I am not a kid by any leap of the imagination but I loved this book. It's characters had many exciting adventures to magical places with newly made magical creatures. For me, the best part was the story line that was clean - sorry to all but no sex, profanity, blood, or gore - that is why I find books in this age group so much more fun to read. I did all the other stuff before, curiosity being the reason, and now I like these types of fantasy books. When I finish them I pass them on to my middle school granddaughter.

Must read - Cynthia

This YA Fantasy story is a classic Quest tale which involves 4 young lads and a boat. It's a lovely story but not in any sickly sweet meaning of the term. The boys' characters are really believable. They have their individual skills but have their faults too. A real touch of class is Mahra, a shape changer who spends so much time as a cat that when she is in girl form she is often to be found licking her hand! These youngsters are on the side of Order and battle to keep Chaos and Order in balance. They possess (because one of them stole it!) a magic book which unfolds for them they way to find the artefacts they must gather together. The Merchant from whom the book was stolen has enlisted a hunter to find them and in his turn he has recruited some really evil henchmen - Demons.

The story is well written and bounces along nicely. There's plenty of action which will certainly keep a young audience attentive - it kept me happy too! I think there might even be room in the tale for a sequel.

I'm a little divided between giving this one a four or five star rating. So I've settled for four and one half. The Flight of the Griffin is a fun fantasy adventure perfect for the middle grade reader. It has likeable young characters, a dastardly villain with his hired hunter/henchman, the struggle between the powers of good and evil (the 'Source' and 'Chaos'), and plenty of magic. It was well paced and contained great little details like including images of the poetic magic book that sets the young heroes on their quest of 'challenges.'

The story follows four boys who fall into a quest that involves finding three very important items necessary to accomplish a spell that will restore the balance of power between the Source and Chaos. To begin their adventure, the boys are transformed into a fighter, a thief, a priest, and a magician. Accompanied by an unusual shape shifting girl, the boys encounter many obstacles and dangerous situations along the way.

I really liked the story and think it would probably appeal to readers who enjoyed Cornelia Funke's Inkheart series and maybe some of the early Robert Jordan Wheel of Time novels. I think it could have used a few more dire situations and little more suspense to keep the reader truly glued to the story, but I think it was very well done.

Flight of the Griffin - C. M. Gray - four and a half stars

Flight of the Griffin by author C. M. Gray is a wonderful adventure for young teens but I found it fine for all ages. It is the end times for the world, and the tale opens when Pardigan, the boy-thief, steals a knife and a book from a merchant's locked cabinet and sets the events into motion. Quint, the leader of his group of friends is the strongest and is a fighter. Loras is the boy-magician whose master died before Loras could learn what he needed to know and who's magic never works right. Tarent is a dreamer, a storyteller and he keeps the other boys' spirits up when times are hard. Orphans all, they live on the abandoned boat, The Griffin.

Along with the knife and other loot from the merchant's house, Pardigan has also gained a strange, magical talking cat named Mahra. This cat who changes back and forth from a girl, to an owl, to a cat, depending on her mood, knows how to unlock the secrets of the magical knife and book. They do as they are told to and become the Magician, Thief, Priest and Fighter, four heroes with a task to right the balance of the world which must have equal amounts of Order and Chaos. They have been chosen to be the Soldiers for Order and to oppose Chaos in a quest that pits them against magic, demons and `The Hawk,' an evil hunter of men.

I really like the way the four boys are real - they are written as boys are, unfinished and not quite men yet, but the promise of their adulthood is there in each of them. Mahra is an old soul (literally hundreds of years old) and is written as such, but she is also young in many ways.

The travels and adventures the boys and Mahra have are well written and believable. The scenery and the backgrounds against which the tale takes place are rich and yet not overdone. I would recommend this book to anyone who simply loves a good adventure.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I know it says it's for ages 8-18, I still enjoyed it as an adult. The storyline was great as well as the character development. I highly recommend this book. I see there is a book 2, which I'm loo,ingredients forward to reading.

Four boys. Four powers. One quest: find three magical skulls and return the balance before chaos takes over. Aided by a talking cat and a book, the four friends set off in their boat, the Griffin, to find the skulls while dodging the demon king who chases them. Fun and creative, The Flight of the Griffin takes the reader on a search across a fantastical world. While I enjoyed C.M. Gray's Shadowland more, this is a solid good read, especially suited for 10 - 12 year old boys. I give it 3.5 stars.
