E.G. FOLEY is the pen name for a husband-and-wife writing team who live in Pennsylvania. They have been finishing each other's sentences since they were teens, so it was only a matter of time until they were writing together, too.

"E" is a 7th-8th grade teacher of students who regularly use more than 10% of their brains, world traveler, ice cream connoisseur, and martial arts enthusiast. "G" loves big books and small fluffy creatures, and if she hadn't become a writer, would have pursued a career as either a princess or a spy - or possibly both. With millions of copies of her nineteen adult novels from Random House and HarperCollins sold in many languages worldwide, she has been hitting bestseller lists for the past decade.

    Wonderful! A Summer Rollercoaster Ride!

    This book was FUN. It's an adventure with a feel-good message and a happy ending. Full of twists and turns, fast pace, it takes place in a fascinatiing world that blends victorian england with magic. My favorite part was the characters. The villains are hilarious, but Jake and Danie are characters you root for.I'm choosing this one for our summer bookclub at the library.

    When life gives you lemons, do we always have to make lemonade?

    When life gives you lemons, do we always have to make lemonade?

    Jake had been on his own and struggling to stay alive for most of the twelve years of his life. He knew how to survive on the rough streets of London picking here and plotting there to keep his belly full and his body warm. When the unthinkable happens and it seems men have come to murder him staying alive becomes much harder than even he expected especially when he has no idea why anyone would do such a thing.

    The savior for Jake was Derek who it turned out was his Guardian, as it appears Jake is heir to an earldom and the castle that goes with it, along with other assets to protect. What is standing in between Jake and this inheritance is his uncle who it appears has enjoyed the riches that were so carefully gathered by Jake's parent for him. So keeping Jake away at any cost becomes his uncle's singular objective in life.

    These turn of events are not the only ones happening in Jake's life. It appears he has inherited his parent's telekinesis and of course the ability to see and talk to ghosts! Learning to use them properly is a task no one is sure Jake can handle but never underestimate the power of a determined boy. He finds family to encourage him, mentors to teach him, and strength that keeps him moving forward to take back what rightfully belongs to him. There are friends of the human and Fey variety assisting so let the adventure begin.

    Wonderful is the first word of many that come to mind when you have read this book. The first book in The Gryphon Chronicles is an introduction to the creative genius that is E.G. Foley. The author has captured both the hopeful side of life with all its magic mixed so flawlessly with moments of danger that is always around the corner. The anticipation of the next book in this series, Jake and the Giant is almost too much to bear.

    Great Job!

    As a dad, I take notice when any book gets my 12 y.o. son to read. He was glued to this one and now the 9 y.o. wants to read it when he's done. I might even read it myself if I ever get my Nook back. It looks fun.

    Fresh

    This book was a breath of fresh air from the uaual fiction books imvolving magic. It's not set in Medieval or modern times, not in a forest or desert but London, England.

    I took a chance on buyimg this book and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Cannot wait for the sequel!

    Awsone book I could read it a milllion times

    I love this book because it is a combonation of both my favorite authers. My first one is J.RR Tolkien. I like his books because he adds that spark of mysteriousness which E.G Foley uses in the lost heir. My second favorite author is C.S Lewis because also ises alot of description to make a vivid picture in your head on what is happening in the book. E.G Foley ises both traits so now I will like to include E.G Foley as one of my favorite authors

    THE GRYPHON CHRONICES: THE LOST HEIR by E. G. Foley is an intrig

    THE GRYPHON CHRONICES: THE LOST HEIR by E. G. Foley is an intriguing Fantasy/Fiction/Adventure set in Victorian London. # 1 in "The Gryphon Chronicles". What a beginning. A mixture of fantasy, almost like a steampunk and historical. Jake is a orphaned pickpocket on the streets of Victorian London, living by his wits. Jake has strange things happening to him, he can move objects, see ghosts, he is being hunted and is in deadly peril. What he doesn't know could just get him killed. He holds the secret of the long-lost heir of Griffon, a family with magical powers. Filled with adventure, mystery, magic, treachery and Jake must solve the mystery of what really happened to his beloved parents. But can he defeat his most deadly foe of all? With the help of his friends, Jake may just survive and live to find the answers. A fast paced, adventure filled story from beginning to end. An reader who enjoys fantasy, and mystery, young or old is sure to enjoy "The Lost Heir". I enjoyed this story. Well done, indeed! Well written with vivid descriptions, and engaging characters and what a sinister storyline. I can hardly wait to see what grand adventure Jake and his friends will find next. Move over Harry Potter, Jake in here! Received for an honest review from the author.

    RATING: 4
