Topic: Book Review
Before I get into today's post, I want to thank Kevin Gerard for visiting with us the past few days. I have thoroughly enjoyed geting to know him and discovering his books. Thank you, Kevin.
Please continue reading this entire post to find out about a spectacular "treasure hunt" that will be taking place starting in January.
In today's fast-paced world, it is often difficult to get kids to be still long enough to read. Kevin Gerard has solved that problem wonderfully with his series of fantasy books, Conor and the Crossworlds.
The Crossworlds is a place similar to a corridor from which many parallel universes can be reached. Some of these worlds are inhabited by human-like creatures while others boast animal-like creatures with human qualities. All the worlds are looked over by The Circle of Seven. As with every instance of good, there must be a counterforce of evil and this comes about in the form of The Evil Circle.
We first meet Conor when he is ten and each of the books in this series see him a couple years older. With the help and guidance of a large winged cougar, Conor is taken to the Crossworlds to help fight the evil that threatens to destroy all the worlds. In his adventures, he learns not only about the world but also about himself and what he is capable of achieving.
Readers from 10 to 110 will find themselves instantly transported into the Crossworlds. The characters are so realistic and well-developed, I found myself forgeting they were merely creations of Kevin Gerard. This series is destined to give Harry Potter and the Warrior series a run for their money.
The books are written so that readers as young as ten can easily comprehend what is happening, yet adult readers will be entranced. This is truly a family series and would make a wonderful gift for all those readers on your gift lists, male or female. I have already added it to my "to buy" list for my son's sixteenth birthday.
Kevin has buried five treasure chests with five different keys around the country. The clues to where the treasure chests are have appeared in the first three books and they will be followed by more clues online
(http://www.conorandthecrossworlds.com/ ). Whoever finds the treasure chests keeps the keys and wins other prizes.
