    This was a fun book Solid Middle Grade characters and kids will probably love this book The story started out with Aaron sneaking into a house to steal something as an initiation into a gang That bothered me, given the fact Aaron seemed to be an intelligent kid He should have listened to his inner voice and not gone in But if he hadn t, then we wouldn t get to go see the fun world of magic in Valhalla Mikey did a great job with plot twists and doing some unexpected things I was able to catch on [...]

    Absolutely love Mikey Brooks books I schedule time to read them and he never disappoints He has the rare storytelling gift and an ability to focus in on exactly what his intended readers would be thinking as they read the book There s only one way for that to happen Mikey has never fully grown up Of that I m certain.Aaron is a kid trying to fit in He s almost old enough for high school and wants desperately to be in a gang In order to meet the expectations of the leader he has to steal something [...]

    Stone of Valhalla is a classic children s fantasy about a boy transported into a different world, but Mikey Brooks manages to breathe fresh life into the idea His characters are fun, the story has a few twist and turns, but one of my favorite parts were the different interesting locales Brooks details The city of Rivera, especially, with its volcano and super heated river was a fascinating spot Usually the towns in such fantasy stories are one variation of a consistent town market, inn, etc but [...]

    This book was one of those books that you begin reading and immediately become absorbed in the characters and the story taking place It s hard to put down from start to finish as it takes you on a journey from our world to one of great mystery.Although the Stone of Valhalla is a solidly written middle grade fantasy book, it can easily be enjoyed by any age The author writes his characters so that they are not dumbed down in any way making the book a smartly written, sharp witted, adventure You a [...]

    The Stone of Valhalla is a fun read and I really enjoyed going on the adventures with Aaron, Bran and Rosella Finding good friends can be a difficult thing at Aaron s age When he decides to break into Mrs Timble s house and steal something just so that he can be in Jesse s gang, he gets much than he bargained for To avoid being caught he tries to hide and instead is transported to another world where magic, danger, imps and friendship await He faces his fears, has his heart broken, is betrayed [...]

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.What a great story This seems to be suited for boys age 10 and up, but I think anyone can fall in love with this story The author has such a descriptive quality that you can picture every scene vividly and feel like you are there The rafters each add a little to the story and the turns the story takes gives you a magical ride Definitely could see this playing in a movie theater

    Stone of Valhalla is a fun adventure book I enjoyed the story so much that my kids wanted to read it My seven year old just finished and loved it You know a book is good when the reader gets upset about a scene so much they are asking you how it ends and if the scene really is what it seems A fun read for all ages.

    This is a fun and sometimes intense middle grade fantasy with great descriptions that make the author s interesting world come alive The well drawn main character pulls the reader into his adventure from the first scene and makes the reader care very much what happens to him.
