Publisher's Summary

Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don't read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn't around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar. Welcome to Cragbridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twins Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather's inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins must follow a mysterious trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must find out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge Hall. Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fierce adversary to discover their grandfather's greatest secret - a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.

    Story
    "A Sci Fi Harry Potter ?"
    If you could sum up Cragbridge Hall, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

    Light, historical & entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cragbridge Hall, Book 1?

    When a character is mauled by a bear in what proves to be a very realistic simulator.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The characters experience with 'driving' the avatar, while climbing into the watchtower.


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

    Almost managed it, an afternoon and the following morning while in the workshop. I actually used this book as a successful sorbet to remove the experience of a less well written and performed novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll definitely be following the characters in the sequel.

    Story
    "A Mystery in the School of the Future"

    Wow! This book was really well done. As an avid reader, a book must pull me into the story to draw real emotions from me. This story did just that! I actually laughed out loud during funny scenes, my heart sped up when situations became tense, and had actual tears when the scene was emotional.

    Although the main characters are middle school students, who live 60 years in the future, the story is not juvenile in the way it is written. A set of twins have to use all the invented resources available to them as well as their own ingenuity to locate and save their parents and grandpa and, while doing so, the world of course. The school they attend is full of state of the art virtual reality "type" inventions used as interactive learning tools.

    The narration by Kirby Heyborne is excellent. His ability to bring the characters alive while using a variety of accents, tones, and voices is fantastic. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy or science fiction. I'm on my way to purchase the next in the series.

    "would make a great tv mini series!"

    It was such a fun listen. The narrator was amazing. I seriously hope that someone in the tv production field would take a look at this. Looking forward to the next two books.
