3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Jan. 2008
Format: Hardcover
Max McDaniels always spends one day a year at the Art Institute. This year, from the moment he enters, something strange happens.

He finds himself in a roped-off room staring at a strange tapestry. Soon weird and wonderful things begin to happen to him as Max finds out about a magical school called Rowan Academy. Before long, his awe fades away into concern as he finds out that attending this school might be harder than he thought.

To top it off, kids who are also meant to attend the school are disappearing from all over the world at an alarming rate. A new sense of peril erupts around Rowan Academy and Max finds himself pulled into a world of secrets and danger....

In THE HOUND OF ROWAN, Henry Neff elegantly weaves a story full of adventure and fantasy and pulls readers into a magical, startling world. All in all, this is a good book to just curl up with on the couch and relax. The reader will almost immediately find themselves enraptured and completely caught up in Max's world.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ancient Mariner on 13 July 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
A lot of magical quest books and series have appeared post-Potter, and most have a shallow and slapdash feel to them. Stock characters, unexplained magic, enchanted thing-a-ma-bobs, and talking whatevers populate the shelves.

There are some very good series that take a very modest approach to magic and adventure, (I'm thinking Last Apprentice, and Ranger's Apprentice), but not too many reflect a serious investment of imaginative effort. That is where this book shines. There is a back story; the magic makes sense; the larger world is well conceived. An added bonus is reasonably three dimensional characters.

As a consequence, this strikes me as a series worthy of serious consideration.

I don't usually write reviews but I wanted to for this one as I'm totally in love with it and it's hardly had any UK reviews!
For me the description doesn't sell it very much but it is a truly great book! It's got magic and excitement by the bucketful. Max ends up going to a school to learn about his magic, has lots of quirky friends, there's hags, ogres and mystical creatures now I know this is starting to sound a bit like a Harry Potter book isn't it? Well, that's where the similarities end - but in a good way! We don't need another Harry Potter, we've got Max McDaniels now!
I've really fallen in love with this series, it's fast paced, full of adventure, twists and turns that you won't see coming and it keeps you interested throughout.
I'd recommend this book to anyone, it's well worth a read!

One of the best new teen fantasy reads!! 11 Sept. 2007
By G. Sarab - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the start of a series (not unlike Harry Potter - but thankfully different) that follows a group of children who are recruited (by mysterious means) to attend a spooky, wonderful, unique school in New England. The characters are well defined - you really get a feel for each different person - and the non-human characters are inventive and interesting. The author manages to weave in some celtic mythology, fairy tale creatures and beasts totally from his imagination (which are pretty scary). This may be a book published for teens but it's a great read. It keeps you guessing with twists and turns, goodies, baddies and strange mystic happenings. I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well told tale of adventure and magic. Plus the illustrations are beautiful. I wish the author all luck for this series - I think he's filling J.K. Rowlings shoes admirably.

engaging and entertaining -- and also smart! 7 Oct. 2007
By Mallyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Reading The Hound of Rowan was an utter treat. I kept finding myself transported to Rowan; it truly lives on these pages. The characters are created to be believable, and, with one exception, the character names are well-chosen and not silly or gimmicky. I also really appreciate that this book is literally well written - the grammar is gorgeous without being stuffy or dull (this is a true gift for an English teacher - I will enjoy using Hound as a tool for inspiring student writers). The comparisons to HP are inevitable, but I believe this series stands on its own, and I am so excited to read book 2!

Tough to put it down 2 Oct. 2007
By Joshua Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an incredible read. The story of Max's journey blends mythology and art history into a wild ride that explores the relationships of father and son, teacher and student, compatriots, and ultimately heroes. The writing style instantly sweeps both you and Max into a world that is as believable as it is fantastical.
This is not for the faint of heart, as darkness is barely held at arms length and the struggle to overcome has just begun. It is, however, for both the young and old.
The stage for the second book in the series is set masterfully and one can't help but imagine the trilogy on the big screen.

A "Potential" Best Seller!!! 28 Sept. 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I picked up this book earlier today and was completely captivated by the end of the first chapter. A rich, vivid and adventurous tale that keeps you turning page after page in anticipation of what is coming next. A few twists and turns, memorable, real characters that you root for, and a fast pace will keep you reading and wanting more. While, there are some similarities to the Harry Potter seriers, this book and (I'm sure the forthcoming books in the series) clearly stands on its own two feet with the ease and polish of a well told tale.

A masterful Read 12 Jan. 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
a masterful story that will insight a reader to journey beyond the realms of imagination. The Hound of Rowan has some wonderfully engaging characters that will keep the reader wondering the characters true intentions. The story is a bit like Harry Potter, but with a more absorbing plot lines and twists that will keep you guessing until the end. This book is definitely a must read, it is not just for children, but will also engage adults too. I encourage everyone to read this book, as you will not regret it!
