A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes - ADVISABLE

Rhodes, Morgan  A Book of Spirits and Thieves, 359 pgs.  Penguin, 2015.  $18.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (65 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.   

Crys (pronounced Kris) nosily opens a package from her aunt to her mother that contains an old undecipherable book.  As Crys and her sister, Becca, look at the book, Becca goes into a catatonic state.  Crys finds that her mom and aunt are hiding a big family secret that includes a secret society.  Crys is willing to do whatever it takes to help Becca and she finds herself interrogating a guy named Ferrell who she doesn’t know if she can trust.  Meanwhile, Becca has been thrown into another world through a different dimension, with only one guy that can see her and he has problems of his own.   

This book is told from three different perspectives-Crys, Ferrell and Becca.  I loved the story line because it has adventure, romance and mystery.  I think this is the beginning to a new series that will be just as entertaining as Rhodes Falling Kingdom series.  It does leave the ending open and I can’t wait to read more.
