This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.

Quick paced action, wizards, mystery, and children combined in a story that keeps you reading.

Three children, ten years, too many orphanages to count. What wonders will they discover? Why did their parents abandon them? Will they ever see mom and dad again?

This book is written in a manner that young readers will understand. The language and words will be easily understood. The story has enough twists and turns to hold the readers attention and keep them reading. There were times when the story seemed to wander, as Kate thought about things.

John Stephens always wanted to write books for children. In this book, he has succeeded. He has not only written a book for children, but he has written a book that could become a children’s classic.

I can easily recommend this book to children and teens. It may be the book that gets them hooked on reading. I will be reading more of this authors books.
