By ellen VINE VOICE on November 8, 2010
Format: Kindle Edition
Edward C. Patterson is one of my favorite authors. Not only in his prolific writing and varied subject books, but for my favorite series, The Jade Owl series.

I must tell you, if you delve into this series, it is a commitment. Each of the four books in print and Kindle are over 600 pages. But reading each book will keep you up late into the night reading and marveling the imagination and magic and knowledge Patterson has.

The People's Treasure takes up with Rose still in New York with the banners they China Hands have found, to be in a major exhibit, and all of the characters are taken back when the predictions that three ladies tell of the prophecy that the People's Treasure will be found to redeem the promise the Jade Owl started - to awaken the living and the dead.

My favorite character Nicky Battle is still stuck in somewhere and perhaps can be resurrected if the right combination of China relics can be created.

That little green Owl is still hooting and seems to be directing the show, both in present as well as past, and it becomes apparent the gang Rowdy, Rose, Simone, the Dragon Riders, etc. have to go back and try to get the missing coin that will fill the mystery and try to get Nicky back.

In China, Sydney Firestone, with his wife and child, are holding their family's area as safely as they can, but something strange is happening to Sydney...and Nicky Firestone, Sydney's son, seems to want to join his father in the adventure, and he's a newcomer to watch!

The Triangulations, or images used from the ancient relics with the ancient banners, are the most spectacular of the entire series. To read those passages many times for me will not lesson their power.

A very poignant moment between Simone and Nicky Battle (?

This is a well written book. It has action, deviousness, mystery and romance. I had to force myself to put it down. I took my time reading it and absorbing everything. At times I felt like I was in China. A very good read. I am reading the second book and it is just as good as the first. I totally recommend it.

In the fourth book in the series, the adventure starts again and continues over two continents. Determined to get Nick back, everyone joins together,despite setbacks in their own lives. In both the US and China more and more pieces of the great Jade Owl puzzle come together. A portal is found in both continents and the story continues. Definitely, a story worth reading.
