Outstanding Read! Strongly Recommend to ALL readers!

I've read several of the Victoria Laurie books geared toward adult readers, so I was a bit surprised to see that she had written a book directed at 5th-8th grade readers. I honestly couldn't imagine an author making a successful transition from what she normally writes, to children's' fiction. Oh boy was I wrong!!!! For starters, I read all the reviews on this book I could find and I was *really* aggravated! Several reviewers had compared this book to the Harry Potter series. That irritated me because there's just no way, I thought, that a reader going into this book with the mindset that it could be compared to Rowling's books would come away satisfied. I was prepared to - if not dislike it - at least be terribly disappointed. This book was nothing short of FANTASTIC! Intertwining sorcery, magic and the gift of "sight," Laurie tells a fantastic story of two orphans on the run for their lives after discovering a treasure box in an abandoned cave. As an adult, I was holding my breath and sitting on the edge of my seat within the first 20 pages. It was that good. Is it as good as the Harry Potter books? I think it's a terrible mistake to compare one book loved by so many to another; however, I will say that there are many wonderful similarities and I'm excited to read the rest of the series. I think it would be fantastic to see this book be made into a movie. A note to readers: I bought this book online, but went to my local B&N to purchase the rest of the series. I was DEVASTATED to realize that they didn't have a single one in stock, and not because they were sold out! They simply hadn't chosen to stock this book for reasons of their own. I was able to talk them into stocking one copy of each book to see how it went for sales. You might call your B&N first if you intend to walk into the store to purchase this book.

    Good read

    A good nbook in general, but a bit close to the Harry Potter series in terms of characters and the adventures they go on.
