Thursday I’m going to be putting the spotlight on a book series and talking about it. It might be one I’ve read, one I’m reading, or one I haven’t gotten to yet, depending on what I feel like talking about that week. This week’s series has me going middle grade all the way.
The Balance Keepers series by Lindsay Cummings
All books are released, own in hardcover.
I wasn’t too sure how I would enjoy this series but I had an ARC of the first book so I gave it a try. And I absolutely fell in love with the friendship of the main three characters. It gave me Harry Potter vibes of the Golden trio. It had a lot of action and if there was an amusement park of this series, I would definitely want to go.
Favourite character: Leroy. I always have a thing for the nerdy underdog. And he grew so much through the three books.
Favourite book: The Fires of Calderon. It introduced the Core, gave us the growing friendship between Albert, Leroy, and Birdy, and showed us just how high the stakes were if they were to fail to maintain the balance of the world.
Author status: Semi-auto-buy. I do own all this author’s books and have enjoyed them but they haven’t been a need on release day, line up before the doors open kind of feeling.
Next up from Lindsay Cummings: Blood, Metal, Bone coming out in 2019, and the so far untitled sequel to Zenith, also coming in 2019.
