  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2009 June #1
    Both of Paul's parents have been deployed to the Middle East, leaving Paul in the care of Grampa Peter for at least the next year. A wise elder of the Abenaki tribe, Grampa communicates a lot without saying much at all—a skill that comes in especially handy when they spend two days fighting for their lives. The threat comes from Darby Field, the nefarious producer/host of TV's "Forbidden Mysteries," who is dead-set on persuading Grampa to lead his crew of cameramen/thugs to the treasure of the mythic winged beast, Pmola. When Grampa refuses, both he and Paul are forced to head up the mountain at gunpoint, and only their wits and nearly psychic relationship will save them from the bad guys—not to mention Pmola himself, who may or may not be more than just legend. Bruchac's fast-moving tale is steeped in Indian lore that injects this otherwise straightforward thriller with a sense of meaning and even spirituality. A perfect book to gobble up in a single, sweaty sitting. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
