The Three Thorns (The Brotherhood and The Shield #1)The Three Thorns by Michael Gibney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gibney has written an exciting fantasy adventure sure to keep younger readers turning pages and talking about their newest favorite book, with clever wording and colorful descriptions to keep easily distracted minds focused on the story. My son (10) and I enjoyed reading passages out loud to each other. More than once I caught him smiling as he read and not once did he put the book down on our trip. He says he likes the creativity in the story and wants to read more. We hope to eventually get a copy for our local library. We received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced our opinion.
