I loved reading The Grave Robber's Apprentice!!! It is a great book for many reasons. Hans and Countess Angela are the two main characters and they take the reader on a grand adventure as they ride through the depths of the great forest, slide down a mountain in a coffin and sneak along the secret passageways of the archduke's palace. I was scared at times while reading it but I also laughed a lot. The author wrote an exciting, adventurous, clever, and thrilling book. I enjoyed all of the characters, some who are funny or evil and others who are just a mystery. I highly recommend this book for boys and girls, ages 10 and older.
This book is in stores now!
