The Magic Shop (The Shadow Magic Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
A broken family. A hidden secret. The power to destroy the magical world.
When Marcus and Ellie discover a hidden room in the family shop, they not only uncover a secret store of arcane inventory, but a magical relic at the center of a generational family feud that threatens to unravel everything they know.
But they aren’t the only ones searching for it. A dark figure from their past, backed by those who seek unrestrained power, will stop at nothing to wield the forbidden magic.
From middle school to flaming forests, and dragon dens, Marcus and Ellie must hunt the relic across a mythical, new world and work out how to stop the evil magic wielders from unleashing the destructive effects of shadow magic. How will they do it?
A page-turning magical adventure with elements of the supernatural, The Magic Shop blends magical mystery with Indiana Jones-style action adventure.

We start off with two normal children, Marcus and Ellie, at the end of the school year. From there we go on a wild and wonderful journey as they discover magic in places they least expected to.
There are good users and dark users of magic. There are a number of other species and especially a Dragon and Phoenix.
Near the end of the book, Marcus' twin, Ellie, is taken away. This leaves the story crying for a second part. I got really involved in this book and could barely set it aside to do ordinary things. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for lovers of adventure and the paranormal.
