"Gifted" by Donald Hounam is in fact a rather different wizard to Harry but different in a good way and I think the world does need Frank Sampson. He is a forensic sorcerer trying to solve the case of a headless bishop. The story is set in Oxford but in a different time which makes for a more intriguing read. There are some parts that indicate it is more of a teenage read -11+ There's a bit of romance in it too ;the humour adds to the quirkiness and you get absorbed into Frank's world quickly. The characters are interesting-particularly Frank and his relationship with Marvo. All in all a GOOD READ. New character for new Spring days.....go and open the book.
