You don’t find a talking goldfish every day – especially one who calls himself a wizard from another planet. So when James encounters Mendel, he is understandably surprised. But James thinks Mendel and his planet might have something to do with his father’s disappearance, so he willingly follows him to his home planet, Denthan.
But Denthan’s sun is about to explode. Mendel disappears soon after he, his friend Craig, and Craig’s dog, Bero, arrive. Now they find themselves alone to fight strange beings and look for Mendel so they can try to save the city. And everywhere he goes, James expects to find signs his father is there.
Full of intrigue, magical creatures, and wars between menacing beasts, The Magic Scales is a fast-paced, exciting adventure, with good triumphing in the end for a satisfying conclusion. A great read!
