THE MAGIC FACTORY: OLIVER BLUE AND THE SCHOOL FOR SEERS (BOOK ONE) tells the story of one very special boy, Oliver Blue, different than those around him and unloved by his hateful family. Obsessed with inventions, Oliver is determined to escape his horrible life and make his mark on the world.

When Oliver’s family moves again, to another awful house and school, he is bullied and excluded, and sees no way out. But when he stumbles across an abandoned invention factory, he wonders if this could be his way out. Who is the mysterious old inventor hiding in the factory? What is his secret invention?

And might this factory be a portal to somewhere else?

    One almost thinks that in the beginning it was on the same lines as a Harry Potter twin. But keep reading, the twist comes along! Very intriguing story plot. Definitely reading this series :)
  • Went too hard in the paint

    By NoahRosenrosen
    I liked the bullying/anxiety build up at first, but Lucas took the shtick too far. Also, black is the color that reflects no spectrum of light. White reflects them all.
  • Wow Amazing

    This is the best book I’ve read single handedly took my breathe away. I’ve never been more interested in a book since I was in middle school. If the author reads this I want you to know you are one of the best writers of all time i will continue to read and finish this adventure. Thank You For the Book Sincerely Edgar Garcia
  • Loved it!

    The Magic Factory is such a fun and exciting story! Oliver seems to grow more and more relatable with every struggle he faces, at least for me. The cast of characters is awesome, as is fairly typical for Rice. The villains are so easy to hate and the good guys are so easy to cheer for. It’s just great to have some decent, straightforward, relatable stories to read now and then, and I can always count on Morgan Rice for that.
  • Exciting new series

    Oliver Blue is a misfit bullied young boy who discovers who he really is in this series. Being a Seer added a twist along with time traveling. The kids and I loved it and can’t wait for the next book to come out.
  • Rollicking fun!

    By PhantasyPhan
    The story takes off at a run and just keeps going..loved it. Characters are vividly real without getting bogged down in over descriptive detail. Will definitely keep following the series.
  • Wanted to love it...

    By My toes hurt
    I’m a long time fan of Morgan Rice so I was excited to start this book. Unfortunately, I found it ponderous, predictable, and not on par with her other work.
  • Awesome
