A Zoe and Zak Adventure, Book 3
by Lars Guignard
Middle Grade Fantasy
Last semester, Zoe and Zak returned the first lost Noble Truth to its rightful home. Now, Zoe and Zak are back in India for their second semester at Moonstock Himalayan Academy. School kicks off with the Activity Week Challenge in the tiny mountain kingdom of Bhutan where the students must deliver medical supplies. Things, however, take a turn for the worse, when Zak becomes deathly ill after an encounter with a strange floating bubble. On returning to Moonstock, Zoe and Zak discover that a creature has come through the lava hole far below their dormitory. When Zoe and Zak follow the creature, they soon discover what they must do. They have been tasked with finding the second lost Noble Truth — the Tiger Eye of Justice. Finding the Tiger Eye sounds like an impossible mission, and it’s only made more confusing when Zak discovers that he has been given a supernatural power to help them with their task– a power which Zak, for the life of him, just can’t control. But he’s going to have to learn how to use his new ability, because if Zoe and Zak can’t find the Tiger Eye quickly, Zak’s time will run out.
This is the 3rd book in the Zoe and Zak Adventure series and my favorite so far. This time the characters,Zoe and Zak, must not only save others but also Zak,who's come down with a mysterious and deadly illness. The adventures are exciting, fantastic and creative as always, never leaving room for a single, dull moment.
As in the other two books, this one again takes place in India, letting the reader get a fun and informative glance into the cultures myths and customs. I especially enjoyed the deeper look into the geography in this one.
As in the other two books, Zoe and Zak get help from their 'friends' and must come behind some amazing secrets to get the job done--ones that kept my kids reading from one page to the next. Zoe and Zak develop wonderfully during all three books, and especially Zak takes on a leading role by the end.
This is a fun, interesting, informative and action packed series that I can definitely recommend to kids 8+.
I give this a. . .
