The Rite of Wands by Mackenzie Flohr
And so begins the tale of Mierta McKinnon. When a horrible fate reveals itself during his Rite of Wands ceremony, he must find a way to change not only his destiny but also the land of Iverna’s.
Forbidden from revealing the future he foresees to anyone, he is granted a wand and his magical powers, but still must master the realm of magic in order to save himself and those he loves.
But Mierta is not the only one with secrets…especially when it’s impossible to know who to trust.

1. Kris – 5 stars – Feb 23, 2017
It was a great read, I am sorry I don’t have the sequel right now. It is a well thought out story and has engaging characters. I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see what happens to the characters in the story.
The story shifts point of view throughout and the author does a good job handling the switches. The author kept me engaged and I finished it in a matter of days.

4. Shakyra Dunn – “I was thrilled to read this book after getting a glimpse of the synopsis, and I was not at all disappointed.
The novel was short, but I got a lot of insight into the characters, particularly taking interest in Mierta. His precocious nature as a child was appealing, and over time you watch him gradually change into a man warped by what fate has set out for him. This level of development has always drawn me into a plot, for I feel that strong characters such as him and Orlynd carry the tale with grace.
I look forward to the sequel! (I’m also going to do a more extensive analysis on my blog in the coming days!)”
About The Author: Mackenzie Flohr
From the time she could hold a pencil, Mackenzie was already creating pictorial interpretations of classic stories, and by the age of nine, she and a childhood friend were authors and reviewers of their own picture books.
While following her love of adventure, Mackenzie found a second home, the Beck Center for the Arts Children’s and Teen Theater School. It was there that a world of wonder was only a script and a performance away.
Yet it wasn’t until she was on a trip to Indiana, viewing a Lord of the Rings exhibit, that the innermost desire of her heart became clear to her. She wanted to write a fantasy of her own, one that could inspire imagination in others and lead them into a magical world of their own making. She hopes The Rite of Wands will do just that.
Wherever we live and wherever we come from is our individual heartland. Anything is possible and everything can happen. Pure imagination is in all of us—we only need to discover it, and sometimes story telling helps.
