Aimee | 1 comments My niece is an amazingly smart 8 year old with a 9th grad reading level. And this kid can read so fast! She read the first Harry Potter book in one day. We're struggling to find books that challenge her reading level but are age appropriate. Most books that are age appropriate she reads in an hour or two. Any recommendations for single books or series would be greatly appreciated!

Kristin Vincent (kristinkitty) Eraden Tales and the Sword of Black Light by Kristin Vincent

Covered in thick forests, bright rivers and tall mountains of brown or white, the world of Eraden is a place touched by magic - and here in a forest far to the west, lived a young man by the name of Cadfayel.

It all started with the sword his grandfather had given to him so many years back. Only in recent days, something strange had come over that blade. Streaks of dark gray ran across the once white blade. Why this was? The boy wouldn't stop until he found out. And he would; and with it begins what would be the boy's destiny: The quest to restore the blade that is Eraden's strength and battle the one who sought Eraden's conquest hundreds of years ago.

Along the way, Cadfayel will meet new friends and allies such as a cheery dwarf, an obnoxious little goblin, a mysterious dark elf, the most nervous diplomat the lands had ever seen, a swordsman with a hidden past, and an adventurous, brave-hearted girl called Tenri. Friends and plenty of enemies as well; one who is none other than the dark East King himself and his army behind him.

Join Cadfayel and his friends as they set off through forests, up towering mountains, deep within an ancient maze - fighting against those who desire nothing more than to blot out the future's light - to ensure Eraden's future and freedom.

Aimee a great book is Eragon if she hasnt read it yet, but the maturaty of it i think she needs to b a little older. Sixth grade maybe. Not the reading level the maturity level.

Maryam | 1120 comments Fablehaven or The Land Of Stories, will maybe suit her.

Lottie Berinson | 121 comments I'd say ferals by Jacob Grey. Or maybe cat Royal by Julia Golding. School of good and evil is also a good one. Possibly even Obernewtyn.
