Matt Myklusch
"An ingenious but aimless kid, a legendary but scandal-scarred magician, a miniature supercollider, a coin—nothing it what it seems in The Order of the Majestic. Matt Myklusch weaves a spell that is as much about the magic of storytelling as it is about magic itself. With dazzling plot twists and nonstop action, Myklusch conjures a cast of dynamic characters and a lovable hero whose journey to greatness will make readers scream for more! I loved it!"
