Read full description of the books:I just couldn't do it. I was skimming by the midpoint of chapter 1. I found the writing barebones, to the extent on one page characters find themselves in three dire circumstances in a row and I was still going, "Wait. Who are these kids and why in the world do I care if they survive or not??? And wait a minute, ANOTHER thing just got thrown at them...but I'm still trying to process that the authors just threw two other things at them in lackluster style with no supsense or buildup or... Hold on. How old are these authors? Are you sure I'm not reading a middle schooler's homework for marking?" Made me feel like I did the reader's equivalent of biting into a great looking piece of fruit only to find out it was made of wax.
Also, I did not know that this was a tag-on series. In fact, I don't think they did any justice in putting a #1 on this book. It evidently picks up right where the previous Grey Griffins series ended, and they expect you to already know all the characters and what they've previously been through. I felt like I was being introduced by a reluctant 2nd grader. 'Mom said I have to introduce you. So these are my friends Bobby, Billy and Susie. They're super cool. Ok, you know each other. Now, lets go play!'
Maybe someday I'll try reading the REAL first book in the series and then reevaluate this, but I'm in no hurry.
Read information about the authorBorn in the wrong place, and unquestionably the wrong time, Derek Benz spent most of his early years trying to figure out where he was and why he was different than everyone else. By the age of five, he had stumbled upon the answer: the rest of humanity was really nothing more than an elaborate hoax of cleverly disguised robots, and he was the only real human among them. Having overcome that mystery, he set out with other young members of the Grey Griffins (a super-secret club) to protect the world from darkness and bring about a better world through friendship, wit, and superbly-made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
He's climbed volcanoes in the Ring of Fire, fished for sharks in the North Atlantic, scandalized the Cathedral of Barcelona, been mauled by an angry kitten off the coast of Turkey, narrowly avoided being blown up outside Belfast, learned the meaning of defenestration in France, and even jumped off a few cliffs in Greece. His interests spanned a wide spectrum: archaeology, linguistics, mythology, cosmology, conspiracy theory, religion and a host of others. At the same time, he managed to catapult himself to the top of his game in a Fortune 100 company doing what some idly speculated to be nothing less than international computer espionage.
But there was always the desire to change the world around him. And since the age of fifteen, he had become obsessed with writing as a means to this end. Year after year, he labored to prefect his craft, until he felt the time was right. In 2000, he teamed up with J.S. Lewis and with an eye to the stars, they launched The Revenge of the Shadow King.
Benz met and married his lovely wife and son in sunny Arizona, where they enjoy researching ancient civilizations and studying theology.
