Magdalena Gottschalk: Lindtzl Kingdom is a work of fantasy fiction for preteen children, penned by author M. Gail Grant. The third book in the series which follows title character Magdalena, this one picks up right where The Slippery Slope left off. Entering The Enchanted Forest once again, the gang is indebted to Queen Lindtzl for saving their lives, and now the Queen is missing. A new evil must be afoot, slowly taking over the kingdom, and Magdalena will need her magical powers and the strength of faith to find it and defeat it. The combination of Christian and fantasy fiction collides in an all-out, action-packed novel suitable for middle grade readers aged 9 to 12.
M. Gail Grant knows the characters of The Enchanted Forest well, and the bonds between Magdalena and her friends are beautifully strong for this, the third instalment in their adventures. The emotional resonance of the experiences which they have shared is very present in the book’s opening, and the tale teaches important values about serving others, resisting dark forces and keeping your spirit kind and giving. The fantasy system of the story is well imagined, with different ‘demons’ and an exciting variety of foes for the young heroes to face. Magdalena herself is, by and large, a normal girl thrown into extraordinary circumstances, and the Christian theme underlying the tale doesn’t distract from the fantasy plot, but enhances it cohesively. Overall, Magdalena Gottschalk: Lindtzl Kingdom is a recommended read in a fun fantasy series, suitable for all.
