I LOVE this series! So cleverly written!
Where most people see Junior High School as something to endure- this author sees it as a possible series of quests a young pawn might play in order to outwit his dark knight opponent...
Pass a test = an act of great wisdom - LOVE IT!
However, with each quest comes an increase in abilities and with each ability come an increase in responsibility... and there are consequences if you try to "use your powers to show off."
Add in the fact that Rich's dad is missing...
With that looming over him and his burning desire to go find him plus is need to finish his quests...
Life is anything but easy-
Filled with a perfect blend of mystery, adventure, magic, quests, enemies, chess, family, and friends!
SUCH A GREAT STORY!
PERFECT FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
