Well, this was age-appropriate for children. The writing was crisp and evocative. A child good develop excellent reading and writing habits from reading something like this. I know at this age, parents are happy if the child develops a thirst for reading. Yet, it is important that you fuel that love of reading with great books. This one would qualify.
Now, I am more use to reading grown-up books, but my niece was thrilled with this book. The story, the plot and the pacing all made this an effortless read. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has children. This is a young readers novel perfect for summer reading by kids in late elementary school or even early jr. The cousins must use their powers in a creative way to overcome the evil Sarlak by taking back control of the mind of a Lord on an alien world who was once beneficent but whose mind is under the control of Sarlak. Creative problem solving is the theme in this book because the kids best chance at success is to fight indirectly instead of head on.
So its a great read for a young mind. I can't say there is much to recommend it to adults. While the characters of the cousins are all very well drawn they over narrative is a little too simple for adults. That just means it's a great read for kids or to read to kids. Not every novel needs to ride on roads leading to every type of reader at the same time.
One person found this helpful. Loved the book waiting for the second one I thought it was pretty good and my nieces loved it also. This is a good if you want to escape for a short time. Character development is light and uncomplicated. I wish there was more Jack though. He was my favorite!!!!!! I also think it could have been longer. Couldn't put it down. Started reading book 2.

Dec 20, Kekoa rated it liked it. Keeping in mind that this book was geared towards Middle Grade readers, I still enjoyed the concept and storyline. If grammar mistakes and typos ruin a story for you, then be forewarned that this one has many. Dialogue between characters can be very repetitive and frustrating many times throughout this book, but as that was actually pointed out on one occasion, I'm assuming it was continued on purpose to illustrate a child's point of view while trying to speak with adults.
There's a lot of morals Keeping in mind that this book was geared towards Middle Grade readers, I still enjoyed the concept and storyline. There's a lot of morals for kids to learn about in this book.
Some of the main ones are teamwork, trust, and responsibility all while stretching the limits of your imagination. With that being said, I would certainly recommend this book to any young reader. Sep 21, Beth Cloud rated it really liked it.

Danny gets a mysterious message to meet with an ambassador who promises to stop the invasion before it happens. He brings Braden and Jillian along.
