Sky Raiders (Five Kingdoms, #1)

brandonmullWritten by Brandon Mull

Cole Randolph is a 12 year-old boy out on Halloween night with several friends. But, when a visit to a local Haunted House suddenly turns out to be dangerous and deadly, Cole finds himself in a place that is neither familiar nor friendly and which sets him on a path to save not only his best friends but also strangers who desperately need his help. This a roller-coaster ride of fun, fantasy and wild adventure! Readers will have a hard time putting this book down. Brandon Mull has a gift of creating some amazing worlds for young readers to explore and lose themselves in the pages of a good book and fantastic story line. I highly recommend this new series for 8-13 year olds. It’s similar to his Fablehaven series and the Beyonders, so it’s sure to find a wide audience among young readers. The author has 6 planned in the series and I can’t wait for book 2!
