My sons loved this book. It reminded us a great deal of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series. It was funny with nothing inappropriate. We can't wait for the next one.

I thought this book was pretty awesome. How would you take it, if while trying to grab a hamburger, a girl grabs it first and then out of NOWHERE the floor cracks and they fall into a huge cavern? And then meet their personal guardian angels, are told of their role in a mission. Yeah, it is like the whole world is inside out and upside down.
They even get to visit heaven -- on the "STAFF" side. The other side is for "residents" and that is more permanent than a couple of teens are ready for.
Their mission is to re-light the sword of Findul. Fundul is an angel who hasn't been seen in a long, long time. On the chase are some REALLY bad guys looking for Findul to control the flame.
The adventures are full of emotional realities from both adventurers and their angels. It feels more real this way. The tribulations they face bring out qualities they did not even know they had-- and insecurities, too.
On the other hand, did I mention GADGETS: A whole world of wonderful gadgets. Which they need, because when angels have enemies, you better believe the enemies are BIG TROUBLE.
