Fantasy

The Serpents Shadow (by Rick Riordan)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Nicholas, grade 6

I like the book mostly because it's very suspenseful and full of action. Another reason is because it is by my favorite author. If you like the Kane Chronicle then this is a huge step forward in the series. I love how it includes one of my favorite topics, which is ancient mythology.

The Shifter (by Janice Hardy)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Sparks, grade 7th

Why I did like this story is because of all the neat and surprising highlighted events. Like when Nya has found out what she can do with her power. How she meets a new friend and heals his family. And saves her sister from the clutches of evil. But that's all I can say or I'll ruin the whole book. Thanks for reading this!

Bluestar's Prophecy (by Erin Hunter)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Vivian, grade 8

This book is one of my all-time favorites. It's a book about a stray cat's life in the forest - how she stays alive, makes friendships, suffers losses, and the biggest question of all - will she become leader of her group of feral cats? I would recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure, suspense, and a bit of mystery. I could read this book over and over again - the thickening plot is just that good!
