Publisher's Summary

This is the first book in a spellbinding fantasy adventure series so believable you may wonder if it's happening in your own backyard.

"As Arlo looked around, the walls of his room began to vanish, revealing a moonlit forest. Only his bed remained and the frame of his window, through which he saw the girl. The world on her side of the glass was sparkling with silver and gold, like a palace made of autumn leaves. She looked off to her right. Someone was coming. Her words came in an urgent whisper: 'If I can see you, they can see you. You're in danger. Be careful, Arlo Finch.'"

Arlo Finch is a newcomer to Pine Mountain, Colorado, a tiny town of mystery and magic, but he has already attracted the attention of dark and ancient forces. At first he thinks these increasingly strange and frightening occurrences are just part of being in Rangers, the mountain scouting troop where he learns how to harness the wild magic seeping in from the mysterious Long Woods. But soon Arlo finds himself at the center of a dangerous adventure, where he faces obstacles that test the foundations of the Ranger's Vow: Loyalty, Bravery, Kindness, and Truth.

Excellent

Picked this up after listening to Launch, the podcast chronicling it’s creation. The story does not disappoint. Well-paced magical adventure set in the mountains of Colorado.

Fantastic book-also, great Podcast

LOVE this! I purchased a hard copy from a local bookstore (supporting small business is cool) but I also used a credit to listen on audible. I'm giving the hardback to my 11yo for him to read. I know he will love it and we will be able to chat about it!!

Exciting, Can’t Wait for Sequel!! Loved it!

Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire is a Great story that is fast-paced but still develops the characters &plot in deep & exciting ways. I can’t believe I have to wait a year for the next book! - but I’ll re-read this one & urge my friends to read it too.
It’s aimed at middle grade - kids who liked the Percy Jackson Series & similar books, but as an adult I loved it because it has the “old school” days of camping, scouts, & family merged with fantasy & magic. Really Fun!

My biggest binge ever!

Where does Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Really really good narrator for this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This is the only book I have ever been able to listen to all at once.

Perfect for a car journey or plane ride!

I loved this book - would have adored it as a kid and ate it up as a 27 year old. It kept me totally distracted on a long flight and car journey. Can't wait for the next one.

A great adventure series in the making.

Listened to this with my 13 year old son on a long road trip and it was perfect. Getting to know Arlo, his family and friends was a joy. Familiar, yet fresh. Humorous and imaginative. Looking forward to this series growing. My son, a critic of few words, thought it was great. His father concurred.
