(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)


about book: (summary from Goodreads)

Myths and monsters collide with climate chaos in a thrilling fantasy adventure.
Spring has arrived in Brooklyn, New York, but winter refuses to let go. Sleet, snow, and even a tornado batter the city. Mr. Ross, the science teacher, believes climate change is the cause, but classmates Edward, Feenix, Danton, and Brigit suspect older, magical forces are at work. When a peculiar character calling himself Superintendent Tiltersmith appears with a keen interest in the foursome, their suspicions are confirmed, and they’re swept up in a battle of wits and courage.

The friends must protect a set of mysterious tools belonging to the Lady of Spring. If they can free her from her underground prison, winter will end. But if the Tiltersmith steals the tools, he will keep the Lady in his power and upset the balance of nature forever.

Perfect for readers of Madeleine L’Engle and Susan Cooper, The Tiltersmith returns to the world of Amy Herrick’s acclaimed Time Fetch in a timely, exciting stand-alone adventure.

my thoughts:

What a fun story! I just loved The Tiltersmith by Amy Herrick. It was chock full of magic and adventure  - the kind where you have to step up and be a hero or the world as we know it will end. Talk about the perfect spring break read!

In Brooklyn, New York the season of spring has finally arrived. However, winter seems to have forgotten and continues to cover the city with snow and sleet. Four middle-schoolers named Feenix, Brigit, Danton, and Edward believe they know the cause of the relentless winter weather and its not climate change, despite what their science teacher will have you believe. Nope, they believe it's all down to magic. And their suspicions are proved correct with the arrival of a new nemesis - Superintendent Tiltersmith. Yep, he's got his eyes on the foursome and it's not looking good for any of them. As they dig deeper trying to figure out who Superintendent Tiltersmith really is and what has happened to spring, the foursome soon find themselves entangled in a magical battle that will test them like never before. 

Wow! Herrick has created a fantastical story that will entertain and engage you all the way through. You won't be able to put this book down for anything. It's just so much to read and get lost in. I absolutely enjoyed every minute I spent with these characters and their magical adventures. What a fun treat!

I would happily recommend The Tiltersmith by Amy Herrick to fans of her work and to anyone looking for their next great read - you won't want to miss out this dazzling adventure story! Check it out!
