Book Description

When Maxwell is mistaken for the descendant of a line of noble knights he is kidnapped and cast in to a magical world of bipolar witches, depressed Cyclopes, a beautiful maiden and a missing alphabet. As he struggles to find his place in this strange new world he must thwart a nefarious plot by a criminal mastermind bent on capturing the throne for himself.

Maxwell's Closet is a book with a lot of humor and a big heart. It is a story of betrayal, revenge and growing up in a confusing world. Throughout the story Maxwell encounters strange new people and places that test his patience and his wits. He is forced to learn to rely on himself and finds that he is capable of more than he could have ever dreamed.

Maxwell's closet is a really fun, easy read and perfect for the young fantasy reader. Its Alice in Wonderland meets Lord of the Rings, for a bit younger audience of course. Maxwell goes "down the rabbit hole" so to speak when the orcs pull him into his bedroom closet and finds a world of myth and fantasy that will be the setting for his heroic quest. I loved the way the characters speak and I was always on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed the way to author allowed the "dominoes" to topple in quick succession. It made for a thrilling journey with the characters and I just really enjoyed the style, I don't need long gasps of air in between events, I like the momentum to keep rolling. I look forward to many more works of this caliber and beyond.

3.0 out of 5 stars just ok April 18, 2012

The story line was easy to follow, but it was hard to determine what age this book is best for. At times it seemed to be written for a child and at times the implications were for an older audience. I don't think the plot was particularly interesting and would not recommend this book.
