Billy and Bonnie are resting after the action in Raising Dragons when the return of Bonnie¿s father signals the beginning of a new adventure. Can Bonnie trust the man who betrayed her mother to the slayers? The amazing scientific process of translumination creates a vibrant world inside a light-absorbing gem known as the candlestone. Want to know more? Enter The Candlestone and explore a world of danger, mystery, and sacrifice. I liked how this book emphasized faith, trust and truth. It contains a nice blend of emotions, humor and action.

This is an excellent book and it definitely ranks among my top five. It may be my favorite. The story is fabulous. The book is stuffed with humor, unique and endearing characters, oceans of peril, and the whole thing is saturated in mystery. Secrets shroud the tale. However, the author meters out the answers to those secrets carefully, just enough at a time to satisfy the reader and make him/her come back for more. I have never read books that do this so well. I highly, highly recommend Isle of Swords. -whisper

My review is a little different because I did not see the product. It is a gift for my eight year old granddaughter. I asked her mother what she would be interested in and she told me what to order for her birthday. She has just began to read the Boxcar series and I was able to find the sets at Overstock which is what I wanted for her. She was very pleased with her gift and I was pleased with Overstock and their handling of the whole thing. She lives in a differnt state then we do so I was able to have it shipped and taken care of in good time.

This book was very informative about how the series came about, who were the authors and illustrators. The book is like a scrapbook by Nancy Drew with pages dedicated to thirteen of her mystery adventures. With many flaps to open up and notes and letters that can be removed and read and put back; it is fun and interesting for any eight year old or older child. It inspires the owner to read or reread these thirteen mysteries, along with this book it would be just like they are sharing the clues and helping Nancy Drew solve the myteries. It also contains thirteen postcards, each with a picture of one of the thirteen mystery covers. I believe this book would be an immediate favorite of any Nancy Drew fan.

I love this book. It nicely fills in the mysterious little gaps in some of the Harry books, where Ron make reference to some of these stories, and Harry and Hermione are clueless, having been raised in Muggle homes. My 11 y/o grandson hasn't read the book yet, so I don't know what his opinion would be. But I'm guessing he'll enjoy it as much as I have.

I purchased these Audio CD's to help keep my Grandaughter interest in books. She struggles with reading and is behind for her age. She started out with the CD's and followed along with the books that we had purchased seperately. She played them over and over again. She just loves the stories. Before long I heard her reading the book on her own. I thought it was just from memory, but was quickly surprised that she was reading the whole book . These are all great stories read by the Author of the Books and keep kids very engaged! Since receiving these Audio CD's her reading level has jumped to steps or levels in school. I have already purchased 9-16 of the Audio CD's. Anything that helps children to love reading is a great tool. We have listened to them on short trips and the stories are easy to understand and fun to listen to. They also help you feel like you are part of the story and helping out Jack and Annie to solve the Mystery Adventures!
