An epic middle grade supernatural adventure series, soon to be a major movie starring Marsai Martin. Perfect for readers aged 8+ and fans of Percy Jackson, Nevermoor and Men in Black!
Amari Peters knows three things.
Her big brother Quinton has gone missing.
No one will talk about it.
His mysterious job holds the secret . . .
So when Amari gets an invitation to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, she’s certain this is her chance to find Quinton. But first she has to get her head around the new world of the Bureau, where mermaids, aliens and magicians are real, and her roommate is a weredragon.
Amari must compete against kids who’ve known about the supernatural world their whole lives, and when each trainee is awarded a special supernatural talent, Amari is given an illegal talent – one that the Bureau views as dangerous.
With an evil magician threatening the whole supernatural world, and her own classmates thinking she is the enemy, Amari has never felt more alone. But if she doesn’t pass the three tryouts, she may never find out what happened to Quinton . . .
Amari and the Night Brothers is a wonderful book with action, adventure and magic.
A great children’s book however I found this enjoyable too.
Quinton Peters a golden child earning full scholarships to Ivy League schools, which is incredible considering his upbringing. On his disappearance his younger sister Amari believes something has happened to her beloved brother.
Looking into his cupboard Amari discovers a briefcase hiding many secrets. She is lead to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs where she finds out that supernatural beings are everywhere and clearly not make believe.
Amari is a likeable character. She has faced oppression and bullying but wants to achieve her goals. She joins a training programme at the Bureau to become a junior agent and it seems the popular children she despised at her old school are also present at the Bureau.
A great plot, an exciting read.
B. B. Alston lives in Lexington, SC. Amari and the Night Brothers is his debut middle grade novel. When not writing, he can be found eating too many sweets and exploring country roads to see where they lead.
My passion is helping others to find their own oasis, their own centre of calm.
