Twelve-year-old Miles Wednesday goes on an expedition to reunite with his inherited Tigers Egg that was stolen from him by The Great Cortado and Doctor Tau-Tau. Miles, Little Softwing, and Baltinglass of Araby go through the hot desert and over the ocean in an air ship that gets set on fire. Through the whole story Miles meets with family he never knew, learns how to use his gifts (the Far Eye and the Bright Hands) and reunites with his long lost father. Meanwhile Silverpoint (a Storm angel) tries to help save Miles life from Bluehart (a Sleep angel). When Miles some how keeps on getting out of his grasp, Stillbone (another Sleep angel) helps Bluehart to end Miles, for good. Bluehart has a devious plan to rule the whole world, what is his plan? And will he succeed? Will there be a happy ending? Or will it all end up badly?

The Lightning Key was amazing! Jon Berkeley did a great job with the ending and the writing through the whole story. Any age will enjoy this book, the readers will love the adventure and the little bit of comedy that was in there. I know I did. Baltinglass and Silverpoint were the best parts of the book for me. They were both the most serious and funniest characters I ever read about. I mean who would like to get hit by lightning the third time? Thats like crazy, even with a copper helmet on! Even though that was stupid, it was very entertaining at the same time.

The Lightning key should definitely be on your to-read list!
