As Happenstance opens his unique eyes, he realizes that he has no memory. Not knowing who he is or any details of his life, he ventures off with an interesting group of three: the explorer Umber, is the leader; Sophie is a timid archer; and Oates is a man who is both strong and honest. They leave for Kurahaven, Umber's home city, to relax. When they arrive, however, Happenstance finds that an evil force is after him. Umber was told in a mysterious note to keep Happenstance by his side and to watch the boy's powers grow. Will Umber learn why there is someone after Happenstance? Can Happenstance find his true identity?
Happenstance Found is a fantasy/adventure book. The story is well-written and could be read by a range of people. Although the vocabulary is somewhat scholarly, an avid reader may find the word choice too basic. This makes the book a quick read, and it is definitely a worthy one. I commend Catanese for the unique storyline. The main pieces of the story were intense and kept my attention until the next action occurred. I recommend Happenstance Found for any fantasy lover who is between the ages 10-18.
