About the Book



"When her father disappeared into limbo years ago, Tessa's world fell apart. It took her discovery of magic for her to begin to put things back together.

The phoenix wizard who could train her has deserted Tessa. She has friends among the Iron dwarves and harpies, even a lesser demon, and the mysterious Malender with his sinister whip of thorns and fire. But she is still faced with a delicate balancing act. Then her mother incurs the wrath of the magical world when she writes a dissertation exposing its reality. That is the final straw, as Magic fights back and an assassin accepts a contract on their lives. Tessa must learn to master her new powers as a sorceress, or everyone and everything she loves is doomed"--



Book Synopsis



The third book in this contemporary fantasy series returns to the life of Tessa Andrews as she balances the magical and mundane worlds.

When her father disappeared into limbo years ago, Tessa's world fell apart. It took her discovery of magic for her to begin to put things back together. But she hasn't been able to restore her father from his ghostly half-existence--and he is fading fast.

Magic has a price, and Tessa is learning that it is both steep and deadly. The phoenix wizard who could train her has deserted Tessa. She has friends among the Iron dwarves and harpies, even a lesser demon, and the mysterious Malender with his sinister whip of thorns and fire. But she is still faced with a delicate balancing act.

Then her mother incurs the wrath of the magical world when she writes a dissertation exposing its reality. That is the final straw, as Magic fights back and an assassin accepts a contract on their lives. Tessa must learn to master her new powers as a sorceress, or everyone and everything she loves is doomed.

Sara Hanover knows her way around the written word.... I absolutely loved this book. I can't wait to buy a copy and put it on my bookshelf. Hanover is now on my list of 'must buy'. --Galleywampus

With so many fantasy books for young adults coming out, it's easy to find repetitions of the same magic systems. But Hanover's story follows its own rules, and it stands out from most of the others. --Culturess

There is a highly creative mind behind the pen, and I look forward to any subsequent novel by this author. --Koeur's Book Reviews

There's plenty of action, mystery, and family drama to be had within this book to make you wanting more. --Pass Me That Book

The Late Great Wizard is a fun adventure and a nice opener to an interesting world.... If you enjoy a little magic in your reads, The Late Great Wizard is a fun ride. --Game Vortex
