Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers’ Favorite (24/03/2017)

Wow! Just, wow! That’s exactly what I thought when I finished reading Mia’s Magic Wand, the new book by author Peter Volkofsky. This story grabbed me from the very start and kept me obsessively reading all the way through until the very end! Follow the story of Mia, a woman who was drugged and raped by philanthropist Tate Wolsey. Tate’s wife provides Mia with an archive of videos that Tate held in reserve for the purposes of blackmailing others. Tate had called these tapes his “magic wand” and suddenly Mia finds herself in possession of them. Many want what she now possesses, and are willing to do just about anything to obtain them. Will Mia be able to use the “magic wand” for what she desperately wants, the return of her daughter, or will she die trying? You’ll need to read this fantastic book to find out!

I loved Mia’s Magic Wand. Loved. It. Author Peter Volkofsky has done a fantastic job in creating an exciting story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, as well as characters that they will connect with, relate to and truly come to care about. If that isn’t a hallmark of a great author, I’m not sure what is. Any reader who loves an exciting and suspenseful work of fiction should absolutely read this book. I am so pleased to be able to highly recommend Mia’s Magic Wand and look forward to reading more from the obviously talented author, Peter Volkofsky, as soon as I possibly can!


A Beautiful Quest


Whether we know it or not, we are on a perilous and beautiful quest. We are told in this book, for example, that we “must follow love,” which conjures up images of sentimental songs, flowers and dishonesty. But the love being talked about here turns out to be something far more practical and mysterious. So, exactly what is this quest all about? It emerges that it’s about home and family, community and neighbourhood, and in particular, about God, which involves sacrifice. Unfortunately, these sacrifices can be wrongheaded and we can get badly hurt and lose hope. Beautiful Quest understands this and leads us to places of clarity and new hope. Having enabled us to find our way again, it dares us to once more walk with God in a world deep with love, light and danger. We re-discover why knowing God is so irresistible.
