In “The Black Cloud of Kandar,” Brian wonders why he was picked to rescue the prince. I mean, after all, he is just a cobbler, right? Wrong! Through a great and perilous adventure, Brian learns that he’s much more than a common cobbler; he’s a hero!  While saving kingdoms and rescuing princes, Brian will overcome his challenges. Or will he? With an evil sorcerer that controls a kingdom, Brian will have to have a lot of help to win this one!

“The Black Cloud of Kandar” is a brilliant book. This book contains a great adventure, ongoing suspense, and kid-friendly action – all in just 90 pages!  There was no gore or any kind of inappropriate content. The younger the reader the more this book will be liked, but this book will be liked by anybody 12 and under. I was very interested in learning what would happen at the end of this book. I couldn’t put it down because I was so gripped by the thrilling story.  There’s no reason not to read this adventure. Both boys and girls will like this book equally, though most of the main characters are boys. The writing was really good at making me want more. This is the kind of book that is perfect for young story-loving kids.

My favorite part of “The Black Cloud of Kandar” was an epic battle that decides the end of this book.
