4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too, 25 Jan 2008

This review is from: The Hound of Rowan (Tapestry) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs Harry Potter when you've got Max McDaniels?, 8 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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!
