This middle grade fantasy is a starkly realized reimagining of our world where spirits provide almost limitless power to the Magicians who can control them.  To this day, this series remains one of my all-time favorites.  Not only is the writing itself incredible but its main character is one of the most powerful examples of character growth you will ever find in a middle grade novel.

He is about to discover, through Bosch's singularly witty storytelling, that there are things in the world that simply cannot be explained.
