I’ve read several of Michael’s books and have always enjoyed them. This one was no exception. In fact, I think it is my favorite thus far. Not only does it tell a great story, but it also teaches some good values for not only middle-grade readers, but for us old fogies who read it, too. While I was in the midst of this book, I found myself, just like Rich, looking for opportunities to serve and help others.
I’m also a sucker for superhero stories. This one isn’t one exactly, but each time Rich succeeded in one of his smaller quests, he gained new abilities to help him. None of them are super strength or flying, but still cool powers to have.
Something I’ve liked about all of Michael’s books I’ve read is that he comes up with new twists in his world-building. They are not your typical medieval-style fantasy settings with all the same old monsters. In this book, there is traveling into and out of a painting. I won’t tell you more than that, though.
I highly recommend this book for readers, both young and young-at-heart. It is totally clean and possesses a great moral that everybody could use a refresher course on. The only thing that was a little confusing to me was that the book suddenly ended without finishing the story arc.Read more ›
The characters are well rounded with strengths and weaknesses and very little info dump. You can get to know the characters as they get to know themselves. Rich is especially well crafted.
There are lots of twists and turns to figure out who is a good guy, who is a bad guy and who just may be an innocent bystander caught in the cross fire.
The dialogue is suited for the age group and will make a fairly easy and fast read for the intended audience.
My only real hangup is the structure of the ending. It happens in an odd place for me. I dearly hope there is a sequel/series to finish out this tantalizing story and answer all my questions. In other words, I want more.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Anxious for him to find his cause.
