This was definitely a fun adventure. I will admit to being a bit confused in the beginning. I wasn't really getting what was going on there. Things picked up once he went to Ireland though. Personally, I found the dialogue to be a bit jumpy. I guess I would just like it to flow a bit smoother. The bad guys were a bit over-the-top too. Flin and some of his other classmates were really fun though. I found the Cobbles to be very cool (even if I had a hard time reading their dialect). I think kids might enjoy this book more than me though, boys in particular. I can see some parts of the story that would be very appealing to them. There is certainly non-stop adventure. I think younger readers will have a great time with Flin.

After I read it I tried it out on my grandkids. The 11 year old read it and asked me for the next one. The 9 year old said it was "GREAT" and wanted to read the next one first. He did not say this about some other, better known, books. Both kids are boys and very good readers. They read everything by Rick Riodan, Brandon Mull and others. I feel that girls will like it too.
I will not go into the description of the story as the information provided by Amazon is perfect. Yes, it is confusing here and there but if you want to clear up the confusion you have to keep on reading. There were fun twists and turns in this story. I did not expect it to go where it did. It didn't even end the way I thought it would. I am buying the rest of the series for my grandkids and my school. It is a hit. It is not a take-off of "HARRY POTTER" like so many are these days. It is not like any other adventure out there. There is magic, a hint of "Destiny", growing up, learning to trust and growing friendships. It is just a good kids book meant for them.
Flin and his debate team have earned the right to go to Ireland to compete.
But what starts out pretty standard turns into everything dangerous and amazing!
Almost missing the plane because of a prank, having to ride in an old bus, experiencing an earthquake, falling below the surface of the earth, searching for a way out and finding themselves below the ocean, animals that try to eat them, plants that try to destroy them, rain tunnels, wind tunnels, finding treasure and finding friendship...all are in this wonderful book.
This book was written as a Middle Grade/YA Fantasy, but adults will love it as well.
