The Specter Key (Bran Hambric Series #2) by Kaleb Nation

Your enemies will do anything to stop you. Your best friend might be dead. And your only hope is your father...a man you've never met-until now.

Who would you trust?
Would you even trust yourself?

Bran Hambric believes that the Farfield Curse is over with. But when he discovers a safe-deposit box in his dead mother's name-in the very bank vault where he was discovered as a boy-Bran's past comes rushing back. Now he's on a frightening path that puts everyone he cares about in danger.

When Bran's best friend, Astara, is kidnapped, Bran will do whatever it takes to save her and prevent the evil mage on his trail from claiming the power of the curse for herself. But will the magic destroy him the way it destroyed his mother?

Praise for Kaleb Nation:

"Kaleb Nation's wry sense of humor kept me smiling, even while the mystical sparks flew. Get ready for lots of surprises ..."
-D. J. MacHale, author of the Pendragon Series

"Whimsy, magic, and suspense collide in this breathtaking tale. The Farfield Curse is a story you'll want to pick up, but not put down!"
-Kaza Kingsley, author of the bestselling Erec Rex series

About the Author

As a child, Kaleb Nation had to be forced to write one page a week in creative writing. But after he finished his first story, no one could make him to stop. Age twelve, he telephoned the editor of a major publisher to pitch his book, but got to talk with security instead. Years later, his books are now produced by publishers worldwide... including the one who first turned him down.

In this second book of the Bran Hambric series, Bran finds an old deposit box left by his mother with an enchanted lock. After finding the box, he is haunted by spirits who call themselves the Specters. Bran then realizes that these spirits have been enslaved by magic and there are some others in the world that will do anything to control their dark powers. The review chapters that author, Kaleb Nation, has posted for fans to read are already capturing their attention. The world of Bran Hambric is just even more intriguing as readers get to experience another adventure of this young boy. Although the Bran Hambric series is directed towards younger readers, any age can pick it up and enjoy it!

I thoroughly enjoyed walking into the creative mind of Kaleb Nation when I flipped open Bran Hambric: The Specter Key. The world he creates is colorful and rich in detail. The action is ongoing throughout the book which left me what was going to happen next. The story begins where Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse leaves off and jumps in with both feet. Elspeth & Joris share their evil plans by introducing the next challenge Bran will have to endure. Kaleb Nation created interesting new characters that tugged at my heartstrings. While reading, I wanted to hug Gary, smack Thomas and tip Oswald. Gary has a deep secret Bran has to seek out and discover. Thomas is hard and unfeeling but the conversations with Bran are entertaining. Oswald, is just a cool character with a kind heart. The conclusion had closure and didn't leave me hanging but left subtle hints of what we might see in the next book. Bran Hambric: The Specter Key is a delightful read that is entertaining, exciting and clean for kids. I know my children will LOVE this book and I recommend it to all families who enjoy reading together.

Bran Hambric: The Specter Key is an entertaining, funny, and suspenseful book with many twists and turns that make you just never wanna stop reading. Although The Frarfield Curse no doubt wins over this one, its still a good read and i cannot wait for the third book in the Bran Hambric series. Bravo Kaleb!
