About the Book

Dark Mystery
Ancient Prophecy
Family Secrets

When a loud, incessant knocking disturbs the peace at Gregson Manor, David and Rosie once again travel through the mysterious portal, where they encounter darkness, chaos and impossible impossibilities.

Only by fulfilling an ancient prophecy and uniting unlikely allies can they save parallel universes.

A dormant sun awaiting new dawn,
Two stolen sons their mothers mourn.
One will wake from whence they laid,
The other repeats a mistake once made.

​Who are the sons?   
My Review

Jack Gregson & the Stolen Sons is Book Two of a Trilogy. When I picked up the book to read, I missed this detail. Honestly, the author does a beautiful job re-introducing characters and relationships--and catching readers up on the essential adventures of the first book. I would certainly recommend reading the first book first. This book takes readers on new adventures, introduces new characters, revisits old scenes--and leaves readers with some loose ends for the third book. While you don't necessarily need to read the first book--I wanted to read about the referenced pieces from that first book!


Jack Gregson & the Stolen Sons if Perfect for Middle-Grade Readers. With a Harry Potter-like feel, the author brought magic and drama and some family secrets together--all while keeping his trio of magical heroes (and a heroine) tweens and teens. There is a lot of humor tossed in with action-adventure and mishaps. It will entertain and hold the interest of its target audience. It's also a fun read for parents!


Would I Recommend Jack Gregson & the Stolen Sons by Peter Wilson? This book is a fun, fantasy with an air of mystery perfectly written for middle-grade readers. I love that it is a pretty clean read and doesn't take the kid stars too far beyond their years. I would definitely recommend reading the series in order. It is a fun, easy series for middle-grade readers who enjoy the mishaps, humor, and suspense of books like Harry Potter.
