The Secrets of the Castle by author Aaron M. Zook is a mystery action adventure story that is great especially for tween boys. The two brothers and their dogs, Thunder and Lighting, find themselves in the Neuschwanstein castle, in Germany in the year 2012. On vacation with their parents and friends, strange things begin to happen to them. Due to too many coincidences, the brothers do all they can to become sleuths to help their father, who is in the military, investigate. Although these things are happening, the family still tries to have a normal vacation. However, things begin to escalate as threatening messages are found, kidnapping, and secret passages are discovered. With a nemesis that has an overarching story line, this book ends well leading into the next in the series which promises to be just as exciting. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
