    This was an interesting read and different than what I originally expected. For one, I was not prepared for the quotes from a family member at the beginning of each chapter. That was by far one of my favorite parts of this book. Definitely a cool feature!I was also unprepared for how deep the love of family would run as a theme, though I really loved it. Made this book special and made a powerful message of caring for those we love, whether through adoption or biologically. I felt a few spots were a little slow, but WOW! When you get to the action, it really takes off! Sometimes literally! Having the different fighting styles shown and mentioned was really cool too (even if I didn't know even half of them).Overall, this was a good read. I'm curious to see where things go next, and I'm especially glad that Barb and Jim will be involved. Plus, sounds like a new bad guy is somewhere out there that is wanting to be properly introduced. Recommended to those who like kick-butt heroines and a unique fantasy world mixed in with our own. (And fox people. *winks*)

    This book started out a little slow for me. I was kind of confused. There was a lot going on. Castles, centaurs, energy swords, trains, inter-dimensional portals, talking foxes...But I kept pushing because I trust the author and I knew it would pick up. And it pretty much took off at the speed of light. I read probably 70% of it in one sitting and stayed up really late to finish.Meg protects her family and she'll do anything to keep them safe. She was very down to earth and real. Danny, her younger brother is hilarious and I relate to his constant need for eating and snacking perhaps a bit too much. Jenny is a big sweetheart and I loved her unwavering faith in her family and especially in Meg.Ronnie = <3. His way of talking was a bit hard to get used to at first, but he really grew on me. Also, I have been promised Samurai and I need more about him please. Barb and Jim were great. Jim was adorably awkward and actually almost got eaten by his coat at one point... :)So I went into this story thinking it was going to be a fairly standard "find the missing parents/family" quest, but it quickly morphed into something more elaborate and crazy, and I loved it! And nothing really got wrapped up! Some things did, but there are waay too many mysteries left out there. And of course the ending. :oEach chapter from the Mitchell's POV has quote from their dad, and it added a really neat personal touch. Some of my favorite quotes are from the chapter headings.I highly recommend this book. The plot is twisty and turny and the characters are all relateable and real. There's some awesome fantasy/sci-fi going on, smashed together with an epic adventure in modern day San Francisco and Texas. (ALSO! When they go to Texas, they go to Odessa which is basically my hometown! So it was super fun to see west Texas highlighted in an accurate manner, and the Odessa jackrabbits. lol!) It's all about family and doing whatever it takes to protect each other, even when someone's not blood related, and that's my favorite kind of story.So go read this book. The only thing you will probably regret is staying up super late like I did. I really enjoyed it, and I know I for sure would have loved it as a teenager. And I have many questions, so I can't wait for A. the Samurai story I know is coming, and B. the next book in the series. :)

    I’m always looking for a fun young adult novel to enjoy. Meg Mitchell & the Secret of the Journals by Kimberly McNeil is a fantastic Christian Fiction novel that I enjoyed. It started off very slow so I had trouble getting hooked in the beginning, but it had a lot of explaining to do. The author has non-stop action that makes the read enjoyable and fun. I would probably recommend this for older kids because there is quite a bit of violence throughout the novel, but nothing too over the top.The story is unpredictable, engaging, and leaves you wondering different things throughout. I loved how the author didn’t tell us everything at once. She made us keep guessing. I also enjoyed her worldbuilding and sense of mystery. I’m hoping that we’ll learn why the Mitchell children are so important and what really happened to their parents in later books.Overall, I enjoyed this. I’d recommend this one.Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Meg Mitchell and the Secret of the Journal by: Kimberly McNeal, is the first book in what is sure to be an epic YA fantasy series.If you were a child growing up in the nineties then you knew that the best TV shows aired before the crack or dawn on Saturday mornings. This novel reads like a love letter to those marvels of storytelling. First we have the young heroes: Meg, Danny, and their little sister Jenny. These three are from a wonder-filled fantasy land on the other side of an inter-dimensional rip. But they may have family here in our world. Once on this side of the rip they quickly find trouble in the form of a super criminal named Phoenix Munroe, who likes to leave clues for two teenage detectives named Barb and Jim. Where in the world could that have come from. ;-D In addition there may be vigilante samurai, secret assassin training, and mysterious Jedi storytellers. The Legend of the Lightkeepers promises to be an enjoyable series with witty and complex characters. Not just a novel for children but for anyone who remembers getting up at six am on Saturdays just to see stories that your parents promised would rot your mind. They did anything but right?If Meg Mitchell was a cartoon, I would totally get up at six am on a Saturday just to see what happens next.

    I love this book!The characters are so vivid, susceptible, and real, I found myself feeling as if they were my best friends.The book has a stupendous plot line, with tons of epic action, clever fight scenes, and witty lines. It's gritty, but the author did an outstanding job of being realistic (not veiling the fact that there is depravity in the world) without glorifying the wrongs.The thrill, the mystery, and the endearing characters have worked together to make this book one of my favorites ever.
