Icespell by C. J. Busby

Join Max and Olivia for more magical thrills, spills and spells in their third hilarious adventure. Max and Olivia are loving life in Camelot - not only is Max having magic lessons with the great wizard Merlin, Olivia is finally in training for the Squire's Challenge. But disaster strikes when Camelot is frozen inside a magical mountain of ice and it's all Max's fault! Can he and Olivia rescue Arthur and Merlin from their icy prison before evil Lady Morgana gets to Camelot and seals their doom?
