4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginning to New Middle Grade Fantasy, March 8, 2014
This review is from: Sky Raiders (Five Kingdoms) (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It started out as an ordinary night of trick or treating by Cole Randolph and his friends but things quickly changed when the kids visited a scary haunted house. They didn't know that the monsters were real and that they would be kidnapped and taken to another world as slaves. Though Cole manages to hide from the slavers, he decides to follow them to see if he can rescue his friends. However, he is quickly captured and made a slave.

Cole is sold to the Sky Raiders who live on the edge and scavenge from castles floating on clouds. Cole begins as a scout which is the most dangerous job. He makes friends with Mira and Twitch and has a friendly rival named Jace. The kids decide to escape from slavery when the High King sends his legionnaires to capture Mira.

The kids escape into the cloudwall despite the fact that no one who enters ever returns. There they meet an old shaper and his apprentices who are also hiding from the High King. Secrets are revealed and the kids go on a quest.

The story is full of action and adventure in a world where talented shapers can make anything they can imagine. I really liked Cole because he was loyal to his friends, brave and resourceful. This is the first book in a series and leaves lots of questions remaining to be answered in further volumes.
