Wonderful, magical, hilarious and thought-provoking. Those are just a few words to sum up Matt Monroe and The Secret Society!
Matt Monroe is your average kid next door. That is, until he finds a set of wooden tablets and an onyx ring in a box that belonged to his Grandpa. When strange creatures start crawling around in town, it's up to the Secret Society to reveal themselves. Unlike anything Matt ever expected, the Secret Society talks about a mysterious world, Paragon, totally unlike their own, where a wicked elf wants to destroy the world.
What begins for Matt and his friends, is the adventure of a lifetime. In the same way as Harry Potter brought magic to life, so does this book. The writing was great, the characters were amazing, and Matt is a great hero.
I was glad to hear there will be more books in the series. I hope I'll get the chance to read and review them as well!
