“If you can’t trust yourself, Thomas, who can you trust?”
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Fighters, Feared and Fallen, book #3 in the Boulton Quest Series, is a middle grade and young adult book. I read the first 2 books, Brothers, Bullies, and Bad Guys and Sinners, Survivors and Saints quite a while ago, but I remember liking them so I was happy to read Fighters, Feared and Fallen.
Book #3 is mostly about Thomas being abducted along with thousands of other children and taken into the future. They’re taught to fight to save the world…but are they being told the truth? I wondered since they were not treated well if the leaders were being honest. Their excuse was that they needed to harden the kids to be good fighters…but is that true? Thomas definitely learns how to fight and fight well.
I was sad to see that there aren’t any more books in the series. I understand that the author reached his goal by encouraging his children and other youngsters to read, but there are questions that haven’t been answered!
About the Author
I started to write for my son, a reluctant reader. I set out to write a series of books that captivated from the first chapter and pushed the reader through with a solid plot, relentless action and adventure, and humour.
Comments received from parents and teachers indicate I’ve accomplished my goal. I’m very proud of the Boulton Quest Series. It has captivated the hearts of reluctant readers around the world, boys and girls alike, and is entertaining their brothers, sisters, parents, and grandparents.
Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, and getting into trouble: What a great way to grow up! One of my favourite memories is sitting on the handlebars of my brother’s bike, my dog on my lap, as he careened down the steep mountain trails above our home in Kamloops, BC. My brother and I had caves, tree forts, frog filled ponds, and cactus patches to play in, and sling shots for protection. Somehow I survived my childhood and proudly moved on to fatherhood. My children, Christopher, Michael, Thomas, and Katherine, kindly donated their names, characters, and ideas to the Boulton Quest series of books.
