The Unbelievable FIB – Over the Underworld
Finding books for young readers that are both interesting and well written can be a challenge. We often rotate books that are selected by the parents and then by the child in an effort to keep up the interest in reading. However, when a series comes along that both the child and parents can agree on; it is a win – win for us.
One of these series is the Unbelievable Fantasy Investigation Bureau. This is book two in the Unbelievable FIB (Fantasy Investigation Bureau) series. Friends ABE and Pru race to stop the chain of events foretold in Norse myth to lead to Ragnarok–the war that ends the world.
It’s been a year since friends ABE and Pru joined Mister Fox’s Fantasy Investigation Bureau to save their hometown from an invasion of Viking gods and giants. Life has been incredibly ordinary ever since. Then the Norse Allfather, Odin, appears with terrible news: Baldur, his favorite son, has been murdered–the first step in a fated chain of events that leads to Ragnarok.
In this book, ABE and Pru must outrun trolls, explore Asgard and the Viking underworld, and try to outsmart the Queen herself to save the world – and survive seventh grade.
The plot is quick paced and full of twists and turns. Although it is a continuation of the first book, I was able to keep up with the current story. I am planning to go back and read the first book but I feel both can stand on their own.
Don’t have a Kindle? Grab one for yourself. They are so nice to use for reading. I love my Kindle Fire and my little one uses the e-Reader version (just for reading without the added games and internet options).
If you think you would enjoy reading the first book, The Unbelievable FIB 1: The Trickster’s Tale, it is also available on Amazon.
