Christina Dymock, author: "I highly recommend this series for middle grade readers and their parents. They are clean, fun, and take a good look at some of the issues that Jr. High students face. Mr. 12 and I had some good discussions about character development as well as teenage development." Read the whole review here. Lisa at Queen of Random:"...thewriting is solid, captivating and clever . . . . Mr. Bell's trilogy is a master class in how to write MG Fantasy. Totally awesome! And he ties in their emotional hang ups without making them whiny (except in those moments when it's intentional to the character). Great world building . . . ." Read the whole review here.
Rebecca at The Crooked Word: "Mr. Bell has taken us on a fun, magic-filled journey - and the worst thing I can say about it is: It's over. Kids will love the magic, the adventure, the fun, the real-to-life characters. Parents will appreciate the examples of self-sacrifice and friendship, loyalty and teamwork." Read the whole review here.
