There were lots of things I liked about this book.
Firstly, it's set in Michigan. Well, the modern portions at least. I have a little bit of a bias towards the Mitten State :) I also really liked how Sarah wove the modern and medieval portions together. Seeing each time period through the other's eyes was a neat way to explore the differences.
Sarah incorporated several lessons into the book and was able to avoid sounding preachy. Family, loyalty, pride, forgiveness, jealousy, worth, identity, dealing with enemies... those are the obvious ones. There are probably ones I've forgotten.
Braden and Jamie's adventures are really neat and you learn some history in the process. I learned lots of things that I didn't know about medieval times. Again, Sarah presents the information in a way that doesn't feel like an information dump.
Then there is the relationship between the brothers themselves. So many books have siblings that are at odds with each other, or at the very least are not close. Braden is a good big brother to Jamie.
I almost wish we could have seen more of Uncle George. He seems like a cool secondary character, but since most of the book is set in medieval times, there wasn't much room for him.
