One of the first fantasy books I ever read, recommended for fans of middle-grade. Although the writing is simple and fast-paced, some of the plots are pretty predictable and cliched.

This is a story that takes place in the same time period(2009). The Stones lure Fischer to them and he steals one from The Keepers (whom keep the stones safe). He learns his action has a consiquence that will change his life forever.

A decent read, but not amazing. The writing is a little forced, and the characters don't really flow naturally together.
