Well written and narrated. The characters are engaging and the storyline keeps you hooked. I look forward to the continuation of this series by Richard Paul Evans!
My 11 year old son devoured the book and then pleaded for the audio book to listen to as he falls asleep at night!
Waiting for the next one.
I'm an adult who loves stories in this genre. It has been a while since I found anything really enjoyable and I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It was very entertaining, well written, and not too juvenile. I eagerly await the next one!
For me it was a little slow to start but you got to know the kids before it went to the "drama/action " part, and these kids were not perfect. Did think adding tourettes to the "little" picked on kid was overkill, just his size alone made him a target. But the story carried itself well and was pretty good.
I would listen to this book again because I so enjoyed that basic good vs. evil theme...I loved that the characters were flawed and you loved them anyway.
Definitely a must for a Harry Potter fan
I would love to tell you my favorite part but I don't want to ruin it for you.
Great book for kids and adults. Characters with real flaws and handicaps and you love them. Issues like bullying addressed with outcomes you will love. The main characters have a good value system that you want your kid reading about.
What I like most is that I can recommend this story to my mom, my teenage sons, my husband, my girlfriends, anyone... absolutely anyone. And they ALL loved it. How many authors can write books like that? very very few. The quality of the narrator makes you think you are watching a movie. Of course, the well written story helps, but it's the narrator that makes you drive around the block a couple of extra times just because you don't want to shut it off when you are driving in your car.
This is a great book and it's going to be a big hit with the middle school population. I heard about it and had to get it right away. I was lost in Michael Vey's world for the 3 days I was listening to the audible book and I'm still thinking about it. Great read.
I got this book and started listening right away. I finished it in just two days. I got so much work done because I didn't want to stop listening. It was my reward for sticking to my 'to do' list. I liked how the characters interacted. It was nice to see them act in unpredictable and ingenious ways. I like YA fiction, but so much of it is dysfunctional and filled with foul language. This was a refreshing change and I can't wait to read/listen to the rest of the series.
This was a good story and should be worth your time. The reader was a bit grating - definitely NOT a Scott Brick - but I have heard worse, and this one didn't make me turn off the story. This is all in all a good story. You will should like it. I look forward to the next book...
