This was a fabulous book. My 10 (now 11) year old loved every second of it and I have to say, so did I. He is a "reluctant reader" who preferred non-fiction books to anything else. Now he says he loves fantasy books and it's because of this well-written, funny, exciting, "non-stop action with surprising turns on every page" book. We couldn't wait to read what was next every night.
My son has been anxiously waiting for the sequel(s) and I sincerely hope the author keeps on writing them and never runs out of interesting ideas! What a great book. Truly, this was as interesting for me as it was for him!
