Reviews

I was setting up to review Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light and my 11-year-old happened to wander over and was looking over my shoulder. She was very excited after reading the blurb and begged me to buy the book for her once I was done reading it. I asked her what made her want to read it and she said "Mom, just read the blurb. A bullied boy gets transported back in time and help other bullied boys. Sounds like something I would love to read."I would have to agree with her about that. Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light was a book that I loved reading. Wonderfully written, I was taken on a journey of self-discovery and courage and Clifton realizes his worth and gets the courage to do what is right.I will admit that Clifton was a little bratty in the beginning of the book. To be honest, I thought his first interactions with Ryan were more about jealousy than being bullied and he started to annoy me....big time. But the more I read, the more I started to understand that Ryan was being a bully and my annoyance with Clifton started to fade. By the time I got to the part of the book where Clifton's parents were making him write an apology letter to the coach and Ryan, my annoyance faded and I felt bad for him.I thought that the historical fantasy part of the book was fantastic. From the minute Clifton landed in 1485 England and met Dane, I was entranced. There were dwarves, dragons, sea monsters, mermaids, a magical arrow and a magical bird who has a human face. Add in that it takes place in 1485 England with real historical people, places, and events and I couldn't get enough of it.I did have a small complaint about the modern language that Clifton used with talking to Prince Edward, Prince Richard, and Lady Elizabeth. But, then I thought about it a bit and how was he supposed to talk. He was a visitor sent back in time....how was he supposed to talk? So my little complaint ended shortly after I had that thought.The growth of Clifton in the book was great. He went from being an insecure little boy who didn't know how to deal with a bully to a confident young man who had the wisdom to know when to walk away from his bully. While the transformation was gradual, it really showed at the end of the book with the choices that Clifton made both in his life in Melbourne, Florida and in 1485 England.Speaking of the end of the book, I really liked it and I also liked that the author chose to leave it with the possibility that there could be a book 2. Which I hope there is because I can't wait to see what adventures Clifton will go on next.How many stars will I give Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light 4Why: This is a book that I would feel very comfortable letting both my 9-year-old and 11-year-old read. It has a great plot line with relatable characters.Will I reread: YesWill I recommend to family and friends: YesAge range: TweenWhy: mild violence but otherwise a very clean book. I will add a trigger warning because of the bullying scenes.**I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it*(Visit Goodreads and Amazon for more reviews)
