I don't like spoilers in book reviews, but to all moms who are trying to find a book series their son might like... look no further. My son, a mature 12-year-old, reads these so fast and immediately looks up the next book! Books my son enjoys reading are few and far between. This is his favorite book series he has ever read; so much so, that he asked if I would start reading them with him. Now I am hooked!
This series has great character development, few slow parts, good moral lessons on loyalty and friendship, and is packed with action and adventure.
I highly recommend the entire series to 5th grade and up (from a teacher/ mom's perspective).
