The Wizard of Dark Street (Oona Crate #1)

The Wizard of Dark Street  (Oona Crate #1) AudiobookThe Wizard of Dark Street (Oona Crate #1) Audiobook by Shawn Thomas Odyssey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a delightful new series with a fascinating main character named Oona Crate. Oona is a rare natural magician, but she does not want to be the apprentice to her uncle, the Wizard of Dark Street. She wants to be a detective like her father was before he was killed. It seems a pity because it is so rare to be born a natural magician, but Oona is adamant, and her uncle advertises for an apprentice in the New York Times.

The problem is that Dark Street exist between two worlds and is only open to New York at 12 midnight for exactly 1 minute. Eventually, there are 5 candidates and they are to interview for the job, however, the wizard mysteriously disappears with his clothes and a knife in his back left behind. The bumbling policeman doesn't have a clue and Oona has her first case.

There are all sorts of interesting characters in the book as imaginative as those found in Harry Potter. I look forward to more books in this series.
