Arthur Penhaligon didn’t know why a strange “Crow Man” was following him and his friends around. Or why that man would break into Arthur’s house just to change Arthur’s screen saver for his computer. Or why storms keep happening whenever the Crow Man is around – it’s the middle of August and HAIL is coming down! And there is also the small matter of a big army of cats protecting the group of friends. Something strange is going on… Arthur finds himself being captured by unknown enemies and caught up in a battle between good and evil.
Don’t think this is another King Arthur story because of the name. This one is very different! I love the action in this book, and the plot was great. The characters were very good and likeable. There were a couple of instances when characters appear in the story and were not introduced to the reader right away that I found a bit confusing (like when Tamar first appeared). The book was a quick read and very appropriate for any age. The ending left me wanting more! I will be looking for the second book in the series to come out. I think the cover is good, but I wish it showed a golden sword!
