The teaser on the back cover of Landon Snow and the Auctor’s Riddle says, “Open the book and take a look. But do be careful not to lean in too closely…”
I opened, and along with Landon, fell through the Book of Meanings into a world of adventure and fantasy – a world that ignites the imagination. With riddles scattered throughout, the surprises abound and the mystery deepens at every turn.
I turned the last page with reluctance, for I knew I would miss the well-developed characters and Landon Snow – a boy who looks for the meaning in everything. Did he find meaning? Is life mere chance or circumstance? Open the book and take a look.
The series may be marketed as children’s books, but the child in all of us will delight in the adventures of Landon Snow and the Auctor’s Riddle written by R.K. Mortenson. I look forward to the second and third in this trilogy.
