Publisher's Summary

N. D. Wilson, author of Leepike Ridge and 100 Cupboards, returns with an action-packed adventure that will captivate fans of both Percy Jackson and Indiana Jones with lost civilizations, ancient secrets, and buried treasure.

For two years, Cyrus and Antigone Smith have run a sagging roadside motel with their older brother, Daniel. Nothing ever seems to happen. Then a strange old man with bone tattoos arrives, demanding a specific room.

Less than 24 hours later, the old man is dead. The motel has burned, and Daniel is missing. And Cyrus and Antigone are kneeling in a crowded hall, swearing an oath to an order of explorers who have long served as caretakers of the world's secrets, keepers of powerful relics from lost civilizations, and jailers to unkillable criminals who have terrorized the world for millennia.

Great story - great narration

This book was a great listen. N.D. Wilson is one of the best young adult fiction writers and his new series is off to a fantastic start. All of the characters are interesting and it's fun to find out more about each one as the story unfolds. The storyline is really good -- the momentum builds quickly. I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Not as I expected

After thoroughly enjoying the Wingfeather Saga and searching for a new series, Audible recommended this one. The storyline is heavily loaded with too many sudden precarious situations around every bend - at least for someone older then about 10 years old. There are many parts that resemble other well-known books about boys and girls doing heroic things against bad guys at a special school…and the reader, although very clear and articulate, really doesn’t handle the character voices. I finished the book, but was begging for it to end well before the 2/3 mark. Sorry - but skip this and check out the Green Ember series and the Wingfeather Saga series. You’ll thank me!

Set Assumptions Aside...

This story seems to borrow from a dozen different successful children's adventure stories--some of the borrowing is not even subtle: many of the names are taken right out of the pages of Treasure Island. It is the story of orphaned youths who find themselves to be the heirs of some estate they knew nothing about, mixed with a secret society that trains their members in exotic arts, and a "bad guy that everyone fears and who has a family history with the heroes. . . .

BUT....It's good. The characters are engaging, the wordcraft excellent, the conflicts compelling, and the world enchanting.

I kept expecting the story to go somewhere "cheesy," but I was pleasantly surprised. Some elements were predictable but no more than a YA story should be.

I really enjoyed this one, and I plan to read the next in the series.

I love this Book!

I love this series. I would highly recommend it. Although it can be scary for younger kids. I think that N.D Wilson does a great job at character building. He always makes me fall in love with the characters.

Amazing Storyweaving

This is an amazing work of art! This author has a way with words when describing scenes and characters, especially what they are thinking and feeling. His word choices are so wonderfully creative.

The story starts of slow but picks up quickly and is riveting until the end.

I liked it

Wilson writes a good sentence. This is the rare ability in writers of young adult fiction. He is able to entertain while provoking thought and beautiful imagery by the careful, creative use of the English language. I liked it.

For my taste as an adult, the book relies a little too much on the action / level / object / powers pattern of modern fiction which seems to have borrowed from video game story lines. This is sure to appeal to younger readers, though, and does nor annoy me sufficiently yet to keep me away from the rest of the series. I was most intrigued by the Frankenstein and Animal Farm -like story line in the book. That is something I have not encountered in modern YA fiction yet (it is in movies like Jurassic Park but not in books), but it is something that modern science almost seems to be leading towards.

Definitely worth the read or listen.
