Book Description

Fifteen-year-old Cooper would rather spend the summer playing the latest Zombie Civil War Style video game than with his ailing great grandfather, Orson. But when Orson’s Civil War stories reveal a treasure buried near his home in Pea Ridge Arkansas, Cooper not only pays attention--he gets involved.

An ancient map and journal lead Cooper to the same spot in the forest where dozens of people have searched for the legendary treasure. Cooper is trapped by a ferocious dog and forced to fight for his life while he tries to uncover the mystery and locate the treasure that is unlike anything he ever imagined.

In this young adult adventure story, Brookins gives readers a treasure that's the perfect length for busy tweens and teens.

BONUS: Treasure Quest also includes the first three chapters Cara Brookins' new time-travel series,Timeshifters, beginning with Journey 1, Mark of the Centipede.

Treasure Quest

If you like treasure hunts, then you're going to enjoy reading Treasure Quest by Cara Brookins.

Cooper is a fifteen year old boy who goes to visit his great grandfather, Orson. The story is told from Cooper's point-of-view and Brookins does a great job of getting the reader inside Cooper's head.

Orson tells Cooper of a treasure, hidden at the beginning of the Civil War by one of his ancestors to protect their family heirlooms. The descendants have been searching for the treasure for over one-hundred years, but the hiding place was altered at the last minute and no one has been able to find it.

With his dad gone on a business trip and Orson too frail to accompany him, Cooper has to go out on his own to search for the treasure, overcoming deadly obstacles on the way. The ending leaves the reader satisfied that Cooper's quest was successful, and adds a twist, hinting that there are more adventures to be told.

Mark of the Centipede

Following Treasure Quest, Cara Brookins reveals the first three chapters of her new novel, Mark of the Centipede. This is the first story in her new young adult time-travel series.

First, we learn that sometime in the future, a young man named Namor will chase someone named Jordan Booker through time because Jordan killed his parents.

In the present, protagonists Jordan and Jada Booker must live with their sloppy, irresponsible aunt after both their parents are killed by a drunk driver. Jordan has to be brother and parent to Jada in the absence of a dependable adult. While exploring the property, fifteen year old Jordan discovers a shed with alien-looking equipment inside.

This a good teaser that made me want to know how he becomes a time traveler and what situation caused Jordan to seemingly step out of character and kill Namor's parents.

Treasure Quest and Mark of the Centipede are both available on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Quest May 15, 2013

Quick easy read, but by no means is it boring. Characters are realistic and believable. Cooper getting to know his Great Grandfather was very endearing and at times comical. His relationship with his father is typical of a lot of teenager/parents, which makes you want to route for Cooper. Cara Brookins did a wonderful job describing the adventure vividly, making you feel as if you were right there with him experiencing the same things. Great for young and old alike. I don't think you will be disappointed with this story. I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Adventure Story! May 15, 2013
By Alex
Format:Kindle Edition
I would recommend Treasure Quest to anyone looking for an exciting read! Treasure Quest is the perfect quick read for any adventure-loving reader. Growing up in the South I developed a deep love for Civil War history, but I could have never dreamed of a Civil War treasure that led to a hunt as suspenseful as this one.

After Cooper is inspired by tales of a Civil War treasure from his grandfather. He abandons his summer plans of zombie video games and embarks on a search for treasure! Will Cooper find Civil War treasure? Will he even make it through his quest?

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting May 17, 2013

This is a charming and interesting story about a 15-year-old cat named Cooper and his great-grandfather cat Orson teaming up to solve a generations-old family mystery involving stolen catnip and the infamous mice heist. Cooper is an engaging cat that is easy to love, (probably because he is a cat), and his dialogue is humorous and realistic (meow meow). 10/10 would recommend inb4 cats.
