Mez's Magic (The Lost Rainforest Book 1) by Eliot Schrefer

For our first review of the new year, I am proud to present my new blogging assistant in charge of middle grades reviews: my 10 year old son, Ian.  Ian loves to read and he is super excited to share his love for his new favorite book!  So, without further ado, here's Ian with his first published review!

Goodreads Blurb:
The Lion King meets Wings of Fire in the magical rainforest kingdom of Caldera in this new middle grade animal fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer.

Caldera has forever been divided into those animals who walk by night and those who walk by day. Nightwalker panthers, like young Mez and her beloved sister, have always feared daywalkers as creatures of myth and legend. Until the eclipse.

Now Mez has discovered that she can cross the Veil and enter the daylight world. Her magical power has unknown depths, but she must rush to discover it after a mysterious stranger arrives at her family’s den, bearing warnings of a reawakened evil.

Saving Caldera means Mez must leave her sister behind and unite an unlikely group of animal friends to unravel an ancient mystery and protect their rainforest home.

So for most of the book there is a light hearted feeling but it turns darker closer to the end but then it is happy at the end for the most part the whole book is shrouded in mystery. The characters are funny, smart, and quirky. The main characters are cool too Mez, the calico who doesn't know she has magic but trust me she does, Lima the happy bat, she is super happy all of the time except except when she is not, then there is the frog Rumi, the smart and nerdy frog has always does boring stuff but it pays off in the end ,then there is this monkey guy who is funny he is the comic relief. The best part is all of it!!!I am excited for the next one because of  the ending!!!!!!!

I give Mez's Magic 5 Fairies for a great read that he just could not put down!  You can find Eliot Schrefer on his website and you can add The Lost Rainforest: Mez's Magic on Goodreads.
