Description: Grant Bradley was never meant to survive cancer or live happily ever after with his fiancée, Tate. Before he was born, his destiny to become a guardian angel was decided by the life-planning Schedulers.
Despite having what his new peers deem as a great position in the afterlife, living in utopia with a merciless mentor and looking after strangers doesn't change the way Grant feels about losing out on his life with Tate. Refusing to accept his destiny, he finds a way to visit his lost love. However, keeping their connection alive and, most importantly, secret, will end up costing Grant more than he could ever imagine.

What a book this is for readers. You can read this book in several ways. I would let you decide if you want to read it these ways.

  1. Story of Grant
  2. Afterlife kinda story
  3. Story of Friendships
  4. Story of Mystery
You can decide for yourselves. I really enjoyed the book. To me it was a story of Grants life and learning the truth about about his life. He makes some mistakes and he needs to learned. He does not want to remember his life with Tate.

He starts to makes friends. He does not know about his Legacy. He meets her and does not not know that his first assignment has to do with her. He goes about doing it until he makes a big mistake. He does some really strange things. There are surprises along the way. Grant needs to learn a few things. There are different page turners.

The characters are done well. I had a really hard time putting this book down once I started it. It was that good. I really hope to get the next book to read or to review. I was enjoying Grant and Willow and now I also enjoyed Ryder and Troy.  It really strange and we meet Elliott and it a surprised that I do not want to give you an ending of this book away or what Elliott is doing or how he see Grant or know Grant.

Description: Here it is! The complete collection of The Camelot Kids Parts 1-4, with new illustrations and extra story.

The Camelot Kids is a series that tells the story of Simon Sharp, a 14-year-old orphan. Simon isn’t a normal teenager. He’s a kid on a mission. He's determined to find a place to belong.
If you ask him how his parents died, he'll tell you King Arthur killed them. They died looking for proof that Camelot is real.

When a grumpy, 3276 year old Merlin shows up to protect him, Simon finds that the answer is an epic adventure away.
Packed with surprises, The Camelot Kids is a fresh take on the beloved myth.

The Camelot kids is packed with adventures and action. It great for all ages of kids. Simon finds out his parents died. Simon want to find a place to belong. He starts to have dreams. A place named Camelot. Is there really a place called New Camelot?

What all will Simon be dealt with and understand. He makes friends and loss some as well. Their seems to be a mystery around the corner of each paged turned. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into it at the beginning of the book. Once the action started and the adventures. I was able to read it and understand it. It then seem like King Arthur and Round Table.

Pictures are done well. I really enjoyed looking at pictures. Images or pictures are colorful. I was looking and staring at the pictures for a short period of time. Children would love it. This is good for children ages 12 and up.

Influenster Review Page: SNACKY MOUSE™ Cat Toy
TEMPTATIONS® Twitter: @TemptationsCats
TEMPTATIONS® Facebook: TEMPTATIONS® Cat Treats
Hashtag: #CatVsMouse

This is a decent product. My cats both played with it. Pumpkin seem to enjoy it more to get to the treats out to eat. I have gotten them in action and they really did enjoy it. I can open a packet and my Pumpkin will want the treat.

The plastic could be a bit better. For I think it breakable. It did not come with cracks. It got them after I used it for a bit. It not completely bad or horrible. My cats batted at it until all the treats were out of it and then they leave it alone.

It could be a bit better but it who to say that it worth $6.00. I hope you have an active cat if you want to have this for him. I think this is good if you want to to see it playing and getting a treat at the same time.
