggravated me a bitI loved the plot and the setting, but the irritations sucked some of the fun out of it all And if I m going to read a middle grade book, being, you know, not a middle grade person, I want it to be fun.Happily, I can say that with The Magician s Dream, we re back to a solid four stars and a thoroughly enj [...]


    3. What I liked 1 The general idea As someone pointed out in a review of The Magician s Tower, it s kind of like Harry Potter A magic world corresponding with the real world Here, however, that world was in the 1800s, which was neat.What was meh 1 The characters I did enjoy Oona her name fits her perfectly but she and the others felt shallow And why are police characters ALWAYS idiots Really What I didn t like 1 The world building Grant it, I haven t read the other books in the series, so this is p [...]


    4. A fun read a little darker emotionally than 1 and 2, but only fractionally I was torn between 3 stars and 4 I felt the plot seemed a little forced here, perhaps because the story seems like it was headed somewhere a little deeper and yet the narrative maintains much the same tone as the first two books Nevertheless, it was fun to spend time with Oona and time on Dark Street.


    5. More Mystery Than Magic This TimeThis is the third volume in the Wizard of Dark Street series featuring Oona Crate, and it is a fine addition to the series It s hard for me to imagine a better and appealing set of middle grade fantasy adventure mystery books than these Here s why.We have a very engaging alternate world Dark City is located between our world and the world of Faerie It consists mainly of a long High Street that connects the gate to New York City, which opens once a year , and the [...]


    6. Original review at Story and Somnomancy.This book is apparently the third of the Oona Crate Mystery novels, though I don t actually believe one needed to pick the previous novels up to understand what s happening in book 3 Perhaps reading the first two books might have shed some light on certain characters, but I didn t really mind beginning where I did, so I just treated the book as a standalone.What I LovedOona She s a firecracker of a girl, and clearly talented for her age Of the characters, [...]


    7. Once again I ve stumbled into the middle of a series and have enjoyed myself so much that I m going to have to go back and read the earlier titles I missed The Magician s Dream is the third book in the Oona Crate series Oona is an apprentice wizard living on Dark Street, a mysterious, revolving realm bridging the world of man of humans, Oona would insist and the world of the faeries These are not the fluttery beauties that the word faerie often conjures These are powerful, malevolent, battle rea [...]


    8. What I liked The Magician s Dream is an interesting and fun read.The adventure and mystery will delight you and your family for hours There is constantly something going on and watching Oona as she navigates an adult world with different personalities and biases will be a learning experience for all.As a parent, one of my favorite parts of the book is Deacon He s constantly explaining events and words that Oona already seems to know but that our audience may not It s done in such a way that read [...]


    9. I really enjoy this series Having read all three, so far, this book doesn t lessen the fun by being a sequel It is just has much fun as this first book I can t wait for there to be Fingers crossed.



    10. I really loved this series I m going to pitch it to my editor because I think it deserves the full treatment Great stuff.
