Jinx's Magic is the sequel to Jinx: The Wizard's Apprentice. It's about a young magician called Jinx. He is apprentice to Simon, a powerful magician.
In this volume, there is an evil magician called The Bonemaster. He was imprisoned, but the enchantments on his cell are starting to break. Simon sets off to find some other wizards to help him to strengthen the enchantments. Meanwhile, Jinx and his friends Reven and Elfwyn go off to reclaim a kingdom of which Reven's the rightful king. But a curse has been put on Elfwyn and Reven which means Reven can't say he's the heir to the kingdom and Elfwyn can't tell lies. When things start to go wrong, Jinx is sent to learn more powerful magic, but will be strong enough to help this friends.
My favourite part of the story was when Jinx learned how to do KnIP (which means Knowledge is Power). This was really exciting because Jinx makes a portal back to the Urwald, the land where he lives.
The best character was the Preceptress. She was in charge of the university in the city of Samara, where Jinx goes to study. I liked her because she was a really great bad guy and knew very powerful magic!
I hate starting a series part way through, but the author did a good job of filling me in with the story so far. I'm going to read the first book in the series very soon. I'd recommend this to fans of anything magical!
