Five Reasons Why I'm Excited To Read The Fires of Calderon By Lindsay Cummings And Why You Should Read It Too

Monday, 22 September 2014
The Balance Keepers #1 - The Fires of Calderon comes out tomorrow and to celebrate, I've going to list five reasons why I'm excited to read this books, and why you should read it too! Here we go!

1. It has a map. If a book has a map, that usually means it's going to be a good book. And to prove it to you, I'm going to give you a list of books that all have maps that I think are amazing:
  • Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
  • Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore
  • Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
  • Renegade by J. A. Souders
As you can see, good books have maps (especially fantasy ones).

2. The Balance Keepers have superpowers called Tiles. Let me break it down for you: superpowers = magical/special abilities and magical/special abilities = awesome.

3. There is a dragon (at least I think that's what it is) on the cover. I love dragons.

4. It sounds like something a Percy Jackson fan (such as myself) would enjoy.

5. It's written by Lindsay Cummings and she is awesome! She's so funny and talented that if you haven't checked out any of her books yet, you are seriously missing out. You can follow her on InstagramTwitterYouTube, or her website.

The link to book's goodreads page is here.

***Also I have plans to read one of her books for the October read along, so be sure to look out for that.***

See you all soon!

Book Information:

Summary: The first book in an epic middle grade fantasy adventure series that takes place in an underground society at the center of the earth. Packed with action, humor, magic, and mystery.

After following a mysterious map into the woods and then under the woods, eleven-year-old Albert Flynn learns he’s a Balance Keeper—someone with special magical skills for fixing problems in three underground Realms at the Core of the earth. His new job is important; if the realms fall out of balance, the world above could be in great danger.

Albert and his Balance Keeper teammates Birdie and Leroy arrive in the Core not a moment too soon. There’s an Imbalance in the Calderon Realm and it’s threatening to bury Albert’s hometown of New York City in a mountain of ash.

The three must train hard completing mental and physical challenges, but above all, they must harness the power of their Tiles—unique superpowers given to each Balance Keeper. So far, Albert’s mastered the art of not mastering his Tile....

With the situation in Calderon growing worse every day, can Albert, Leroy, and Birdie restore balance before New York is destroyed forever? Will Albert master his Tile before it’s too late?

Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson, The Unwanteds, and the classic Journey to the Center of the Earth.
