The Six

This new middle grade fantasy series will sure capture your imagination. It is described as Chronicles of Narnia meets Harry Potter with a dash of The Last Airbender. It is one of those tales that once you start reading it you won't want to put it down.

Darcy Pennington hates her life. She is an insufferably average teenager with no real friends, crushing social anxiety, and an indescribable sense of not fitting in anywhere. A change in her dad’s job forces her to attend Cedar Cove Family Camp the summer before her eighth-grade year, and Darcy once again finds herself on the outside of a social circle of teenagers, with her only advocate being an awkward girl named Samantha Palm. The only problem is, Darcy has no desire to be friends with her, but as the hostility from the other teenagers increases, she decides to return the friendship.

When Darcy begins to experience strange magical occurrences, she comes to believe she’s either losing her mind or on the brink of a discovery that could give her purpose in life. After unwittingly stumbling through a magical gateway to a new world called Alitheia, she convinces Sam and the other four teenagers to travel there with her, and despite their earlier hostilities toward her, they eventually concede leadership of their small group to Darcy. Once there, they learn the “arrival of the Six” was prophesied hundreds of years before, and that they must expel an ancient evil from the land. In the end their lives, and the fate of Alitheia, will hinge upon Darcy. Will she have what it takes to fulfill her mysterious purpose? Or will she fall prey to a deadly foe?

    1. Glad we got your approval and thanks for the hook up!

  2. Thanks for reviewing this book. I began reading the series when I was introduced to The Six and have eagerly anticipated the release of each next installment. Great book; great series!

    1. Didn't review it nut since you guys have been raving about it, i just might read it lol

  3. I started reading the book, certain I wouldn't like it. I'm so glad I was wrong! I was immediately pulled in to Darcy's character, and couldn't put the book down if I tried. I love how Hoyle really fleshes out all of the main characters, so the reader knows them as if they were real. I'm not ashamed to admit I miss having Darcy & the others in my life, and can't wait for the next installment!

    1. I feel like it's too juvenile for me to really appreciate it but from the looks of it, it sounds like it's one of those books that appeals to children of all ages.

  4. I haven't heard of this series. I may just give it a read. Sounds like everybody is liking it.

    Thanks for sharing:D
