working for somebody. After they ditch him, they go on to
keep finding the rest of the word. Jason meets the
emperor, and tries to destroy him with the word. Will he
succeed or not? Find out be reading the book.

I really like this book. It is filled with many descriptive words
that paint the setting of the story for you. In my
opinion, the detail goes on for a little too long at
times. In the end, it leaves us wondering what is going
to happen to Rachel and Jason, but closes the plot of this
story while leaving it open for the next book. I would
recommend this book to anybody ages 8-16, although anyone
older would enjoy it too. It is a really good book that I
could not put down.
