The history of the gazing ball catches up with Lottie and her family. An ancient band of assassins, the Malignigh, endeavor to steal the sphere and return it to the Brotherhood of the Dragon. Rudolph, a handsome but deadly wizard, leads the Malignigh and the Brotherhood in their nefarious attempts to regain the gazing ball.
Lottie's adventure takes her and her family through the wilds of the Berkshire Hills to a place deep in the dead woods of Dark Ridge.
In her quest to confront the evil of Rudolph and that of the Malignigh, Lottie finds her powers and that of the ball have gotten stronger. She, also, finds new allies and some one who she thought had been lost to her forever.

With twentieth century language set in a bygone era, Richard Lewis manages to convey an other world fantasy complete with magic, heroes, friends and evildoers. Lottie, the keeper of The Amazing Gazing Ball, leads us on an adventure, a journey into the unknown realms of good and evil where she not only confronts her own worst fears, but also explores the nature of innocent love. This memorable tale has something to reveal to children of all ages and will make excellent bedtime story telling because the chapters are brief and keep the suspense moving. Mr. Lewis's vivid imagination will leave children wide-eyed and wanting more. It cleverly compels one's own imagination without bogging us down in detail. The kids I've tested it on give it a thumbs up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
