Taylor Davis didn’t want to move to the Caribbean. He didn’t want to have his school cheeseburger stolen by a girl six inches taller than him named Elena. He also didn’t want to save the world with Elena, an eccentrically dressing guardian angel, and a pink handbag to hold the most important sword in the world. Taylor didn’t have much of a choice. He got that sword after he met the immortal Davy Jones falling in to a pit that swallowed up Elena. Davy Jones gave Taylor the sword and told him it is a flaming sword that guards the Tree of Life in the garden of Eden, but the flame has gone out because of a terrible mistake made by his guardian angel. Taylor has to find the smith that made the sword and relight it. Taylor, Elena and their guardian angels set out on a dangerous mission to save the world.  He must also stop the evil Bartholomew Swain (a horrible pirate who ate a rotten piece of fruit from the Tree of Life) from finding Taylor and Findul and taking over the world.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It is so action-packed! The plot is totally unique, I am amazed at how authors can come up with such cool story ideas.. The characters are very realistic. I like Taylor a lot – he acts a lot like a normal boy would act under these circumstances. That makes him very real to me. I like the plot a lot and how it has angels and Davy Jones mixed in. 😉  I also like how Mrs. Isenhoff has a religious twist to the story, but it is totally an action adventure plot. Mrs. Isenhoff’s book are totally clean and appropriate for all ages. I like how Mrs. Isenhoff writes with a bunch of humor in her stories. I think humor in kids books, especially ones that have tense parts, is a great thing to do. I think kids of any age would love this! This is one of those books I think would make a GREAT movie (no never mind – the movie is never as good as the book 😉 ).

I give this book five out of five bookworms and am adding it to my Erik’s Favs shelf!fivebooks

    Thanks, Erik! I’m glad you had fun with this one. It was a blast to write. (Mostly imagination, very little research.) 🙂

      That’s what I like – “Mostly imagination, very little research”! That’s one reason I write fantasy/fiction/sci-fi. 😉

    Great review Erik! I have her novel, but haven’t started reading it yet. I love Michelle’s storytelling and have read everything that she has written. Thanks for not giving too much away. Just finished another MG, so hope to start this soon.
