I would have liked to have my middle graders read this one too so they could also tell me if they like it – but I got it as a PDF and they don’t have eReaders.
So, the author contacted me and asked that I review the book. I’m always happy to read something new and to support other authors – so I agreed.
I like to read middle grade stories (see today’s review of Candy Shop War), but I’m not necessarily a good judge of whether the book would be good for the intended audience.
I liked the story and the anachronisms (they are purposeful).
The main character, Andy, was likable and believable.
This is the first book in a series and the way the author ended this one makes sense and offers a bit of closure as well. But, the overall quest is still a long way from being completed.
I think that middle-grade readers will enjoy this story.
