When Ethan looks out onto his neighbour's roof top and finds an old stick staring back at him; little does he expect it to change his life forever.

In fact, Mentor Immortalis is no ordinary stick and this is no ordinary tale. But what does a boy, a stick and a parchment have in common?

...A lot more than you think!

I received, The Parchment, as a first read giveaway from Goodreads. For her own son, Sketa writes a fantasy, dreamlike, storytelling adventure; think Alice in Wonderland meets Deepak Chopra. Mrs. Hobbs, a.k.a. Mum, and her son, Ethan travel from Australia to the UK for him to sit his college entrance exam in Scotland. With the use of riddles, imagination and fantasy characters to pull you into each adventure, this is a fast read. You go whirling along on an illusionary ride with Ethan through ta ...more

Hi, I am a fan of the Parchment series. The Parchment is a magical, mysterious series that keeps me on the edge of my seat. It has a good humour, adventure and friendship. I reckon this is a good book that everyone should read, not matter their age or interest. Happy reading, Markus

This "new" book is for young adult, maybe middle school aged readers. The story itself was good. However... there was a lot of swearing in it. It had adults and the main character, a boy, cursing also. It was needless and really distracting! I would not recommend if I were a teacher and I would not want my own kids reading it, simply because of the language. IT REALLY COULD BE A GOOD STORY, IT IS THE FIRST IN A SERIES I HOPE SKETA "CLEANS" IT UP A BIT.
