Like Percy Jackson, in the Rick Riordan series, Ali Warner is more than the thirteen-year-old girl she thinks she is. And this becomes apparent when she is thrust into a journey of discovery, and a mission to save the world from an invasion of creatures we all believed were only the stuff of childhood stories and fictional folk tales.
I was apprehensive about reading this offering, because Christopher Pike is better known for his horror novels. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I would recommend this series to any of my adventure-loving friends :o)
