Book 1 - Secret of the Spiritkeeper
This is where it all starts with a mysterious murder, a magic sphere and ancient ruins! When Kellach's teacher is found nearly dead, the three kids have to find out what happened and save the day. It's an easy read full of adventure, running from horrible monsters, scary moments and lots of bravery. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of fantasy stories.

Book 2 - Riddle in Stone
Kellach, Driskoll and Moyra get in trouble again as they investigate sudden disappearances, Moyra's sick dad, and a mysterious stranger in town. This story has a lot of really cool sneaking around, puzzle solving and desperately trying to outsmart dangerous people and creatures. It's a great story of the kids getting in over their head to save the day again. There's even a creature from Greek legend in this story!

Book 3 - Sign of the Shapeshifter
Ok, major problemo in this book. There's a bunch of really cool stuff going on in Curston and, when Kellach, Driskoll and Moyra get involved it sounds like an ancient enemy of the Knights of the Silver Dragon is back. Suddenly, the book nosedives when the kids go out and start killing things, including people-ish monsters, on purpose. It's majorly bad mojo, especially since they're 12-14 years old and doubly so 'cuz the authors could have found another way to save the day. Lame. Give this one a miss.
