Wizard for Hire (Wizard for Hire #1)

Fourteen-year-old Ozzy lives near Portland, Oregon, and is desperate for help. His scientist parents have been kidnapped after discovering a formula that enables mind control. Their work was so top secret Ozzy is afraid to go to the police, but without help, he fears he'll never find his parents. Then he stumbles across a classified ad in the local newspaper that says "Wizard for Hire. Call 555-SPEL." Ozzy has read about wizards in books like Harry Potter, but wizards couldn't actually exist today, could they? After Ozzy meets the wizard Labyrinth--aka Rin--he's even more skeptical. Sure, Rin dresses like a wizard, but the short robe and high-top tennis shoes seem unorthodox, as does Rin's habit of writing notes on his shoes and eating breakfast for every meal. Plus, Rin doesn't even cast any magic spells, which means that the unexplained coincidences that start happening around Ozzy are just that--coincidences. With the help of a robotic-talking raven invented by Ozzy's father, a kind and curious girl at school who decides to help Ozzy, and, of course, a self-proclaimed wizard who may or may not have a magical wand, Ozzy begins an unforgettable quest that will lead him closer to the answers he desperately seeks about his missing parents....

Wizard for Hire (Wizard for Hire #1) Reviews

  • David

    This was my first experience with Obert Skye. I thought the book started off exciting and engaging and kept going from there! I was interested to see what would happen next, and the main characters were all unique. The question of whether Rin is really a wizard became a question that, for me, didn't need to be answered the more the story went along. It was enough that he was doing "magical" things that had the same result. The themes of family and companionship as well as coming-of-age were subj ...more

    I thought going in that this was going to be much more fantastical than it ended up being. In fact, it may be up for debate whether there is even any magic in this book which is odd considering the title. But the author leaves it up to the reader to decide whether to believe Rin is really a wizard or not. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure myself. Rin is definitely an eccentric character, calling himself a wizard, running around in half a robe and a sorcerer's hat, along with his sneakers and j ...more

  • Dana

    This is a fun read for middle grade kids and teens. When Ozzy was 7 years old, he and his parents, who were scientists, moved away to live in the woods far away from anyone. Then, his parents are kidnapped and he is left alone. He survives and most of the story takes place when Ozzy is 14 years old and re-enters society and goes to high school and finds an ad for a wizard named Rin, and hires him to find his parents. Along with a sentient mechanical bird made by his scientist parents, Ozzy and R ...more

    I hadn't read anything by this author before, but was pleasantly surprised by how easy this book was to read and interested in where the story would go.

    There was a lot of humor and excitement and even some deeper moments of apology and loss mixed in with a bunch of breakfast and a talking metal bird.

    It was interesting to me that the wizard wasn't introduced until a quarter of the way through the book. I expected that to happen quite a bit sooner. I loved how they just kept adding to the strange

    This book was good! Unfortunately, I think it's just not the kind of thing I'm ever going to be super jazzed up by. Ozzy was sympathetic, there was a lot of humor, the "is-he-a-wizard-or-just-a-crazy-man" mystery with Labyrinth, etc.... All of it was fine, but I've never done well with absurdity, and too much craziness crowded out my ability to care about the characters.

  • P.M.

    This is a book I have been waiting to get my hands on since I loved the Leven Thumps series. The author did not disappoint me with this quirky book about a seven year old boy whose parents are kidnapped, leaving him alone in the family cabin in the Oregon woods. Fast forward a few years when Ozzy finds a mechanical, solar-charged, raven who is self-aware and talks. Clark the raven becomes Ozzy's best friend and persuades him to venture out of his isolation. That decision leads Ozzy to Labyrinth, ...more

    I was fortunate to get an ARC of this book. There is much to like about Wizard for Hire. An engrossing read, it kept me turning the pages late into the night and during the days. Ozzy was left behind as a young boy after his parents were abducted in a secluded cabin in the Oregon woods. He's a smart kid and lives on his own in the middle of nowhere for years. This hook pulled me in right away, making me care about this kid and the strange circumstances he found himself in. There is heart and hum ...more

    Wizard for Hire is funny, clever and full of heart. I love the way this author writes. There are subtle hints of cleverness, humor and mystery in the way he writes. I loved this book. Ozzy was a fantastic character, naive and trusting, but wonderful. Clark was an enjoyable and amusing addition. The most surprising character was Rin. I loved what he brought to this fun story. This book is very entertaining. Ozzy's determination was refreshing.
