Jacob is chased into a tree and finds himself in a different world. He is sent on a quest with a young Makalo, Akeno, to take back the key of Kilenya from the evil Lorkons. In the process, he discovers he has magical powers and is the one the Makalos have been waiting for.
I read The Key of Kilenya to my 8 and 10 year old boys and before we finished it, they both wanted to know if there were more books in the series. It is very well written and has lots of exciting action. As is often the case with fantasy books, it is a little bit confusing at first trying to figure out the world it is set in. I highly recommend this book to families with kids. It makes an excellent read-aloud!
