Science, Magic, and Whacky Robots: Read our Review of Wednesday Weeks and the Tower of Shadows by Denis Knight & Cristy Burne

Synopsis

A seriously smart and funny new series about a reluctant sorcerer's apprentice who would rather study science than magic, which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day?

She'd rather study science than magic. But when her cloak-wearing, staff-wielding grandpa is captured by a power-hungry goblin king, Wednesday must find a way to embrace her magical heritage and rescue him from the dreaded Tower of Shadows. Luckily, she's not alone. Her best friend Alfie is a prime-number fan and robotics expert who's all-in on Wednesday's epic plan involving parallel universes, swords of power, and a wise-cracking talking skull. But it's going to take more than science, magic, and the world's cutest robot to take down this bad guy. Because the goblin king is playing for the ultimate prize - and Wednesday and Alfie just walked into his trap...

About the author

Denis Knight

Science fiction and fantasy author Denis Knight is a computer programmer who grew up geeking out about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. He has also worked as a technical writer, a delivery boy, a tutor, and, for one glorious summer, a tour guide on Rottnest Island. His favourite foods are lasagna and donuts, and his favourite Arnie movie is Eraser. He knows how to ride a motorbike and use a chainsaw, although not both at the same time. He lives in Western Australia with his wife, his two children, and his extensive collection of The X-Files DVDs. He has never been stalked by a laundry kraken, eaten by space wasps or abducted by aliens - as far as he knows.
