The Secret Circle: The Initiation and Captive Part I (by L.J. Smith)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Jordyn, grade 8

I thought the book was interesting and suspensful. The main characters were all in a coven or circle of witches. Cassie completes the circle, but her arrival stirs up some secrets that should have been left alone. I loved the Initiation and the Captive Part 1.

Crookedstar's Promise (by Erin Hunter)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Renate, grade 8

Crookedstar's Promise is about Crookedstar, one of the leaders of River Clan. When he was a kit, Crookedstar made a promise to a StarClan cat that he would put his clan before everything else. In return, the StarClan cat, Mapleshade, promises to make him leader. Crookedkit didn't know how much that promise was going to cost him, his friends, family, and love. This books is great for cat lovers, but you have to read the Warriors series to understand it.

The Goblin Wood (by Hilari Bell)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Kaleab, grade 6

I wish I could give this book ten stars! You should read this book if you like fantasy, magic and goblins. My favorite part was when Onny (child goblin) was dared to touch the human prisoner. The last chapter made me want to read the next book, The Goblin Gate.

Rating 5

Reviewed by Adelaide, grade 9

This book had everyone's emotions on a ride. I felt really happy when they found out who the three cat is to complete the prophecy. I also felt sorry for the three cat because she finds out that she is different from her clanmates. You've really got to read this book if you are a Warriors fan.

The Outstretched Shadow (by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory)

Rating 5

Reviewed by William, grade 9

"The Outstretched Shadow" is a great fantasy book. It is a book with good morals and virtues. It is a more adult book, however, as it lightly hints at adult things. In all other ways it is a great book and a must read for all fantasy lovers.

Midnight Howl (by Clare Hutton)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Caitlyn, grade 6

I like Midnight Howl because it is a well written sotry, with juicy detail. I like how at first everyone thinks one person is the wolf, then at the end it was someone completely un-expected. The mystery and how she solves it is amazing.
