Publisher's Summary

What are the mysterious lights flitting above Oregon's Oswego Lake on moonlit nights? Marsh gas? Ball lightning? Holdovers from the dawn of Creation? Or not-so-mythical creatures slinking in the shadows of half-remembered Scottish legends? When young Jonathan Oliver makes it his personal project to track down the source of the elusive Lake Lights, his search takes him to Iron Mountain’s abandoned Prosser Mine and its whispered, age-old secrets. 

After his brilliant physicist father is kidnapped by Taliban insurgents in the wilds of Afghanistan, a grieving Jon is left to decode a cryptic message leading to yet more mysteries and a remarkable, game-changing invention. While Jon and his grandfather concoct their own contraption to explore the Prosser Mine, they must also match wits with a devious, unscrupulous scientist who will stop at nothing to steal the device Jon has found and sell it to a shadowy criminal organization. Jon’s dual discoveries not only help him to deliver his city from total annihilation but also ultimately rock the scientific world to its very foundations.

My children love it! 🥜📘

14-year-old Ruth Anne says: “A teenage boy...peanut butter...and strange occurrences in and under Iron Mountain. The Lake Lights is a tale sure to interest any boy or girl! The narration is superb and the storyline was still as good as when I first read it.”

12-year-old Mary Kate says: “I liked The Lake Lights because the characters are strong and well-written. I liked the futuristic prologue. I am really excited for the next book!”

10-year-old Daniel says: “The Lake Lights has amazing characters, an awesome plot, and a good narrator.”

6-year-old Sara says: "I didn't think I would like The Lake Lights at first...but at the end I discovered I really liked it. My favorite character is Grandpa Roberts. I love the first book and I'm expecting I'll love the next book, too, when it's on Audible."

A great read!

This is a great story. I love the detail in the storytelling, and Newbold does a great job narrating. Being from Oregon, it’s also very fun to have a story that takes place in my state!
