I finished this book in a matter of days, drawn in by the descriptive land of Tanniyn and its captivating characters. I recommend this adventure novel to middle and high school students alike.
Jack is an orphan who has visions and has a secret memory that the evil emperor Morogh wants. Molly is a companion of Jack who tries to be tough when others need it. Fletcher is a mysterious man, locked away and set free by Jack. Morogh is the villain in this book that sent soldiers after Jack and Molly.
I like how the story of Gideon appears in Jack's visions and teaches him how to be a hero. I also like how much feeling is portrayed in Thrones. This book has a medieval theme and a lot of exploring Tanniyin, the kingdom. There are a lot of vicious monsters in Thrones. They make the quest harder for Jack and Molly.
Altogether, Thrones is a great book to read because the plot changes a lot, due to traitorous attempts scattered throughout this novel. The next book seems to have a lot in store for us!
