My kids are HUGE Harry Potter fans and are really obsessed right now. When I started this book, that's immediately who I thought of--Harry Potter. There are a lot of similarities, but there are some differences that make it fun and unique. First, we have Calvin, a boy who discovers that he has some magical powers, which was previously unknown to him. Next, we have his two best friends--one boy and one girl. Anna was adopted as a baby, is very smart, and also discovers that she has a talent for casting spells. Perry is more of a bumbling type of boy. And finally, these three discover a secret land, Cambria, hidden in the woods near their homes, where they go to train and develop their powers, while encountering many secrets, evil, and more than they bargained for. I enjoyed the characters and the relationships they had with one another. They got along well and were very supportive of one another, yet it didn't come off as being too perfect or forced. The adventure was done in a good way, too. There weren't too many details given, so the reader never felt bogged down, as sometimes happens in a book where an alternate world is introduced, but the setting was described in a way that I never felt lost. Events occurred at a good pace--they weren't over too quickly, nor were they dragged out. I feel like that's an important balance for younger readers. It was fun and the ending leaves things open for more. Any fan of fantasy, especially Harry Potter, is sure to enjoy this one. *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*

5 stars I read Calvin Sparks and the Crossing to Cambria and did not want to put it down. It reminds me a little of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson or Ranger Apprentice type of story. It is full of magic, adventure, dragons. Three friends are exploring the woods looking for a magical place. They find it. Calvin Sparks lives with his mom & grandfather. His father was killed. He is special. Anna is special too. She is adopted and has overprotective parents who want her to have more girl friends. Perry is more timid than his two friends. He is a good friend though. Cambria is a different kingdom through magical portals. There is a great battle of good versus evil. There are six powerful objects that will make the holder immortal. Each object brings more power and a thirst for more powerful. Galigore already has two items. He has corrupted many to his side. His forces killed Calvin's father. This is a clean read that anyone can read and enjoy. That has lots of action, drama, discovery, trials and making choices. They all have to make choices. Some of the twists and turns I was expecting others took me by surprise. I want to read the next book and see what happens next. I was given this ebook to read and in return I agreed to give honest review and be part of Calvin Sparks and the Crossing to Cambria blog tour.

Calvin Sparks and the Crossing to Cambria by Rusty Anderson is an interesting Children's Books/Action & Adventure/ Science Fiction, Fantasy & Scary Stories. A fast paced tale of fantasy, science fiction, with a bit of magic and lots of adventure. Oh, and I forgot the sword play. Perfect for any young reader who enjoys action, adventure, and a bit of magic. If you enjoyed HARRY POTTER, you will enjoy this tale. Well written with wonderful imagery, and action. It will keep the reader engaged. A wonderful addition to any readers library, rather young or old. *Received for an honest review from the author and/or publisher* Rating: 4 Heat rating: N/A Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
