by R. Christopher Kobb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fyrelocke: Jack Boomershine and the Prophecy Untold is one of those fun adventures that younger readers will love! Twelve-year-old inventor/electronics genius Jack Boomershine finds a glowing geode while on a school trip to some underground caves. Soon after, a local fortune teller warns him that the world he lives in is about to change. Can you say “Understatement?” Jack and his best friend, the serious future financial genius, Chase, are catapulted into a fantasy world full of quirky characters, and crazy dangers on a quest to find the prophesied Warlocke, who can command the FyreLocke, the glowing stone he had found in the cave. With the daring of a child, Jack often pulls off “MacGiver” type feats, just by using his brain to get out of a jam! With the help of several magical creatures, he navigates the treacherous journey fairly unscathed and uncovers the truth of the prophecy of the Warlocke. Is it Jack? Is it one of the many magical beings he has met? For that matter, is Jack really Jack, a clever young inventor or is he more? Does he want to be more?
This is a simply charming and captivating book where anything goes and the characters are goofy enough to make you grin!
R. Christopher Cobb must be a kid at heart, full of daring and an amazing and imaginative creative streak! Books like this will encourage young readers to learn the joy of books! Crank up your imagination, set aside your maturity, strap in and enjoy a fantastical adventure that will make you feel like a kid again!
