Ring of Five, Book 1


“Would somebody explain to me where I am?”

“Wilsons,” Les said. “I told you.”

“But what is Wilsons?” Danny felt his voice rising.

“An academy of the devious arts,” Brunholm said.

With this exchange Danny begins to find out where he has been dropped off by

the taxi driver. In this first book of the Ring of Five trilogy the reader is introduced

to the occupants of Wilsons as well as the underworld in which it is located. This

fantasy world is filled with conflicting loyalties, spies, intrigue, and a contest for

control of both the under and upper world (our world).

Pulled between the friendships and loyalty he feels toward Wilsons and the

power offered to him by the Ring, Danny must pick between good and evil if

he can figure out which group represents which quality or if there is a clear line

between the two.

While not perfectly written, this series will gather fans among tweens and early

teens. Lots of action and adventure is mixed with a fast paced story telling. A

perfect series for those who liked Percy Jackson, Charlie Bone, The Mysterious

Benedict Society, Artemis Fowl or the Nightmare Academy series; Cherub series by Muchamore

Sequels:  Ghost Road; Unknown Spy
