N. D. Wilson, author of Leepike Ridge and 100 Cupboards, returns with an action-packed adventure that will captivate fans of both Percy Jackson and Indiana Jones with lost civilizations, ancient secrets, and buried treasure.

For two years, Cyrus and Antigone Smith have run a sagging roadside motel with their older brother, Daniel. Nothing ever seems to happen. Then a strange old man with bone tattoos arrives, demanding a specific room.

Less than 24 hours later, the old man is dead. The motel has burned, and Daniel is missing. And Cyrus and Antigone are kneeling in a crowded hall, swearing an oath to an order of explorers who have long served as caretakers of the world's secrets, keepers of powerful relics from lost civilizations, and jailers to unkillable criminals who have terrorized the world for millennia.

    At first I didn’t like this book one bit. I thought it was super boring, and had way too much description, the only thing keeping me reading it was the fact that I wanted to do a review on the book for Dogo Books. But after about the first 100-150 pages or so the story started to pick up and get better. The Dragon’s Tooth is about Cyrus and Antigone Smith trying everything they can to find their brother Daniel. Daniel was kidnapped the night after a crazy old guy named William Skelton comes to their motel one day and makes Cyrus and Antigone take an oath swearing their allegiance to the Order Of Brendan. He also gives Cyrus a key chain with a small silver key, a slightly bigger golden key, two other little trinkets, and a tooth in a silver sheath. Along with the key chain William Skelton gives Cyrus a silver snake. After that what happens next is pretty good, it even got me wanting to know what happened next in the second book.

      I usually don't like fantasy books, but this story was actually really cool. I love N.D. Wilsons books, and this is the first of a series I'd love to continue.
