The Artifact Hunters by Janet Fox - ADVISABLE

 The Artifact Hunters by Janet Fox, 371pages, Viking (Penguin), 2020; $18.

Language: G (0 swears, 0 "f"); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (war, intense battle sequences) 



 In World War II Europe, young Isaac Wolf is sent on a time traveling, magical journey by his parents to save the human and magical worlds. The Wolf’s preset a magical watch to four different times in history and placed clues by an eternity knot symbol. Isaac finds help from other Charmed Children at Rootskill Castle in Scotland. Isaac learns how to use his own magical powers while being hunted by scary, evil villains from the magical world of the Fae, waiths, magical plants, and dragons. 

It was an enjoyable read, a classic hero’s journey. The suspense was delicious. The story was clean. The imagery was vivid. Harry Potter fans would like this book. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had read The Charmed Children of Rootskill Castle, which contains the backstories of Isaac’s friends who become Artifact Hunters
