The Rock of Ivanore by Laurisa White Reyes
Find the mythical rock that can build up kingdoms. This is the task that the city of Quendel has given Marcus, an orphan, along with the other 14-year-old boys in the city, Jerrid, Zody, Clovis, and Tristan. They must venture through dangerous terrain, cross the country, and fight odd creatures to get to the rock. However, they aren’t the only ones who want the rock; there are dangers from over the sea that also want the rock of Ivanore, and are willing to kill for it. So what happens to Marcus on this quest? Find out in this amazing book!
I believe that the author’s purpose was to provide an interesting adventure story, and I believe they achieved it. The book not only had a great story, but the plot keeps you interested with some unexpected twists. The story keeps you guessing, and you never know the end until the end. I would recommend this to anyone that appreciates a certain amount of suspense in their reading material, and anyone who likes adventure stories. I personally enjoyed this book.
