Review: The Stone of Valhalla


The Stone of Valhalla

Four Stars!

The Stone of Valhalla is targeted at 8 to 12 year olds and Mr. Brooks has done a wonderful job of pulling them in.

The story starts off with 13 year old Aaron standing outside an elderly woman’s house and contemplating his life.  He’s a loner with no friends to speak of, four older brothers who always get to do everything first and parents whom he loves very much.  He’s also thinking about exactly why he’s standing outside Mrs. Timble’s house:  he’s supposed to steal something valuable so he can be part of the ‘in’ crowd.

Aaron manages to get into Mrs. Timble’s basement and does find something he believes is valuable but before he can make good on his escape the light comes on and someone starts coming down the stairs.  The lights miraculously go out and he manages to hide in an old root cellar where he finds something even more valuable.

Follow Aaron as he is transported from his known reality to a totally different reality where he is mistaken for a witch and taken to be burned at the stake, to his rescue and go along for the adventure as he makes friends and discovers that he is one of three who is destined to save that reality.

If your children are reluctant readers because they can’t seem to find something that grabs their attention this might just be their ticket to a world we all love:  reading.

I write fanfiction for Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood. I pre-read/edit/beta others stories and I am attempting to get myself out of a rut and back into life rather than sitting here contemplating a blank page.
