If you're looking to get a middle school student interested and excited to read, this is the book for you! We have several copies in our library, and the book is literally flying off of the shelf. Due to the wait list, we've decided to purchase a few more copies. A book that gets middle school age students wanting to read? What else is there to say?! Brad LaMar hits a homerun with this exciting tale!

I won this book from Goodreads. A father is needing to do some family research in Ireland and decides to take his two kids along and turn it into a vacation. Soon the children find out that their vacation has turned into an adventure! Brendan and his sister Lizzie find themselves making friends with Dorian, the daughter of the king of leprechauns. When Dorian's father the king of leprechauns is kidnapped by a witch trying to steal magical beings powers, Brendan soon offers to help rescue him. Brendan finds himself smitten by Dorian and a romance blooms soon on their adventure. There are many other fun and magical creatures throughout this book. Brendan also discovers there is much more to himself then he ever knew and the book leaves it to where you know more adventures await in store for these characters. I recommend this book to young middle school aged children. I enjoyed this book and appreciated winning it. I look forward to seeing what else author Brad A. LaMar has in store for us!

If you're looking for a fast paced, engaging read filled with colorful characters and a mystical setting, then The Obsidian Dagger is for you! As a middle school Language Arts teacher, my students are really excited about this book! They enjoy the exciting story and the descriptive language. I know they're eagerly awaiting number two in the series! Writing a book that grabs and engages young people is no small task, well done Brad LaMar!

The storyline was so predictable and just not believable. American teens travel with single dad to Ireland. Dad leaves them on their own with a car for a couple of days while he catches a ride with a stranger to another city for some research. So not going to happen. The writing was choppy and in dire need of a good editor. This author firmly believes in commas whether they are needed or not. I made myself read the entire book, even though I kept setting it down because the story was just not there. WIsh I hadn't because it just didn't get any better. I LOVE a good story about leprechauns and wicked witches - this just wasn't it.

I like clean stories with virtuous characters. This story meets those requirements, and I wanted to give this book a try because of the Celtic connections. The plot is somewhat interesting, but is too simple for my taste. A few times I thought about not bothering to come back to the book, but in the end the plot was compelling enough to make me come back to see what happened next. I am almost certain that I won't be reading the sequel.

From what I can tell (and I am no expert) this book is written at a level that middle school students will find easy to read while providing them with an entertaining and age appropriate tale. The writing is simple enough that some struggling readers might be able to get through it and be encouraged to pursue a love of reading.

Unless you want to share the story with a younger person (or you are a younger person), I would look elsewhere for good fantasy reading.

Have you ever read a book slow, not because it was bad but because you just didn't want it to end? The Obsidian Dagger by Brad LaMar was one of those books to me. It follows Brendan and Lizzie along with their father Oscar as they travel to Ireland to find out about their family history, that is until things get a little crazy and they have to defeat an evil witch. It was a fun, exciting, fast paced adventure with a touch of humor. The banter between Brendan and Lizzie was so true to life, I can picture my kids being the same way when they are their age. Even when the story gets a little "unbelievable" the characters question or point out everything giving this book a "real" feel. Their travel companions Dorian, Rory and Bibby are such love-able character. Morna and Dullaghan were awesome evil. I loved the writing style as the story was told by all the characters not just thru the eyes of one. The only thing I thought the story could use was a bit more description of the world or surroundings just to give that I feel like I was there feeling. Other then that I would recommend this book to any middle grade, ya or adult who like a good modern day fantasy, taking myth and legend and giving it new life. I'm happy to be able to add this book to my favorites list and I can not wait for the next book!!! Happy reading :)
