The Crown of Fire--- The New Book For Which This Turkey Is Majorly Grateful!

Stop Everything!


The latest book in The Copernicus Legacy series has just arrived! Woo-hoo! This is great!! This is really, really---wait a second. I'm getting carried away. The Iron Guy must show his usual manly restraint at the good news:

WHOOPEEE!!!!!! This is GREAT!!!!!!!!!

Ahem, this is what I had in mind:

That's more like it.

(BTW, I got that clip art picture from In all seriousness, I usually write a post around this time of year to mention things I'm thankful for. I'm doing one early because I've just received The Crown of Fire by Tony Abbott, the latest and final book in that terrific-beyond-words series by Tony Abbott. Do I seem a bit enthusiastic? You bet!  These books really are that good. You get thrills, mystery, secret relics hidden for generations, puzzling clues, a world-wide evil organization, badly-outnumbered heroes--and Galina Krause, the most despicable and fascinating villain to come along in a long time and the center of all that mystery. 

You say you haven't read any of The Copernicus Legacy books? Then what are you waiting for?? Go check them out! Now! As I said, they are that good. Start with The Forbidden Stone, the first in the series. Don't forget to check The Copernicus Files books too; they're a couple of "in-between" books that take place  between books 1 and 2 and books 2 and 3. 

Every few years an author bursts out of nowhere to surprise and delight us with a series that's new, exciting and totally unlike anything else. Rick Riordan did it first with Percy Jackson, then Phil Bildner and Loren Long gave us the Barnstormers/Sluggers books and now Tony Abbott (though he has been around quite a while) has "wowed" the world with The Copernicus Legacy. People like him keep reading fresh and fun and for that I'm very grateful.

Wait a minute---did I say this book is the final one in the series?? Awww, man! I wanted more!! 
Oh, well, the Iron Guy will take the disappointment, as he always does, like a truly MANLY MAN:

Oh, forget it! Go check out these books. You'll enjoy them a lot. And let me know how you like them.

PS--the book that you see in these photos is one that Mr. Abbott sent me himself. And he signed it! Thanks, Mr. Abbott!

Update--Today is Monday and it's the day for It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Check it out and see what other cool books people are reading.

I have some kids addicted to these books. Good addiction to have, isn't it?

Iron Guy Carl said...

Yes, indeed!

The end of a series can be the worst!!! Until you find a great new series to read, of course! :-D

Iron Guy Carl said...

This will be a hard act to follow!

I haven't read this series yet, but it sounds really great. It'll be good to have another one in my arsenal to share with kids at the library.

Iron Guy Carl said...

It is great. Be sure to read them yourself--they're that good!

Tony Abbott said...

Thanks so much, Carl! You’re review is so kind. You always make me smile! Now, to get back to the writing desk! There are so many more books to write!
