Great price and good plot line.
The purchase price of this book at walmart.com was much lower than its competitors, resulting in greater savings and greater value. The book has a suspenseful plot, which is aligned with similar series books from Scholastic, such as The 39 Clues and The Infinity Ring. My 10 year old loves it and is already looking forward to Book 2.

When I open a book that has a map on the first page, I tend to run screaming in the other direction, but kids who enjoy exploring mythical lands and referring to fake maps will probably get a kick out of this. This series, like 39 Clues, has a different author for each book, and there are some pretty impressive names attached (Maggie Stiefvater, Shannon Hale, Garth Nix). There is an online component, and readers are invited to log in and play the game on their computer using special codes found in the books. They do require an email address. There was a rather violent death scene at the end of book 1 (very descriptive...the words "blood" and "gurgling" were used in the same sentence), so sensitive kids might be overwhelmed by that. I almost teared up a little, and I didn't even LIKE the characters! Despite my personal dislike, I would still recommend this. Here's my review:In the land of Erdas, all children who are turning 11 participate in a ceremony where they attempt to call their spirit animal. Not all children summon spirit animals, but those who do are invited to join the semi-secret society called The Greencloaks. Greencloaks get certain powers and enhanced abilities from their spirit animals, and they're just cooler than everyone else. During this particular year, evil is brewing in Erdas and a very scary sounding creature called The Devourer is on the loose again after having been defeated many years ago. When the Devourer was originally defeated, four of the most impressive spirit animals lost their lives. When four ordinary kids summon their spirit animals in Wild Born, they happen to summon those legendary fallen spirit animals, hurtling them into the middle of a frightening war, terrifying enemies, and the mysterious Greencloaks. These four brave kids must struggle to bond with their wild and very famous spirit animals, while deciding who they can trust and who is out to deceive them. Full of action and animals, Spirit Animals Wild Born is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat! (Recommended for grades 4-6. The action and war will definitely appeal to boys, but there are cute animals and lots of girl power to keep adventurous girls interested too.) -EC

Good beginning to a promising series

Verified purchase

I admit I was a bit doubtful about this series at first; however, I also admit that after reading the first book I checked the second one out of the public library within a week. Now, about a week later, I am listening to the third book on audio. Although I was unsure in the beginning, I think this is a good series for all readers, not just juvenile. The characters are very likeable, the story is full of adventure and leaves you wishing you had a spirit animal. So far the three authors have successfully weaved the books together despite the slight change in voice (that was something I was worried about). I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next few.

Fantastic kids book series

My son found this series in the third grade. We just completed book three and he is very excited to start book four. This series is well written, very interesting story line. Has a good level of complexity... Not boring, but not too complicated. I read it with my son (he is reading right at where he should be for his grade and can read it on his own, but does not always understand everything). I find my self looking forward to reading it with him each night. My son doesn't get too excited about reading most books, but he LOVES AND CANT WAIT to read the books in this series. I highly recommend this book series for boys or girls who enjoy science fiction or fantasy books. There are 2 girls and 2 boys as the main characters, which I think helps it appeal to girls and boys.

In the world of Erdas,...

In the world of Erdas, only a rare few are able to summon a spirit animal in the way that Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan have. The bond they share with their animals is a partnership that allows them to access more-than-human abilities. The four young hero's must unite to be able to stop the Devourer from taking the peace of Erdas and the family of the four.
