‘Death is a Many-Splendored’ is book one of the ‘Chronicles of the Deadly Dead.’ It is a children’s humorous action and adventure story filled with intrigue and scene-after-scene enchantment. The trilogy is perfect for the young reader, and Zach, the main character, truly engages you in the story.
What I predominantly enjoyed about the book was how each character had a specific personality that meshed well with the other. In addition to this factor, the dialogue and age-appropriate behavior were spot on, keeping the plotline as relative as possible.
Since this was a trilogy, the author introduced enough foundation and backstory, enabling more for wanting in the next book. The world-building was substantial, and the steady pace kept the reader intrigued. I recommend this book to young action-adventure fans.
