This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#129 Pillage by Obert Skye


A decent book. Beck's mother dies, and he's sent to live with his rich but eccentric uncle. He rarely sees his uncle, and is looked after by the loyal family retainers, who mostly leave him to his own devices - which means he spends most of his free time exploring the parts of the mansion he's been told to stay out of.
Of course, this means he eventually discovers his family's dark secret - they can manipulate plants. Oh yeah, and there are dragons.
Some good plot twists and turns, and the characters were (mostly) likable. There was a little bit of teen romance, but it's not shoved down your throat like in some books. Pleasantly free (mostly) of teen angst, too.
This was in my library's young adult section, but I think a lot of juvenile readers would find it easy to read, as well.
