The Magician's Doll, by M.L. Roble, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Having a psychic for a mother is not really something twelve year old Natalie wishes to advertise. The neighbor ruffians tease her, and close friends are few and far between. As uncomfortable as Natalie is with her mother’s unconventional behavior, it’s only natural that she would find it vexing when she begins “seeing” things herself.
Natalie’s life takes an interesting turn when Phillip, the shy neighbor boy, starts hanging around. When they find themselves at a magician’s performance at the circus, Natalie and Phillip get the opportunity to go on stage to assist the magician in his show. Natalie meets the magician’s doll and is drawn into a powerful world of magic and mystery. She quickly learns that she has abilities she never imagined were possible. Natalie resists her special powers, but Phillip wants to put them to use for their benefit and he pushes her to experiment and try new ways to exploit her gifts.
Author, M.L. Roble has created a well written and suspenseful mystery in The Magician’s Doll. This unique story-line captures the reader, as well-developed characters become embroiled in a battle between good and evil. Lots of unique plot twists, interspersed with a bit of humor, help make this book an exciting and engaging read. Subtle references to life messages that teach positive values to young readers are an added bonus to this book which comes highly recommended.
