Title: Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Cornado
Pub Date: October 09, 2012
Truth be told. I’m not really in the mood for reading these days. Okay, okay… that’s a half-baked truth. I’m not in the mood for anything at all these days. Things are really overwhelming on my side of the world, I’m practically zombified. I feel as if I’m on a verge of a breakdown and lot of things turned me off.
Out of the sudden, I remembered that my author friend, B.K. Bostick has personally asked me if I wanted to host a blog tour for his latest book last month, and I thought, hey…I’ve completely forgotten about that, and I actually owed him a review since he had sent me the ARC of his book. (Gosh, it really slipped my mind!)
Anyway, to cut the long story short, I decided to re-read the first installment of Huber HillÂ to refresh my memories on the storyline, and read the installment of it afterwards.
I may feel melancholic before starting to revisit the characters and the story of Huber Hill , but re-reading the story gives me a thrilling effect. I fell in love with it over and over again, and I fell in love with the installment of the series, Huber Hill and The Brotherhood of Colorado. 😀
Huber Hill and The Brotherhood of Colorado emancipate me as an adult. It is pure, exciting, child-like escapism and it’s been a really, really long time since I last read something so wonderful as this. In a modern literary world that is infested with vampires, werewolves and dark tales, Huber Hill and Brotherhood of Colorado is definitely refreshing and brings back the good old feelings when I was still a child where children and YA books are never dark or infested with serious social issues. This book isÂ definitely a keeper. 😀
The story itself is an adventure with plenty of twist and turns that keep you going on and on. And by the time I reached the last page, I wished that it does not have to end there as the book brought smile to my face with the character’s antics. This book is not only action packed, but filled with mystery and a tad of playful and innocent romance as well.
Definitely one of my favorite children book so far, and I will not hesitate to recommend this book to educators, parents and children of 6 years old and above. This book deserves gleaming 5 stars for purely wonderful fun.
The Dead Manâ€™s Treasure has been stolen! When Huber receives a revelatory message from a girl in Spain regarding the treasureâ€™s location, the gang hatches a plan. Convincing their parents they are part of a study abroad program, Huber, Scott, and Hannah travel to Salamanca, Spain- an old city full of secrets.
While in pursuit of their goal, the group becomes dangerously entwined with a secret society called the Brotherhood of Coronado- a ruthless organization led by three self-proclaimed kings, bent on reacquiring the lost fortunes of the Spanish empire for nefarious purposes.
Their only hope of finding the stolen treasure and escaping the city with their lives requires trust in new-found friends and in a cloaked figure who reveals clues leading to the Brotherhoodâ€™s hiding place. But in a city of strangers, who can you trust?
With a plot that will keep you guessing, Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Coronado is a study abroad adventure youâ€™ll want to be a part of!
I received the unedited ARC of this book from B.K Bostick himself. 😀
