Royal Institute of Magic by Victor Kloss is a magical journey through Unseen worlds, of elves, goblins and dragons. The main protagonist is Ben whose parents disappeared a while ago, never to be found. All he has is a piece of cloth. He and his best mate, Charlie, soon find themselves on the outer of these Unseen Kingdoms. Firstly, they are transported on Dragonway and then find themselves at the Institute where they meet Natalie, the third of their trio. Each of these characters have almost equal play (and say) in their predicaments. Soon they avoid the Wardens and find themselves in the forest of the wood-elves but then all hell breaks loose and Natalie is separated from them. Ben and Charlie eventually find themselves at the Floating Prison where a few will be beheaded unless Ben's parents turn up. Suitable for middle grade.
