I really enjoyed reading this book. It takes you through the wizarding world first-hand to a familiar. Three familiars throughout the book show true friendship, trust, and loyalty to their owners. This is a great page-turner and I really reccomend it!

A good first novel, interesting twist to have the animal familiars as the main characters instead of their magicians. Enjoyed the story, my prediction is there will be others in the series.

I cannot renew this book through online. Please check. Thanks.

But they all soon find out that another familiar is the source of evil...
