Editorial Reviews


Readers' Favorite:
"Chase Tinker takes readers on an exciting adventure and a magical ride. The story is fast paced and the characters - Chase, Andy, Janie, and Persephone - are all real and relatable and kids would love to have the kind of adventure they read about. It's an entertaining book and the author's descriptions are detailed and vivid, helping readers to connect well with the characters and the scenes. The Tinker House will fascinate everyone with its magic, and it is interesting to see how Chase and Andy develop their magical powers. The twist at the end is unexpected, taking readers by surprise.With young heroes, whimsy, evil, and mystery, this book will make readers look forward eagerly to its sequel."

About the Author

I love reading, writing, dancing, sunsets, Seahawks football, ladybugs, playing video games on my iPad (I'm slightly addicted to Scrabble), watching TV, pizza, and chocolate. And I love ferrets so much, I even put a pet ferret in my Chase Tinker books. :) I have terrible motion sickness and I really hate onions and mean people. I also keep Christmas lights up in my house year round. Not only are they festive, but they make lovely night lights, since I'm kind of afraid of the dark. I'd love to have the ability to teleport and the power to move things with my mind. (Those would be great for traveling and doing chores.) I live in the Seattle area with my wild and crazy ferrets. You can email me at I'd love to hear from you.

Malia Ann Haberman’s CHASE TINKER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a delightfully fun story of magical adventure that is sure to enchant young readers. Almost like a mash-up of the HARRY POTTER books, L’Engle’s WRINKLE IN TIME, and C. S. Lewis’s NARNIA stories, Haberman’s novel follows the adventures of 13-year-old Chase Tinker and his 10-year-old brother Andy as they discover the magical heritage of the Tinker family. It seems Chase’s father, Benjamin, had long ago decided to deny his family heritage, so neither Chase nor Andy knew about their powers or their history. When Benjamin is kidnapped by a shadowy group called the Dark Enemy, Chase’s grandfather shows up to take his grandchildren home to their ancestral roots. At an amazing magical mansion on the beach, Chase and Andy meet their cousin Janie and her friend Persephone, and the four of them set out to rescue Benjamin and save the magical world.

Haberman’s story is filled with clever and funny magical details which will definitely capture the imaginations of middle grade readers. The “House of Magic” is an amazing place, with magical rooms, floating staircases, and endless spaces to explore . . . and seemingly endless ways four kids can get into trouble! At the house, Chase and Andy learn to perfect their own magical powers (Chase’s is telekinesis and Andy has the ability to freeze time). They also learn the history of their family, the Tinkers, who have battled the Dark Enemy for generations, always fighting to preserve the mysterious “Relic” that holds the key to their magic. Should the Dark Enemy get their hands on the Relic, all the goodness and light in the world could be destroyed.

This is the first of a planned series of novels all revolving around Chase Tinker and his magical family.

Malia Ann Haberman exhibits her amazing talent through her story Chase Tinker and the House of Magic. I read it all in one day and refused to put it down--- Er, close my Kindle app on my computer, to be precise. Her character, Chase Tinker, develops throughout the story in such a "magical" way. I cannot wait for the next to watch Chase develop, and, hopefully, to see where he is going with Persephone.

If you are unfamiliar with the story, it is about a young boy named Chase and his younger brother Andy who have to deal with coming into strange new powers without the support of their magical father. He's gone missing. So when the boys finally share their lack of knowledge of their powers with each other, they were surprised to find the grandfather, who was supposed to be dead, at their door. They go with him back to the magical home that belongs to the Tinker family, and wondrous things happen as they gain knowledge about their family heritage, powers, and things they weren't supposed to hear.

Everything quickly starts to go downhill after their arrival, forcing the boys and their cousin, Janie, and the housekeeper's daughter, Persephone, to have to find their way through the mess of things.

Not only was her book amazing to read, it was amazing to see. I don't mean that there were pictures or videos, nor that the structure was beautiful to look at (though it was structurally flawless); just that she used a great deal of imagery and description that I felt like I was there with Chase and Andy and Janie and Persephone as they roamed the magical home filled with rooms of bizarre powers.

This is the first book in The Chase Tinker series. I loved it!

Chase Tinker is a wonderful character, though he doesn't exactly endear himself to the reader with his shoplifting antics in the beginning. However, as the story unfolded, I enjoyed watching his development from a frustrated teen into someone who I would be proud to know. He knows he has a magical talent, but it's not until his younger brother Andy has his ten and a half birthday or Dimidiatus Anniversarium that things begin to get stranger. As they discover the mystery surrounding their magical talents, danger lurks in the shadows.

I received a complimentary copy from the author in return for an honest review in 2012. Unfortunately, due to my rather large reading list, I haven't been able to read it until now. Since then it has been re-edited. I am kicking myself for not reading this book sooner. I started to read it and was hooked immediately. The story is told mostly through the eyes of Chase and Andy, though other characters have a say too. I enjoyed meeting the other characters in the story. Chase and Andy's grandfather is slightly eccentric, but I liked him a lot. Janie is Chase and Andy's cousin and also has magic. Then there is Persephone Periwinkle, the housekeeper/chef's daughter. The Tinker house on Blackberry Island is almost a character on it's own. I found myself wishing I lived in that house, it seems like a great place to grow up in, with rooms full of magic. Though I was not enamored with the cuddlepus. I don't think I would like to be cuddled by a plant, the thought makes me shudder!

This is a wonderful story full of adventure and mystery, and I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat as Chase, Andy, Janie and Persephone faced danger from a foe wanting the Relic hiding in the attic.
