SUBLIME BOOK REVIEW
Witty, awkward, and lovable, Monte is finally of age in the Mystic world. Then his family moves to Scotland where unrest runs high and danger lurks around every corner. And oh yeah, the use of magic is forbidden, a perfect recipe for teenage boredom. But that doesn't stop him from finding adventure.
Sturdy, athletic, and intelligent, Garrick has as much might as Monte has courage. Best friend and older brother to Monte, he is a good companion if not a little uptight. He's not sure what to think of Scotland. The enchanting country has a lot to offer, but will it be too much for him?
Smart, mysterious, and painfully quiet, Cameron keeps everyone guessing. It's quite possible she holds the information that the others are seeking but it's all about keeping her around long enough to get the answers.
Curious and hungry for adventure, Finn is a bit of a troublemaker. The ultimate sidekick, he is a loyal friend and will stick with you even when things get dire. He’s always up for some fun and still manages to get into plenty of mischief despite his Nanny’s watchful eye and her rather extreme opinions.
