Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (5 ):

SEIZURE is a fun and adventurous sequel that mystery lovers will devour. Author Kathy Reich, does an incredible job combining fact and fiction. She takes the reader on a journey through the Age of Piracy and ancient Irish culture. Kids will learn a lot about Anne Bonny, female pirate, who ran her own ship and was respected as an equal to the men aboard it. They will also be introduced to lessons of law and society during the 1700s.

Reich shows young readers the monotonous process of researching important data to solve mysteries. The characters in Seizure spend a lot of time in the library, visiting museums, and interviewing experts. Some readers will find the brilliant, mystery-solving minds of the main characters implausible, but others will enjoy the ride and look forward to the final installment in the series, Code.
