The first thing I do when I come across a middle-grade book for review is to ask my 12-year old son if he would read it. After seeing the gorgeous book cover, book trailer and interactive website for Sunborn Rising, my son was very interested in reading this book with me. After all, he is the intended audience, so I was pleased, mostly because he is also a reluctant reader.

Kudos to the author and his team at Neoglyphic Entertainment for creating a fun adventure book suitable for the whole family along with its interactive website!
