Caller of Lightning (Arcane America Book 3)

We rated this book:


This is a twisting tale following Ben Franklin as he is thrust into the mysterious world of magic. This book begins with Ben Franklin’s experiment with a kite, a key, and a storm. In an attempt to pull lightning from the sky and capture it in a bottle, Ben is imbued with the power to command electricity. Soon his forays into the arcane world lead him to discover that he is not alone in his abilities. In fact, he is quite the novice in the field of spell casting. His new abilities attract the attention of multiple powerful figures, and who he decides to align with may decide the fate of the world itself.

I enjoyed the plot very much. It was fast-paced, intriguing, and very realistic, apart from the magic of course. I liked how the authors told the story from multiple perspectives; this really helped hold my attention. My favorite character was Polly, but all of the characters were well developed and perfectly fit their roles in the story. The language flowed well and was easy for me to understand. The dialogue, and the language in general, felt quite modern, despite the book being set in Colonial America.

The language, scenes, and tone of the book may not be suitable for younger or less advanced readers. Readers who enjoy fantasy books will definitely enjoy this book. This book was a joy to read. If you’re an older or advanced reader, you should totally give this book a read. You won’t regret it.
