Balance Keepers: The Fires of Calderon, is a magical novel that will remind readers of works such as Percy Jackson and Harry Potter. Yet another world of fantasy is revealed, but rather than a summer camp or a European castle, this one is located in the center of the Earth. Albert Flynn, age 11, is stuck in the backwater town of Herman, Wyoming for the summer, and has little to do except sort old mail at the post office and eat TV dinners with his dad, who is rarely home during the day. However, one encounter in the woods brings him to the Core, where his father, among hundreds of other people, works tirelessly to keep the world in balance and prevent its destruction. Albert trains to be a balance keeper, and goes on a wild adventure unlike any he’s ever had before. This series shows promise as a fantasy adventure, and will leave readers amazed with its vivid imagery and fascinating worlds just waiting to be discovered.
