This had a ridiculously slow start and just didn't feel very original or interesting to me on the whole. I guess it's hard to compete with Harry Potter. My son is interested in reading book two, but I've told him he'll have to read it to himself (this has been our family read). ( )

I am just not connecting with the main protagonist - I tried to persevere but he keeps setting my teeth on edge. Dropping out after about 2 chapters
probably wont read more from author ( )

Rather slow going for much of the book. And the writing at times a bit confusing. The pace and quality pick up toward the end. The story itself is intriguing. We will continue with the next one. ( )

Book 1 in the 'Ashtown Burial' series, and as such, took about half of the book to set down the back story. It picked up after that, and in part can be compared to 'The Goonies', 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' (though in less of a 'sweet' manner) and 'Ghostbusters'. Please note that this reader intends all these comparisons as compliments to the story. ( )

Epigraph
Please declare aloud: I hereby undertake to tread the world, to garden the wild, and to saddle the seas, as did my brother Brendan. I will not turn away from shades in fear, nor avert my eyes from light. I shall do as my Keeper requires, and keep no secret from a Sage. May the stars guide me and my strength preserve me. And I will not smoke in the library. Translation approved, 1946.
Dedication
For James Kenneth Thomas III,
without whom, not a chance
First words
North of Mexico, south of Canada, and not too far west of the freshwater sea called Lake Michigan, in a place where cows polka-dot hills and men are serious about cheese, there is a lady on a pole.
