Review: “Nathan, Nathan” says Sam the 14 year old boy “Are you ok?” he asks. Nathan Sam’s older brother has been injured from head to toe. In the book Scorpion Sting written by Justin D’ Ath. This book is adventurous, and dangerous with an underlying theme of brother love. It is the 4th book in the Extreme Adventures series. The main character is Sam Fox.
Sam and his brother Nathan are exploring a cave when they find a huge fossil. Sam accidentally leans on it and the cave caves in. A bone falls over Sam and protects him, but Nathan isn’t as lucky. Sam has to find help for his brother before his brother dies. Leaving Nathan, two granola bars, and a half filled water bottle, Sam has to find a way out of the cave that lies 1.5 miles below ground and find help. He runs into many bad situations but that does not stop his determination to save his brother. Will he be able to make it?
Scorpion Sting is a great book. I liked all the adventure Sam has and how he gets out of his problems. I don’t like how he makes such a mess of everything and how he never learns his lesson. Sam is like a pouch full of mistakes, but his brother is as wise as a dragon. It took the first few chapters to get me hooked. The first part was admittedly kind of dull, but it slowly started to get better and better until I could not put it down. In the middle of the book my excitement level went through the roof. There are so many mysteries like what his location is and what time it is. It just makes more mysteries. Read the book and find out about all the wonders of Scorpion Sting.
