LUMINESCENCE BY BRADEN BELL

ABOUT THE BOOK:
"“He’s alive!” she yelled. “He’s alive!”
As Lexa spoke the words, she knew they were true. She knew with total certainty.
“Dr. Timberi’s alive!”
When Lady Nightwing kidnapped Dr. Timberi, everyone assumed their teacher had been killed. So when Lexa discovers that he isn’t dead, Conner can’t believe his ears!
Desperate to rescue Dr. Timberi, Conner, Lexa, and Melanie turn to the last person they want to talk to, the person who started all of this chaos—the Stalker. As the Trio confront their worst fears, they realize their Magi powers may not be enough to keep everyone alive.
Your favorite characters return in this satisfying conclusion of the Middle School Magic series! Filled with plenty of twists, humor, and adventure, Luminescence will keep you guessing until the thrilling end."

 Luminescence by Braden Bell is the exciting conclusion to the Middle School Magic trilogy. After the cliffhanger at the end of Penumbras , I was exited to read it.
Luminescence does an excellent  job of tying up the loose ends and answering the big questions, like who is the stalker, is Dr Timberi really dead, why does Melanie's Dad hate the Magi, why can Pilaf hear head talk, and many more. 
The story starts with the kids Connor, Lexa and Melanie at odds because of their guilt and anger over Dr Timberi's kidnapping and possible death. I liked that they learned that by working together they were more powerful, and that Pilaf was an important part of their group.
I loved this book and the whole Middle School Magic Trilogy. I would recommend it for mid grade readers (9-13), but adult and older teens will love it too. You should read the 1st 2 books 1st, to get the whole story.
