    Bartlemy Goodman is approximately 1500 years old. An albino of Greek parentage, he was born in Byzantium during the decline of the Roman Empire - and now resides at Thornyhill house in England, with his dog, Hoover. Bartlemy is one of the Gifted. But experience has taught him the perils of the power of the witch-kind, and so through the ages he has channeled his considerable talents into cooking, his culinary prowess becoming the stuff of legend: Rumor has it, he was among the first to discover chocolate.

    Story

    This has been compared to Harry Potter, with good reason. It is well written, and though it seems to have many similar elements to the Potter books, it stands on its own as a book for both children and adults re magic and reality.
    The story line is pretty original. The grail does not refer to the Arthurian legend, at least not directly. There is an incorporation of other worlds and evil demon beings, enough to keep the story interesting and only a bit scary. There is enough magic here for those who like it; and enough of the trials of growing up and parenting to keep it grounded in reality. This book stands on its own, with a satisfactory ending; but I would hope that the other 2 of the trilogy will be out on Audible soon!
