I just read a new book cowritten by Wayne Thomas Batson. The series is called The Berinfell Prophecies and the first book is titled The Curse of the Spider King. It's a fun and fast-paced read and the characters all have different powers. If you like battles, adventure, fantasy, and action, read about it in the Adventure/Fantasy section Ages 13+ and see if you think you'll like it.
Two new books have come out this month! The second Brotherband Chronicles, The Invaders, came out early May. We've been waiting eagerly for it, and it was great, if not as good as the first one. Still, we all enjoyed it. That and the Ranger's Apprentice are two of our family's favorite series, with adventure, battles, tactics, good characters, and humor. Check these companion series out in the Action/Adventure section and scroll down to Ages 10+.
How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword came out a couple days ago. This is just a heads up, since we haven't read it yet. Even though there is a little magic and a lot of viking roughness in it, it's pretty funny and they're short, enjoyable reads. Check out the series in Adventure/Fantasy Ages 9+.
