In the epic conclusion to the Conjurian series, siblings Alex and Emma must fight to save the enchanted world, where magic is real and skilled illusionists can perform actual tricks—for better or worse. This highly illustrated fantasy series is perfect for fans of The Land of Stories series.
“A magical adventure inspired by us? We have to read it! And so do you!” —Penn Jillette, half of the Emmy-winning magic-comedy duo Penn & Teller
Years ago, Alex and Emma's parents disappeared trying to protect magic. Now Alex thinks he knows how to find them—if only his sister, their talking rabbit Pimawa, and their friend Savachia would trust fate to guide the way. The problem: Alex's “fate” keeps leading the group straight into danger. Specifically, into an enchanted jungle where a tree-like creature named Awen seems intent on doing them harm.
But Alex is certain Awen knows more than she is letting on. And when she is captured, the kids follow the trail to the city of magic: Las Vegas. In the desert, sleight-of-hand runs the show, and at the center of it all is Angel Xavier, an evil conjurian who will stop at nothing to seize power. The kids need a trick up their sleeve—and a few new allies to help—if they have any hope of saving their parents, and magic, once and for all!
