The Magic Misfits 4

Hi guys! I am back after quite a while to review the 4th and final installment of The Magic Misfits series- “The Magic Misfits 4 The Fourth Suit” written by Neil Patrick Harris. 

In this thrilling finale, we get 2 plots- another glimpse of another misfit named Ridley Larsen and the other is the appearance of Kalagan, a villain they come face to face with finally. 

Whole Summary:

1st plot- Kalagan’s Appearance In Mineral Wells (finally!)

The misfits encounter trouble from Kalagan in the form of mesmerised attacks, specifically from the townspeople and who has been moving in the shadows in Mineral Wells. 

2nd plot- A glimpse into Ridley Larsen’s life

In this book, we get to see a sneak peek into what Ridley Larsen’s life is like from her personality to her parents. 

WARNING: SPOILERS UP AHEAD! (IF YOU’VE READ IT, GREAT! BUT IF NOT THEN DON’T SCROLL UP OR IF YOU JUST WANT TO SPOIL IT FOR YOURSELF THEN GO AHEAD) 

WARNING: I AM GOING TO SAY LOVE A LOT. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED 🙂

My book review:

1st plot

  • I love that we now get to see more of Kalagan’s appearance and his motivations in his attacks. 
  • I was intrigued by his method of attack- using people’s darkest secrets to manipulate them in order to attack the misfits or specifically coerce them into joining him. 
  • It was interesting that each misfit got attacked in a way that was different and that it corresponds with their lives. 
  • I love the dads. That’s it. I just love their relationship. It’s healthy and wholesome and they support each other. And the way they hold each other. It is beautiful. 🥰🥺
  • Oh. My. God. The plot twists in this one. It’s surprising how I didn’t figure this out. 
  • Like Kalagan is actually Carter’s Uncle Sly?? That is just. Wow. 
  • I was as surprised as Carter and the misfits. 😱😱
  • I was kinda surprised that the uncle followed Carter to Mineral Wells. And he looked different than I expected. 
  • A nice and neat ending to Kalagan’s reign of terror.

2nd plot

  • It’s amusing how Ridley shows her teacher Ms. Parkly a magic trick and she’s amazed like a little kid. 
  • I was surprised when I found out that Ms. Parkly was a secret guardian of Ridley and that each of the Misfit’s guardians was someone they knew as a friend.
  • It was interesting to know about Mrs. Larsen’s profession
  • I love how the book includes all forms of schooling such as traditional and non-traditional like Carter and Ridley go to a public school, Theo goes to a private school, Olly and Izzy go to school at the Grand Oak and Ridley does homeschooling. 
  • It was terrible when that librarian who was supposedly “mesmerised” ruined her invention which took her a long time to build. 
  • I admire Ridley’s knack for invention building and I wish I could stand up for myself the way Ridley does for herself when talking to the misfits. 
  • I did get suspicious at Ms. Parkly like how Ridley did because she knew nothing much about her except that she was her new teacher. 
  • I loved that the Misfits had a private welcome back/congrats show for Ridley’s invention fair. 
  • It’s intriguing how Ridley manages to stay calm when talking or arguing with the misfits. She’s trying to see their perspectives. I get it.
  • It’s cool how she has a lab of her own to do her inventions in and it’s kinda like her own personal space.
  • I love that she customised her wheelchair to include gadgets to defend herself, etc.
  • I really love that the story includes people who are disabled but still be able to have a story of their own that doesn’t always revolve around their disability.
  • It’s interesting how every time one of the misfits suggests they go to the adults, Ridley’s like nah we shouldn’t
  • I also love how Ridley’s personal arc in the story is something you can relate to as a kid.
  • It was really sweet and personal the way the story wrapped up Ridley and her mum’s understanding of each other.
  • I love their mother-daughter relationship at the end and that they bonded a lot over the course of the story. ❤️

Overall this was a great book and it created a fantastic ending for the Magic Misfits. It had a nice family aspect to it as well as the main plot.
