Questors by Joan Lennon

Questors is an exciting fantasy book about three kids, Madlen, Bryn, and Cam, who set out on a journey to save the worlds from an energy leak. The three travel ten years into the future to find three objects of power from each of the three worlds, Trentor, Kir and Daldrodia. Unexpected events occur, and they never know when or what will set their minds astray from the job that needs to be done. They battle zombies, strangers, dragons, soldiers, storms, apples, a plane, and themselves along the way. They struggle with the tension of the new worlds because they are not used to the climates, traditions, or people of the worlds. They find several facts of the three strangers that they soon know as family. Their journey is full of heat, snow, buildings, and a huge London House.

This book contains, laughter, suspense, fun, mystery, and magic. At first, the book seems a bit confusing, but the plot soon settles down and becomes familiar. Questors contains some mild language, but includes very unique word choices. Joan Lennon’s book will please readers who want a good laugh and who like fantasy or mystery; protagonists are similar to today’s teens or preteens. Questors is very well written, and includes surprises to readers who keep thinking about the situation. Questors is DEFINITELY a page turner. This will be a big hit in stores all over the country. (I predict that.) Join the Quest by reading this book!
