The Kerious Pye™ series recounts the adventures of an ancient Order of worldly Explorers travelling to the universe of matter.
The Seventeenth Pocket follows Explorer, Arden McGivven, on an expedition that could destroy the barrier between energy and matter. When the old voyager encounters gravely ill, fourteen-year-old Megan Carlson, he breaks his oath and reveals the Order’s secrets. Arden’s stories confound doctors, and open a mystery that crosses from this life to the next. Only Megan can solve the mystery and save the man who helped her.
Arden as a main character really drew me in. I liked that he couldn't lie and that he was so squeaky clean but that he breaks an oath to help Megan.
This is told from multiple points of view which can get a little confusing, but in the end it is great to get each characters unique perspective.
Hargus Montgomery is the author of The Last Relicuin, and The Seventeenth Pocket, part of the Kerious Pye series.
