Review by: Cynthia Oteri on Aug. 15, 2013 :
I have never read any of J. L. Hickey's work and boy, have I been missing out! This book was wonderful! As a child, I grew up reading a variety of books including the Chronicles of Narnia. Thie book somewhat reminded me of those stories. This was a magical tale of two recently orphaned children who start a new like in a mysterious manor and embark on a magical journey filled with mystical creatures and adventure. Hunter and Elly's characters pull you into their mariad of emotions throughout the story. The incredible imagery in this story truly brings this story to life. We follow Hunter and Elly through an emotional roller coaster ride starting with despair and fear of the unknown. The story slowly allows the children to reclaim some sort of family and allows them to regain their happiness. The challenges they face through the adventures in this book allow them to grow and begin to understand how decisions can impact their lives. This book is a great read for both adults and children. Highly reccomend!

** This book was given to me by the author in exchange for a fair and impartial review.

Review by: Vera Burgess on Aug. 4, 2013 :
What was really fun as an adult reading this book was that I could enjoy it at so many paralleling age levels. I could more easily associate with the young female characters in this book than in many other books I've read within the same genre. Hickey's writing style emphasizes small personality quirks in the main characters that make them entirely relatable. I felt that it held mysteries for all ages to discover through the coming texts, taking place in a world of magic that felt more real than in other books because the story is based around creatures and phenomena that actually baffles current science. Good job to Hickey for trying to open up kids minds to questioning their world.

This book drew me in as soon as I finished the first chapter. I am very familiar with Mr. Hickey's work and have been following him since his first book. This had a great mix of fantasy, the real life tones of losing loved ones, and being forced with heavy responsibility some times at a young age. I look at this story not only as a good book series, but something I could watch on the big screen as well. Someone get the word out, this book deserves the exposure. I can't wait for the next one.

What a fantastic book!! I started reading it and just couldn't put it down. From the description I didn't really think I would enjoy this one but boy was I surprised! It is marked as YA and I promise you even people in their 30's will enjoy this one. It will draw you in from the very beginning.

I highly recommend this

I didn't expect to get so into the book, seeing as it was children's fantasy, but man, it really did suck me in. I really felt all the emotions the children went through, and felt their excitement as they learn about their new family and life as Seekers. Fits the mood of Harry Potter and Series of Unfortunate Events. My only complaint is how abruptly it ends, but I suppose that just makes me want more!
