I LOVED this book. It started off with a bang and kept up the tension and edge-of-your-seat intensity through the end. I loved the treasure hunt, the clues, the mystery, the danger, and the restoring old books knowledge. I loved the characters – especially Sam, Bennett, and Joane.
Sam is the brains of the trio, Joane the daring one and Sam’s best friend, and Bennett the one who can rattle off book knowledge and who has a delicious we-both-love-each-other-but-we’re-too-embarrassed-to-admit-it relationship with Sam. They work so much better together than apart, and I absolutely cannot wait to read more of their adventures. Please, Jenny Elder Moke, if you’re listening — we NEED more of Sam, Bennett, and Joane.
I raced through this book in less than 24 hours and when I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it. I really enjoyed Hood when it came out last year, but this was 1000 times better. I need more!
