When Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Pokémon merge into ONE BOOK – The Novice by Taran Matharu

I have to admit that I’ve heard of this series quite often before I ever decided to pick it up. I wasn’t entirely sold on it, but then I heard Taran Matharu himself was coming to Belgium and the Netherlands so… Suddenly I just had to read them and see whether or not I liked them?! Firstly because international authors rarely come to my country, secondly because… well… it was the motivation I needed to see what certain people were raving about.
