Book: Michael Hanson and the Desolate Woods (Powers of Ezron, # 1)
Author: E.L. Ervin
Plot: Since his birth, Michael Hanson had a golden band wrapped around his arm. Nobody could explain why and how but he had it as long as he can remember it but now as he is approaching his 15th birthday, the band is shining and even exuding an energy and aura that puzzles Michael, not knowing that his life was about to change drastically so much that the entire fate of our world was now going to rest with him.
Sugar cane story
First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book.
The book is what I would like to call A Disney Book one that comes with sweet messages and hidden moral values and is sweet and cute all along. Just like a Disney movie. I love the book for being sweet and flowy, keeping intact the book and its core plot with a good narration skill. The author definitely can weave a good story that can keep its readers entertained throughout.
The book is a clean and simple read, suitable for any ages and is devoid of anything that would make you cringe or squirm with mortification and I truly appreciate this aspect since it is difficult to find a read these days that is decent enough to hand down to a kid without having to worry that the kid is going to come back to you asking questions and even using words that would make you run for cover
What I liked in the book is the sweetness of the whole plot along with the language and the softer narration, perfect for anybody who reads this book. I also loved the illustrations at the start of each chapter. Though, What I kind of felt odd about the book was how the plot tended to magically fall into its places and sometimes even without solid, believable reasons. Also at times I felt that too much was levied upon our central characters making it a bit hard to digest or maybe I am just getting too pedantic…
The book is a sweet, simple sugary story that is absolutely clean of anything harsh or rough making it prefect for all age groups. At times it may be too sweetened but otherwise this is a quick and good story with equally strong narration and language. i would say it is a cute and charming book
