My daughter and I read this book together. I gave it four stars and she gave it five. This is a good mystery and the story keeps you on your toes. My daughters review: I liked the book because mystery is my favorite genre and I liked it at the end when JB, Noelle and Edward realize their part of the curse.

Very cool book for young adults! J.B. is a typical young man until he starts to have visions and can't figure out why they are occurring. Turns out he is cursed by the Granville Fortune that was stolen, and his entire family is cursed because his ancestor was accused of it. So he sets out on a journey through a dark forest with all kinds of danger, and when he meets others who have been having the same visions they continue the journey together to try and discover the truth. It is a thrilling ...more

THE REVIEW

Why this book?
My sister entered a blog tour for me because she thought i'll be interested

What I thought

This book was a fast paced read that I enjoyed. The Creepy fear inducing forest was an interesting concept, and the search for the fortune kept me interested. Though at times the story dragged a little I was intrigued enough to read this in one setting.

If you'll looking for a fast paced adventure this book is for you

Kelly Hashway has a true talent for middle grade action. The story pulls you in and keeps going throughout, with not a single dull moment from beginning to end. Best of all, the young people in the story don't rely on adults to save them. They're true heroes. This is a great read that I recommend to anyone looking for a great middle grade read!

Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didnt stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stines Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative ...more
