“TOOK” by: Mary Downing Hahn, is about a boy name Daniel and his little sister name Erica. They moved into a new state name West Virginia. They both didn't wanted to move there. Their new home is an old farm. The house was near the woods. They were really scared and frighten to live in that house because a women use to live in that house. That women was a witch, her name is Old Auntie. Daniel was really scared if something weird and strange happened. He was trying to protect his own family. In Conclusion, “TOOK” is a really good book. It’s spooky, scary, freaky, unhappy, lonely, etc. The author believes scary is causing people to be scared or fear.
"TOOK" is a really good book to read because it's a really spooky story. Everyone should really read this book real bad. It's very interesting. I love it when it's a mystery. A girl got lost and no one knows where she is or went. Some students really wants to read this book that is why people should read it.
Shadow of the Mark
By: Leigh Fallon
Genre: Fiction, Science-Fiction, Fantasy
" Shadow of the Mark " by Leigh Fallon has a basic theme, but its unique to the story. The author left you in her earlier book on the fact that the two main characters, Megan and Adam, can not keep seeing each other because of the history of those before them, but in the new book this is not their only problem. The elements are getting strong and are making the characters drawn to each other in harsh ways. For instance, Megan begins feeling affections Adam's brother( Rian ) because their elements want to be close. This becomes a side problem when Megan finds out she is a Cluain and can take the elements away from the DeRises. Megan goes through problem after problem and is still experiencing problems, she states at the end of the book " I was going to do everything in my power to make the circle come full. This time, the Order would lose. The marked line will end with me. ". The theme; persevere with problems is supported constantly throughout the book.
I enjoyed reading this book, it was full of adventure and the author did a good job at making the story well detailed. If you like to be kept on your toes this book is for you. Its suspenseful,romantic, well written and just jammed packed with activity. I would give it five stars but if you miss a little bit you're lost.
The Fire Within
By: Chris d'Lacey
The Fire Within, by Chris d'Lacey, and is the first book in the series, The Last Dragon Chronicles. It starts in the small town of Scrubbley with a tenant named David, has moved down to Scrubbley from Blackburn to settle down and get a good college education. The mother, Elizabeth (aka Liz) and her daughter, Lucy, are a very unique family who makes clay dragons. David soon finds out the Pennykettle's home is more unique than he thought.
One reason I rated this book the way I did was because I personally love fantasy books and dragons and want all dragon-lovers, fantasy-lovers, and mystery-lovers to take their time to read these books. There's so many interesting parts in this series and usually at the end of every chapter. I think it's so worth it to at least try out this book and read the other books as well.
