Two dads, five siblings, and goggles!
Grim Doyle has always known his life was not exactly “normal”, and things get even more curious when he discovers a set of stones that sweep him and his family to the fantasy, steampunk world of Verne – a place they had escaped from years ago. Now that they’ve returned, Grim and his siblings hide from the evil Lord Victor and his minions. And while learning about Jinns, Mystics, and the power of absinth they try to discover who is trying to kill them with the deadly Scourge.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Perfectly balanced and riveting as it moves forward, the story of Grim Doyle and his siblings is imaginative in its setting of an alternate Steampunk world where traditional magic and mechanics collide as the forces of good and evil wage their war for dominance. I love “Scourge” and can’t wait for the sequel and my 10-year old son feels exactly the same way.
This book is one part J.K. Rowling, one part Lemony Snicket, one part H.G Wells/Jules Verne, and all parts awesome! This is a great middle grades chapter book, and particularly appealing to young male readers. I think young readers will love it.
I purchased this for my kindle, and just ordered a print copy to add to our library…it is definitely a keeper!! This is an imaginative, colorful book that keeps you wondering what will happen next. You are transported to another world where magic meets ingenuity.
SCOURGE is fast-paced, clever, and uniquely interesting. Burton has done a good job with a very large number of characters. SCOURGE is a fun read that just about anyone with an imagination would relish.
This is a story with something to offer everyone– intrigue, technology, drama, family issues and squabbles, comedy, the list goes on and on.
