Luminescence, by Braden Bell, Middle School Magic Series

Luminescence, by Braden Bell

My friend, Braden Bell, has a new book out, entitled Luminescence. It’s the third book in his Middle School Magic Series.

I love this series!

It’s about three middle school friends who find out they have special powers, the ability to use light to help themselves and others. They’re taught how to use these new powers by Magi, who happen to be their teachers in their middle school.


Throughout this series, I’ve grown to adore these three teens, Conner, Lexa, and Melanie. They’re all battling insecurities and weakness of their own while trying to help save the world from the Darkhands threatening to destroy it.

This third book does a fabulous job keeping you reading, wondering and anxious for the three kids as well as their beloved mentor, Dr. Timberi.

I loved the overarching theme of redemption. It’s a story of forgiveness and overcoming for the better good. Plus the humor and budding middle school romance makes me smile.

Make sure to check out this series. You and your kids will love it!
