There is a battle between right and wrong and Daniel and Aidan decide to try and do something about it. Their journey is riddled with hardships and battles, that they win but sometimes at a heavy cost. I like the point the author brings out with two of the characters that not everyone is suited to fight but still can make a difference with their help and support.
I don't have any children still at home but if they were I would not hesitate to encourage them to read this series. In fact I will anyway, I think anyone, young or not so young will enjoy it.
14-year-old Daniel is about to be taken away to work in the slave camps of the evil King Argyle. His parents, along with most other parents, were captured years earlier. Daniel and his younger brother Aidan have had to fend for themselves. While Daniel waits for the bad guys to come for him, brother Aidan hatches a plan. Both Aidan and Daniel have unique gifts as the result of a disease that is sometimes fatal and sometimes leaves the survivors with a very special talent. Aidan has the ability to commune with and transform into the animals of the forest. Daniel can run extremely fast. Between the two of them, and with a little help from Aidan's animal friends, they battle Argyle's minions who come for Daniel. The two brothers also befriend sisters, Olivia and Lilly. The four children decide that they're going to try to take on Argyle's army. They eventually rescue another boy and his little brother to join them on their adventure.
Mr. Collins has created a wonderful world populated with fairies and tree gnomes and werewolves, and even the occasional unicorn and dragon. The forest and the magical creatures are richly described, as are the nuanced relationships between the brothers and their new friends. Collins is a talented writer and storyteller, and Scepter is the start of what promises to be a delightful middle grade adventure series. The story played out in my mind like a Disney or Pixar-animated musical complete with thrilling chase scenes, beautiful scenery, and touching moments between the characters.
