Review: The Blue Moon Narthex by N.J. Donner


Review:
Fun, original, and exciting, THE BLUE MOON NARTHEX is a book I have been waiting for. N.J. Donner absolutely knocks it out of the park with this one.

There is a depressing shortage of upper MG/lower YA books with male protagonists. With the exceptions of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, books aimed at adolescent males seem in short supply these days, which makes me so happy that Donner has stepped in to fill that void with Cole McCarthy.

Cole is witty, energetic, and smart as he unravels the mystery of his father. Blending action with humor and a fast moving plot that kept my attention, Donner has put himself on the map. I can't recommend this book hard enough to those looking for the void Harry and Percy left behind.

ABOUT BLUE MOON NARTHEX:
The balance of good and evil has been left in the hands of a thirteen year old...

Since the beginning of time, Karmanic matter worked silently and unassisted keeping good and evil in balance, until growing greed in the world meant Karma couldn’t keep up. As World War I rages, the secret Karmanic Sovereign Legion works behind the scenes to help Karma.

A suspicious train accident and an odd stone-shaped object that belonged to his father thrust Cole McCarthy and two schoolmates into the middle of this battle to keep dark forces in check. 

With only the powerful stone, a letter, and grandfatherly Norm to guide them, the trio must unravel clues and tap into unknown strengths to discover who Cole’s father really was and keep themselves and those they love safe.

Includes chapter 1 of book 2 in the Karmanic Sovereign Legion series!
