For Day Two of our Third Annual Half-Birthday Bash, I hope you will enjoy this review and giveaway of Cragbridge Hall, book 1: The Inventor's Secret.
Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor's Secret by Chad Morris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The first book in a series has the heavy responsibility of introducing an entire world of characters and, sometimes, a literally new world to us. In The Inventor's Secret, Chad Morris is able to hook the reader with the quirkiness of Abby, not so unique genius of her twin brother, Derick, and a secret-laden plot that twists and turns in unexpected directions for these two teenagers.
My favorite aspect of The Inventor's Secret: The ability to learn from the past by literally going there to seek knowledge and solutions. In today's world we might not be able to literally go between past and present, yet we can make a study of the past in order to solve some of the challenges we face now.
The story draws upon fantasy, historical facts, and futuristic (on the brink of dystopian) reading interests. Because of this fact, I recommend the first Cragbridge Hall book to lovers of all these areas, ages 10 and up.
As an adult reader, I was pulled into the innovative concepts and found it a very entertaining read. The sequels can't come soon enough, for I am curious to see what the author will bring to the table next time.
