When I first saw this book, I knew I wanted to read it. That was years ago. But I recently found it at a book sale and snatched it up. I had absolutely no idea what to expect with this book. This book seemed to be written for adults, yet the whole story was from the perspective of a teenage boy. I was quickly drawn into the story and mystery and finished the book in a few days. I really enjoyed it. This book has a great blend of history and fantasy and a variety of interesting characters. Would definitely recommend this as a good read!
