Two cousins and one mysterious adventure make for a suspenseful story that middle grade readers will love. The Eye of Midnight, by Andrew Brumbach, is a book my ten-year-old son finished in 24 hours. This book comes out March 8th. Here’s my son’s review:
William and Maxine are practically strangers, even though they share the same grandfather. Will is brave and likes living on the edge. Maxine is clever and tends to be cautious. Their grandfather, Colonel Battersea is always getting into one scrape or another.
Will and Maxine have to work together to save their grandfather — and the world.
Secret passages, dark mysteries, exotic taxidermy, a wooden genie that speaks Arabic; step into Battersea Manor and prepare for adventure. The Eye of Midnight will not disappoint!
