Gr 3-7–When a Halloween haunted house trip goes bad, Cole Randolph watches his friends get kidnapped by unknown creatures. In an attempt to save his friends, he jumps down a manhole and lands in another dimension, where he is captured and sold off to the Sky Raiders. His new life as a scout is dangerous, but not as much as when his friend Mira reveals that she holds a deadly secret about the High King, but doesn’t tell Cole the whole story. When the High King’s soldiers show up at the Sky Raiders’ skyport demanding the surrender of Mira, Cole’s only chance to save her and his friends is to escape. Will he be able to save his friends and get back home? Who is the High King and what are his plans? Narrator Keith Nobbs’s dynamic narrative style easily draws listeners into Cole’s world. With a well-developed plot and the masterful action and mystery scenes, this engaging series launch will be hard for fantasy fans to put down, particularly if they’ve enjoyed Mull’s “Beyonders” and “Fablehaven” series (both S. & S.).–Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UT
