for a kids book, this could be a little scary, its easy reading and has a mix of scary bits, comedy, and plenty of action. its not to detailed and don't drag on. could have been longer, apart from a few mistakes its a good read, exciting and fun. sometimes you feel like you are in the adventure with the kids. The witches are a good enemy, scary and evil, the Jarts (the rabbit, type dog things) are a little scary and that was quite off the edge off your seat reading. there could have been more to the story but it was only aimed at kids. I would recommend this book to fans of lord of the rings, harry potter, even the wizard of oz. It ends with Cameron and his sister going on to there next adventure and I would like to read that as well, but it might take a bit to beat this one. all in all a good read.

Chris Jones worked as a machine operator all his life. he always wanted to write a book and get it published. Chris always had storeys in mind but never found the time to write. He worked shift work and had a young family. In march 2009 he was made redundant from a large world wide company after being employed with them for 17years and only got 6miniutes notice. With no skills or qualifications and in a recession,Chris did not know what to do next. This is when he decided to finally sit down and start to write a storey he had,had in his mind for a while. He brought a packet of pencils and a pad and put his storey onto paper. He then, once halfway through contacted Author house who gave him information on how to publish his writings. Chris had never used a computer before and went out to purchase a laptop then once he finished writing his book he began to type it up. By November 2009 he had finished typing and his book was now ready to be published. If it fails at least i can say i tried, if it is a success i will have achieved what i always wanted to do Chris told his friends and family. If it works out well Chris hopes to continue writing as a full time career. He has two children Jess and Cameron, both names are characters in the book but has nothing to do with his children in anyway.
