Midlife Magic School by Nicole Wells is the first book in a series which features a fifty-year-old heroine who unwittingly discovered that she was a witch on the night of her fiftieth birthday. The story took me on a magical journey into a fantasy world, filled with interesting characters and where the quest for power, greed, hate and love mirrored reality.

Going to magic school at fifty is the least of Chloe’s worries. 

A magical inheritance. A dog with an attitude. A sexy headmaster. And people trying to kill her. 

When Chloe receives a bolt of magic out of the blue on her fiftieth birthday, she’s cast into an exciting but tumultuous world filled with Shifters, Elementals, Witches, and one very hot headmaster Witch. In order to return the inheritance to its rightful owner, and satisfy her curiosity at the same time, she must go to the Universal Magush Academy and learn all about the magical community while keeping one big secret—she’s human. 

Or is she?

Threats to her life and those she holds dear lurk in every corner. As if that wasn’t enough, students and teachers alike hate her on sight.

As she digs deep to discover who she is, she finds herself in the middle of two battles: one for the fate of humanity and one for the peace of the magic realm. Soon these twisting fates have Chloe questioning everything she thought she knew.

 But maybe, with the help of a sexy sidekick and a handful of misfit friends, she’ll teach this magic world a thing or two. 

And she might just turn both worlds on their heads while she’s at it…

Chloe Jones the heroine of this magical and entertaining story suddenly finds herself living a whole new world. A world where magic, Witches, shifters and werewolves abide.  Now Chloe was not the typical heroine one usually associates with this type of story. She recently celebrated her fiftieth birthday, and during this momentous occasion she learnt of her magical birthright. Now she needs to attend magic school to learn how to tap into her powers. What followed was an intriguing tale of light versus dark.


Wells created an authentic character in Chloe. Her actions throughout the story rang true for a fifty-year-old divorcee. Especially one who recently discovered she had magic abilities and needed to return to college to hone those skills. It took her sometime to acclimatize to the sudden changes. She navigated college like a trooper amidst the animosity and suspicion from fellow students and members of the faculty. Support from the handsome and sexy headmaster, Lex, a few dorm mates and a quirky familiar aided her in navigating this whole new world.

Throughout the story, secrets came to light and with each revelation, the danger increases. Soon Chloe will find herself in a position where she fights for her life and that of her children. Through it all, she learns truths about her past, which brought a mixture of joy and pain.

I loved the world the author created and had a wonderful time immersing myself in it. The story delivered some romance on the side, which unfortunately did not wow me. Mention was made of chemistry between Chloe and Lex, but I never felt it. I expected there to be more action and suspenseful moments; however, this was not the case. The first half of the story moved at a steady pace, after which it picked up. This was mainly because Wells provided information about the world and the character’s backstory.

The story ended in a manner which has me wondering about the next book. I wouldn’t call it a cliffhanger, but it’s clear there are still more questions to be answered. Despite the lackluster romance and the slow pacing in the first half of the story, Midlife Magic School was a fun read. If you love stories featuring witches and magic, then Midlife Magic School would make a great addition to your reading list.
