I was rather excited about this book from the moment I was first told about it. The person telling me about the book generally doesn't like children's books, so when she was proving to be excited about it, I thought I should be paying attention to that. And you know what? She was right. There is so m Leggi tutto
This will have to be on my list of top children's titles for 2015, since it's not out yet (cheater pants, with your advance copy). The book itself is titled The Keepers: The Box and the Dragonfly, so I think it is the prequel and the actual story. I will have to ask the Harper rep when she comes by
An everyday boy from Chicago finds a secret shop and a magical talisman that's linked to him. A epic quest unfolds slowly, as he meets tall creepy villains and a spunky girl who also has a magic talisman. And then finally, they meet the old man and old woman who explain the epic war that's about to
I won't put myself through an entire 600 page book if it's not a lot of fun, but this IS a lot of fun. Some science, some fantasy, main characters I liked a lot, and a promise of COOL MOM in book two. I hope the old person wardens become an even dicier issue in the future. Good rec for Percy Jackson Leggi tutto

Drawn to a particular box inside a mysterious store, Horace finds his new gift changing the way he looks at everything around him, as well as leading him to befriend the surly Chloe and join a group dedicated to protecting children like them from a terrible evil looking to capture them. Sanders will Leggi tutto
I was unprepared for what awaited me after my wife, who works in the media, brought home an advance copy of this book, and gave it our 9-year-old -- who after immediately devouring it gave it to me for my birthday. Who would think that an exciting fantasy story marketed for kids would cast its most
4.5 actual rating while about 75% of the way thru this I was feeling like it was a chore to finish, and wondered if maaybe it should've been edited down a hundred pages or more but couldn't put forth the energy to really decide if it was necessary. even if the buildup was a little too long and the de Leggi tutto
I have some mixed feelings about this story. Let's get to the good things first: -solid writing and characterization. -unique and complex magic system. -lots of action. -few to no plot holes (this is difficult in a book this long- good job, Sanders!) -most things made sense in time. -time travel without Leggi tutto
