    I purchased this book because I stumbled across the free pod cast read by John Lenahan.I had already listen to half of the book on this pod cast and loved it and thought it would be good to read along It s a great middle grade fantasy that can be read, both by adults and children alike Though the free pod cast can be used by both, it can be a great help and make it easier for some to read along.I look forward to reading the second book in the series and using the free pod cast for that book to I purchased this book because I stumbled across the free pod cast read by John Lenahan.I had already listen to half of the book on this pod cast and loved it and thought it would be good to read along It s a great middle grade fantasy that can be read, both by adults and children alike Though the free pod cast can be used by both, it can be a great help and make it easier for some to read along.I look forward to reading the second book in the series and using the free pod cast for that book too So I give this book a good 4 stars as it s a great book, but would have given the 5 stars if I was still 12

    I bumped this down from 5 stars to 4 on my 4th roundabout time reading itI guess I didn t notice it when I read this when I was younger but there is so much obvious explanation happening in this book Conor is basically clueless about everything which is understandable but the whole book is essentially made up of 3 things 1 Conor being knocked unconscious, 2 Conor making Real World references that no one gets and 3 Conor asking what s that and some blatant exposition occurring afterw I bumped this down from 5 stars to 4 on my 4th roundabout time reading itI guess I didn t notice it when I read this when I was younger but there is so much obvious explanation happening in this book Conor is basically clueless about everything which is understandable but the whole book is essentially made up of 3 things 1 Conor being knocked unconscious, 2 Conor making Real World references that no one gets and 3 Conor asking what s that and some blatant exposition occurring afterwards I found the 3rd point to be quite annoying because once you notice it, you realise it s everywhere in the book.Still, there were a lot of things I loved in this book Like the prophecy You gotta love a good prophecy that has a meaning no one understands A bittersweet kind of twist, I guess You love it but hate the consequence of it at the same time.Conor was sometimes hilariously unpredictable and at other times not funny but trying hard to be When his joke hit the mark it was great His relationship with Fergal was within seconds amazing The other character dynamics between what I like to call the main 4 Araf, Essa, Fergal and Conor were very interesting and for the most part pretty good.I think this book is pretty good But considering I know what comes next and that the next 2 books are considerably better I can confidently say that this isn t the best John Lenahan has to offer It s definitely one of the most unique mg ya fantasy I ve ever read possibly because it s the only one I ve ever read with ties to Irish mythology Doing research on Irish mythology and a lot of things mentioned in the book has been a lot of fun Also, it was super awesome to buddy read this with my friend Rune and introduce her to the world of Shadowmagic

    I chose this book for my grade 6 7 creative writing class to read My students and I found the book very adventurous, and fast paced with some interesting plot twists Basic story of a boy in our world who discovers he has a destiny in a magical Other World The novel doesn t bring anything new to the fantasy genre, and it does rely on a lot of cliches, but if you are looking for an enjoyable, fun read which we were this one is quite good.
