Pillage by Obert Skye - ADVISABLE

Skye, Obert. Pillage. 312 pages. Shadow Mountain, 2008.

Language: G, Violence: PG, Sexual Content: G.


When Beck Phillips’ mom dies, he is sent to live in Kingsplot with his eccentric uncle who spends most of his time in a tower. As time goes on, Beck discovers that dragons really do exist and live within the grounds of his uncle’s house. He also discovers that not everyone in his uncle’s house or the surrounding areas can be trusted. With the help of some friends and an ability to make things grow, Beck must discover who he can really trust and how to stop the dragons from destroying the town of Kingsplot.

Not a real fast action story until towards the end, but the author does a great job of keeping you wanting to turn the page. His mystery will enthrall readers and keep them wanting to know Beck’s family’s past has as well as wondering what characters can be trusted. A great story for mystery and fantasy lovers alike.
