Overview

The König is a tyrant. His subjects are starving. And all-out war is fast approaching.
Will a pair of young, courageous brothers save their kingdom?

When an emissary sent by the König himself stops by the remote mouse colony of Long Meadow, the peaceful life Sommer and Nesbit have shared is turned upside down-and the brothers are catapulted into separate death-defying adventures. Sommer, levelheaded and clever, is ordered to the palace to join the König's illustrious Eagle Guard as it prepares to face a full-scale invasion by the nefarious Emperor Wolfsmilch and his army of a hundred thousand forest mice. Meanwhile, the small but spirited Nesbit is banished to the Forest of Lost Life for insulting the König, and must dodge hungry predators at every turn.

The brothers struggle to reunite and defy the oppressors who threaten everyone and everything they have ever known and loved. But time is quickly running out for both of them-and the fate of the kingdom hinges on one last, daring mission.

Set against the magnificent backdrop of Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria, The Kingdom of the Sun and Moon is an action-packed adventure story for young readers and adults alike.

A kingdom of mice. A looming invasion. A local power-grab. An unjust banishing. Lowell weaves together a credible tale of incredible mice. Engaging, winsome, and just. It's nice to see a book for children that is still in the old vein of right prevailing. The fact that things work out in the end is important, but it's the telling that matters - the bravery, the self-sacrifice, the honor. Noble traits aren't often lauded in tales anymore, and I applaud Lowell for turning out a quality work that tells a different story of good vs evil. I received a complimentary ebook in exchange for my honest review. PS - It's refreshing to read an ebook with no formatting errors! This is surprisingly rare in my experience.

This is the story of two brothers on a quest to save their kingdom from the Konig, a greedy dictator. They live in the garden of Schonbrum Palace until one day when they are separated. The story covers their search for each other as they struggle to save the kingdom.  I selected this book because I love fantasy stories especially ones that involve animals. It kind of reminds me of Watership Down because of the animals and the style of writing. I really liked the relationship between the two brothers, Nesbit and Sommer. My older brother reminds me of Sommer. I related more to Nesbit. He doesn't really see himself as a leader he just kind of relies on Sommer to protect them and stuff. As the story goes on, Nesbit accepts his role as a leader in the revolution against the Konig.  The story was full of details in a world I've never been to right down to their every whisker. I've never been to Europe but now I want to visit Schonbrum Palace. Overall I really like this book because it could be read by all ages and it will be an adventure they'll never forget. I'm definitely going to recommend it for my school's summer reading list.

This is an excellent book, and the setting is incredibly cever and descriptive. It is just the right length for an 11-12 year old to read. Be warned there is some violence, but it never gets too graphic. The one issue I had was the fact that the plot moved quickly and was predictable. Otherwise an entertaining, fun read.
