This Friday I'm highlighting:
Bran Hambric - The Farfield Curse
by Kaleb Nation
My 11 year old daughter (yes I know she's not a boy!) just listened to the audio book for Bran Hambric, and she LOVED it. Seriously I had to make her put her ipod away. At school when she couldn't listen, she'd read the book.
Why boys might like it: There is a ton of action mixed in with some suspence and mystery. The main character is a boy they can relate it. If they liked Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, they'll find some similarities here.
Bran Hambric was found locked in a bank vault at six years old, with no memory of his past. For years, he has lived with one of the bankers, wondering why he was left behind- until one night, when he is fourteen, he is suddenly confronted by a maddened creature, speaking of Bran’s true past and trying to kidnap him. Bran finds that he is at the center of a plot which started years before he was even born: the plot of a deadly curse his mother created…and one that her former masters are hunting for him to complete. Haunted by the spirit of his mother’s master and living in a city where magic is illegal, Bran must undo the crimes of his past...if it's not already too late.
Check out the offical website as well!
Lots of great things at the website.
