    An Adrenalin Rush!

    This is a remarkable tale of a young man capable of thinking for himself. He is loyal to his friends and takes actions to defend them if they have been wronged.
    I think there is 'a little bit of Jack' in all of us.

    good read, but not up to Wilson's norm

    It was a good book. I've been looking forward to the next installment of the Repairman Jack series. I was disappointed to find this was an adventure of young Jack, when he was only about 13 y/o.

    If you're looking for a typical Wilson book, go elsewhere. If you're looking for a decent read, along the lines of a teen adventure then this is for you

    Courtesy of Flamingnet.com Teen Book Reviews-good novel

    Ever since Jack first discovered the pyramid,
    nothing has been the same for Jack or the town of Johnson. A chain of
    unexplained murders fire up the suspicion against the Lodge
    - a secret society that was the first to settle in Johnson.
    In Jack: Secret Circles, things have begun to simmer down
    since the murders. That is until Cody disappears. Jack had
    seen Cody ride home, but didn't make sure he got there. Now
    Cody has disappeared and chaos is aroused in Johnson. Once
    again, the Lodge and pyramid is linked to all this. Along
    with that, Mr. Vivino is abusing his family and no one
    knowsabout it. Now, Jack must find a way to save Cody, Mrs. V,
    and her daughter. But since Jack is dealing with a secret
    society and a man running for public office, things won't
    be solved very easily.

    As the mystery began to unfold, I
    picked up interest. The beginning of the novel was slow and
    seemed to go on forever. But as new twists changed the
    course of the story, the suspense began to increase. One
    example of a twist is when Cody goes missing. From there,
    things begin to heat up and new secrets are discovered when
    Jack and Weezy go looking in the Lodge. But the secrets are
    found gradually and over a long period of time. Sometimes
    the discovery of one secret would happen long before the
    next. For this, I wouldn't say this novel is a page-turner.
    I think it is more of a book that slowly increases suspense
    as you read into it. I recommend this book to any who is
    willing to read to the middle of the book before actually
    getting to the climax. Jack: Secret Circles is a good
    novel, but it isn't amazingly exciting.

    super Repairman roots

    A teenage "Repairman" Jack is on his way to his friend Weezy's house when he sees five year old Cody Bockman riding his bicycle near the Barriers, an area that is filled with strange things. Jack tells Cody to go home as the child is to young to be so far from his home. He watched the child to insure he is heading towards home. Jack and Weezy enter the Barrens, a land mass that is eerie and filled with strange creatures. They find a giant stone pyramid with the same identical markings that was on as a smaller pyramid they found and lost last month.

    A stranger went into the Barriers only to lose his way and he was unable to escape for a few days. He tells the teens of a creature that was following him so he hid in a tree. They get him out, but Cody is missing. A search leads to Cody's bike in the Barrens; a search there proves fruitless. Weezy convinces Jack to break into the building of the mysterious Ancient Septimus Fraternal Order to retrieve the little pyramid that Jack thought he saw on the mantle. When they break in, the duo meets much more than they expected.

    Readers of the Repairman Jack saga will learn how it all began when the hero was a teen. Targeted for young adults (as was the Secret Histories) fans of all ages will appreciate Secret Circles especially if they want to know Jack. He has dealt with the supernatural and unexplained as a teenager so the teen became the adult still fighting as a warrior for the Light. As Jack adapts to whatever cause he must face, his readers will relish observing his Repairman roots.
