“The Revenge of the Shadow King has all the ingredients that make for a great fantasy. I was hooked on the first page,” Jenny Nimmo, author of the Charlie Bones series states. This book will reach out to all children who wish to live a life of fairytales and adventure. Benz and Lewis have done a phenomenal job capturing such a remarkable fantasy and kept the readers mind wondering. From the minute you pick this book up to the time you put it down, the magic will never end. Max Sumner and his three best friends create a club named the Grey Griffins, in which they would meet and play a simple card game. This remarkable page turner begins when Max Sumner accidently unleashes a magical creature called a “Spriggan” from a book he found in his grandmother’s attic. Following this all the creatures from the card game are released and sent to wreak havoc on their small town. The book then takes off on a magical plot twisting adventure of a lifetime that will leave the reader breathless and craving more. I specifically really enjoyed how the authors made not-so-average and fantasized events more realistic and believable. If you’re one to daydream and want to fulfill that hidden fantasizing side of you, I’d recommend picking up this fascinating read.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Collectible card game mania drives this first entry in the Grey Griffins fantasy series. Eleven-year-old Max and his three friends constitute a tight-knit club called the Grey Griffins, with an enthusiasm for a card game called Round Table. When a Slayer goblin, a villain from the game, appears to Max and attacks him, he flees and, in the process, discovers a hidden room filled with books. One of the volumes turns out to be the Codex Spiritus, which holds 'perhaps one of the greatest secrets the world has ever known.' By opening the book, Max unleashes a spriggan, a mischievous shape-shifting creature-and soon other characters from the game begin to appear in the real world, leading to a battle with Morgan LaFey and the Shadow King. One of the more interesting characters is Iver, an odd fellow who owns the antique shop where they play Round Table, and who clearly knows more about what is going on with Max and the book. A mysterious connection between Iver and Max's grandfather adds a note of mystery to a tale that otherwise focuses on action. The authors borrow from both Arthurian legend and faerie lore to build their setting; though it can feel jumbled and incoherent at times, the backdrop exudes its own childlike enchantment, much like the card game at the story's center. Ages 9-12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Filled with scares, surprises, and loads of fun, this fantastic page-turner begins the saga of four friends who form a secret club called the Grey Griffins, and find themselves caught up in the dangerous quest to save their town when the wicked creatures from a card game come to life.
