This review is from: The Moon Stealers and The Quest for the Silver Bough: 1 (Paperback)
I was given an e-copy in exchange for my honest review. Right before reading it, I noticed that it was a free download, so I downloaded a copy to be sure that I had the most current edition.
The story begins with Peter getting ready to stay the night in a graveyard. Later we find out that it was due to a dare by one of the kids that pick on Peter. During his stay, strange noises are heard and Peter begins to worry about what is out there with him. Peter disappears. His one friend joins a few other kids and an older gentleman in the search for Peter (one of the kids happens to be the officers son that is working on the missing person case) and what cased his disappearance. During the same time, special M16 operatives are investigating meteor landing sites, and the strange activities that are happening in those areas.
When I first started the book, it seemed to be aimed for children (9-12) range, but part way through the book, it seemed to switch over for young adults. There were several editing issues and run on sentences throughout the book. I must admit that it seemed to take forever to get through the first half because of the writing style and issues, I just couldn't get into the book. After I hit the half way mark, the writing style and storyline switched tracks, and I became a little more interested. I am sure it would be much better with more editing and structure. The book does have a good plot.
Even though I had an had issue with the first half of the book, I am still interested to know what happens in the end. Still not sure if I am interested in purchasing the rest of the series to find out or not.
