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

Happy reading!
