Review by

In Jordan and the Dreadful Golem, all children are born with powers related to their names. Jordan, named after the Jordan River, can turn into water; Eden can create from her thoughts, as in the Garden of Eden; and so on and so forth. The village of Kfar Keshet seems perfectly safe. But‚ in the forest near the town, danger is rising. Jordan and his friends are on a camping trip when they see a man hunched over a book, chanting eerily and scooping mud into a shape. But what shape? This book has a lot of tension, so I really love it. The humor is also very good, and that is another reason I would recommend it. People, read this!!!

Jordan and the Dreadful Golem

Review by Karategirl21

Jordan and the Dreadful Golem is an amazing book! I highly recommend it. It is a book with suspense. What I like about this book is the way that the author chose powers specific to their names. Jordan has water powers and Eden has the power to create from thoughts. This book has so much tension, but its humor is irreplaceable. I really recommend this book!

This was not the best book, but it wasn't too bad- it was really action packed, and I liked the premis of the story
