    Not bad-A worthy Harry Potter fan read

    The deal is, I liked Harry Potter. I thought J.K. Rowling brought a certain darkness to children's literature. Ms. Kingsley however, shows the Harry Potteresque type of underworld written in this series and keeps it a bit more upbeat. While I noticed several "similarities" between the title character/heroes (i.e. Erec's hair and best friends) I was still taken in by Erec Rex like it was my first time ever wandering a new world of magic and make believe. In this world of vast kingdoms, magic, fantastical creatures, and such you really find a sense of home, even if it's not your own. It makes people aware that the world is losing it's magic because of what humans are doing to it. All in all, I would recommend this to any child over fourth grade who liked Harry Potter or just like the idea that you are more than you could have ever dreamed you were.

    This is a very fun book! There is mystery, magic, danger, advent

    This is a very fun book! There is mystery, magic, danger, adventure, friendship, and family. It is geared slightly more towards younger readers; however, I found this a rather enjoyable read with the promise of fun future adventures.

    A New Entry in the World of Young Adult Fiction

    Erec Rex is a 12 year old boy who has been living in a non-magical world, when he was actually born in a magical world. Sound familiar? Well, this is where the similarities between Erec Rex and Harry Potter end. For all those clamoring for a new fantasy series to read after the ending of Harry Potter, then look no further - Kaza Kingsley has given us a unique and interesting take on the world of magic.<BR/><BR/>Erec unknowingly enters the magical world of the Kingdom of the Keepers while searching for his mother. Erec has an unusual gift - the dark thoughts. When the dark thoughts take over Erec's mind, he must do what they say. When the dark thoughts tell him to go in search of his mother, he encounters a new friend, Bethany, who helps him search for his mother.<BR/><BR/>Erec soon finds himself in a tournament to become one of the new rulers of the Kingdom of the Keepers. The current rulers are King Piter, King Pluto and Queen Posey - but King Piter has been ill for over 10 years. It was King Piter's own children - triplets - who were to be the new rulers, but they mysteriously died as babies.<BR/><BR/>People are not always what they appear to be in the uniquely different world of magic and mayhem. Allies become enemies and enemies turn out to be friendly - it is unclear whom to trust in this newly created world.<BR/><BR/>This books gives you many unusual new items and animals, as well as magical devices:<BR/><BR/>Magical seeing eyeglasses - let you see the person you miss the most.<BR/>Cloudsicles - yummy snacks to eat.<BR/>Aniballs - different colored balls which turn into animals.<BR/>Inquizzles - will answer one question for you.<BR/>Nitrowisherine - a liquid that explodes, then grants a wish.<BR/><BR/>This is a wonderful new series for young adults, and adults who are young at heart. The second book in the series is The Monsters of the Otherness. The third book - The Search for the Truth - will be released this summer.

    Erec Rex poised to take over?

    Charaters similar to another popular fictional book. It will keep your interest. I met the author the other night, she has an eight book agenda set.
