Great book for a middle school classroom read. My 8th-grade students loved the action and adventure. ( )

Cassie is launched into a life of intrigue and danger when she discovers that she is the target of a group known as the Hastati who are after her for, due to her bloodline, the power she posses to control the Spear of Destiny. This novel is fastpaced and well-written, complete with plot twists and,of course, the cliffhanger ending. Will definitely be looking for the sequel. Recommended for reluctantreaders 9 years old and up. ( )

Moving Target is a Da Vinci Code style story written for young adults. For years Cassie and her art historian father have moved all over the world to whatever place her father's work took them. Suddenly, Cassie's father, in a panic, takes her out of school. He begins to tell her an unbelievable story about herself and her life when he is shot. Knowing she doesn't have much time, Cassie seeks out the man her father told her to find, a monk in an ancient monastery. There she learns that her life is linked to an ancient spear that can control destinies. Cassie then goes on the run with her best friend, Simone, and Asher, her protector, to find the ancient spear. This book is only the beginning of the story, so I expect there will be more books to follow. This story was very enjoyable with lots of action and some major twists that completely change the direction of the story. Lots of fun - can't wait for the next installment. ( )

RGG: DaVinci Code for middle-grade readers. About as convoluted and confusing, and minimal character development. The main character is of Cuban heritage. Reading Interest: 10-12.

In this exciting and action-packed adventure by an award-winning author, a young girl discovers her secret ancient bloodline. The fate of her family, and the world, may rest in her hands . . .

Cassie sets out to uncover what is happening, only to learn that she is a member of an ancient bloodline that enables her to use the Spear of Destiny--a legendary object that can alter the future. Now running from a secret organization intent on killing those from her bloodline, Cassie must--with the help of some friends--decipher the clues that will lead her to the Spear.
