It was a good book

It was a good book I read it in less than 1 hour I read it over and over again

Gripping, creative, and hopeful

Very clear lines of good and evil. Too many descriptions of evil for my taste, so I skipped over a few when reading aloud. My son thoroughly enjoyed the book and is excited for the next one.

I'm not in the age group that this book is aimed at, but I do teach 8 and 9 year olds, so read a great many books aimed at them. It's a shame that this book had quite a few problems, because in many ways the writing wasn't bad and I did want to finish the adventure, so bought the next two books - which leads me to my first complaint.

The book is really only a third of a book. I understand why the author has done this - to sell more - but it was a bit annoying and I felt slightly short-changed.

I have actually met Jasper Cooper in person and have the trilogy of books with his name signed in them. A very typical plot of a dark wizard wanting to take over the kingdom. Very good vocab. Would recommend for ages 10+

As much as I love it, this time I found I didn't enjoy it as much as the last time.
