Something was coming. Arlo felt certain about that. For Arlo Finch and the Rangers of Pine Mountain Company, summer camp is more than canoeing and hiking. It's also a chance to search for ancient forest spirits and discover mysterious messages encoded in tree bark. But when Arlo and his best friends Indra and Wu stumble upon clues about the long-lost Yellow Patrol, Arlo uncovers a stunning history that leads right back to his very own family.

I was aware of this book due to my Jim Dale fandom and trying to find more things that scratched my HP itch. Stoneheart was such a fun read. A fun world to explore with fun, interesting characters. Jim Dale’s delivery was exquisite again. Dang that man is talented.

I’ve enjoyed Brandon’s work ever since I “picked up” the Stormlight Archive. His work is fantastic fantasy, delicious reads. Skyward had me intrigued, a nudge into a different genre but what an awesome ride. The characters feel real and you really want to cheer for Spin, the protagonist. The world is complicated and simple in all the right ways. I’m excited to follow this new series. Cheers Mr. Sanderson.

Ben and Honoree have treated the indie author scene to a concise conglomerate of fantastic insider information. What holes they left in their analysis and advise they filled with ample resources for more research. A great read for any indie author wanting to level up their writing, publishing, and marketing game. Thank you for the wonderful resource. I will be reviewing the content often.

Brandon Mull has been one of my favorite authors to follow since I succumbed to recommendation pressures with his first series, Fablehaven. The Five Kingdoms is a delicious feast of visual storytelling excellence. The characters feel real, the realm of the five kingdoms is well-designed, and the adventure keeps you engaged in paralyzing anticipation. Thank you Brandon Mull for another exciting world to explore. Read the book, find happiness.
