    This is more of a young person's book then a book for adults.

    This book is about two boys. They are cousins, one is 13, the other is 14. They are left on their own, through no fault of their own and have the adventure of their life. This book is one of series. This one was free. I am not sure about the others. It is primarily set in Wales and the speech patterns reflect this. It is more a YA book then an adult book. While I did enjoy reading a different type of mystery, it was a bit juvenile for me. The editing was better then most free books. There is some mild violence, in this almost 300 page book. It is action filled and there is a lot of suspense. The story fully embraces the boys' Celtic heritage. I found some of the events a bit unbeleavable. I would recommend this novel for readers, age13-17.

    Good

    Lost treasure, villians, Excalibur and two teenage heroes. What's not there to send you on a rollicking good quest? Really enjoyed the story and look forward to the next adventure.
