I had given her the 2nd and 3rd ones and she wanted this one.

Once you get used to the casual style, it’s very easy to get sucked into the book, not returning until you reach the last page! Not as vibrant, intricate, or detailed as the Percy Jackson series.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Like Riordan’s Lightning Thief series this is a modern take on Greek mythology. True Crime Children’s Books. Ajne it’s not the white-faced, yellow-eyed men in tuxedos who follow Charlotte everywhere. They’re smart and interesting and I adore being inside their heads and getting to know them. One person found this helpful. It was a good blend of modern times and Greek mythology. Charlotte also finds a kitten in the middle of the street and who just wouldn’t stop following her.

The Shadow Thieves

The villains are more sketchy. So, if you want to try a “Greek god” fantasy and your reader may be a little young for Percy, it seems to me that this would be a really good bet. He is proper, of mixed heritage and does not feel he fits in with others in his new school. I’ll try to read anything by her. Quite ordinary, in fact.

In this part you can see some action and it is essential to understand what comes next and some things from the beginning. The writing style is great, and the book for me was easy to get through.

It’s not the sudden arrival of her cousin Zee, who believes he’s the cause of a mysterious sickness See that girl, the one with the bright red hair, overstuffed backpack, and aura of grumpiness?


No, the extraordinary event will not be related to that man watching her behind the oak tree This book was good. Write your own comment on this book! If I chose one word to describe this book, it would be “eh”. What’s so extraordinary is not any one of these things Well, the kitten isn’t a problem, but everything else is, and Charlotte and Zee need to figure things out and save the world Like I remember thinking and acti I’m in the middle of this right now, and it is fantastic.

For instance, there were moments where I could skip pages and not miss anything important to the story. Anyway, a decent book. The kids in my life have read it and enjoyed it a I don’t read a LOT of “kids books” for the most part but because there are a lot of kids in my life, I do upon occasion and I’m pretty familiar with what’s out there. Thats exactly what it was for me something to “get through”, something to “bare until the end”, in which the end always seemed so far away.

Charlotte has always been careful to remain unremarkable.

I probably won’t bother with the next book in the series; there just wasn’t enough character development or plot intricacy to keep me connected. There are very few books I’ve started and not finished, and this was one of them.

The writing style of this book was NEVER that and included a well-advanced vocabulary and a great sarcastic wit xhadow the humor that kept me entertained – even as an adult.
