Steve Novak is an amazing storyteller and this book more than proves that! Finally something different in an adventure story. I'm looking forward to the next two! I thought that it was kind of cool that each chapter has its own little illustration.

I definitely recommend this book!

You should buy this book for your kid, and then read it yourself.

The story, creatures and settings in this book create a rich new world (99 new worlds, actually) that we only begin to explore in the first of what I hope to be many books in this series. Perhaps though, it's the window back into childhood that makes the story so dear to me. It's not just an amazing adventure, although that would have been enough. It's also a touching reminder of what it is to be human (perhaps 'sentient' would be more accurate...). I loved it.

Format: Paperback
Steven Novak creates a dizzying swirl of the best and worst of every childhood. With a blend of features from beloved movies only distantly remembered as favorites over the years, he merges it all into a palatable whole all his own. One might assume a grim reality being born within the pages of Forts, but the reader is rewarded with insights into changing destiny and overcoming any situation no matter how horrible.

I found "Forts: Fathers and Sons" to be a delightful story. The reader becomes immediately involved in the lives of the main characters before they are thrust upon a journey which forever changes their lives. Like Alice and her adventures through the looking glass, the children are caught up in the machinations of war and conquest as they try to find their way home. Alien creatures, prophesies, strange powers and magic promises a thrilling ride. A must read!

The title is listed as YA, and it is about right for ages 11 and up, but it is also for adults. I found myself invested in the characters to the point that I didn't want to let go of it. It is my understanding that there are three in this series, the second to come out sometime around Thanksgiving. I will be looking for it.
