I loved this book, it was a great start to the whole series. It introduced you to the characters and kept your attention throughout the entire story. It made you excited to read the next book. I really enjoyed reading and would definitely recommend this book to others!
I loved this book! I figured out who was involved in stealing the gold and trying to kill Ashley, Bryce, their little brother, and Sam, but I did not see the last part coming. Also, things like bullying and watching bad movies, which are often a problem in our society, were addressed.
This book was really interesting, I liked how it switched back and forth from Bryce to Ashley's account and back again. The climax is the best part - I don't want to ruin it but this series, especially the first and last books, has some really interesting parts. :) All in all, it was great!
I tried this book when looking for fiction for my twins who are 9. The fact that these kids are also twins appealed to me, not to mention the fact that the series is written by Jerry B. Jenkins, the author of the Left Behind books. I just couldn't get into this story, though, and can't imagine my kids would, either (they're more into funny characters and books that involve animals). Perhaps other children would like the series, but we enjoyed Left Behind: The Kids, Winnie, the Horse Whisperer, and TJ and the Time Stumblers much more and recommend them, instead. However, try the book yourself--or at least read the first couple chapters before you take my word for it. I give it 3 stars because there's nothing exactly wrong with it; just not up our alley but nothing exceptional enough to redeem it.
Intriguing christian mystery for kids. Teaches kids about what it means to be a Christian and how to properly live in God's eyes. Good for older kids who won't be scared by some of the action in the book.
