The Legends Begin

Darkmouth #1

This book was amazing. I loved how the cover just makes you want to read this. The story teaches you about family, destiny, courage, and how to stand up for yourself and for those you love.

This one really reminded me of Harry Potter where Harry is put into situations and then has to figure out the solutions to get him out of them.

The book was easy for me to read and I didn't feel like I was lost at all. I even showed it to my teacher. I think both boys and girls would like to read this. And with Harry Potter being over this book could fill that hole.

The story itself was good. I loved it. There was action, adventure, betrayal, and friendships. The book ends on a cliffhanger, which made me kind of mad. Now I have to hope to get book two.

This is a great new fantasy for kids of all ages…well 10 and up.
