“Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers” by Lee Edward Fodi is a wonderful book full of adventure and interesting twists that will capture the attention of anyone, young and old! Although this is a book series written for young people, as a middle-aged adult, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story about a young adventurer.
The author did a great job of creating interesting characters with fun personalities. Kendra, the heroine, is a very likeable young lady, and I found myself rooting for her and her group of adventurers throughout the book. There are some characters with spunk and sarcasm, adding humor to the story. The book had interesting turns that made me want to keep reading more and more. The adventure they take has danger and suspense, but it is not so scary as to frighten younger children. I really enjoyed taking this journey with Kendra and her friends, and couldn’t put the book down until I finished it.
There is a great message in this story as well, and I was pleasantly surprised by the turns in the story. Kendra and her friends have to face their fears, and this story presents a powerful lesson for everyone to take in and learn from. I know that I was inspired by this story and I am very eager to read more books by Lee Edward Fodi.
I highly recommend “Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers” by Lee Edward Fodi to children and adults interested in adventure stories. This book is a heartwarming journey of young Kendra and her friends and family that will captivate anyone who opens the cover! There are several books about Kendra Kandlestar and I plan to read them all!
