House They become friends sort of and she is very curious about the house At the same time there is some sort of treasure hunting going on I guess the description makes it sound like there s a lot going on but there really wasn t Pretty disappointing And the story with Allegra
very much fell flat at the nd harleigh much fell flat at the Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows end Harleigh Weatherby IV 12 has a mighty big name but a diminutive size He s so small other kids mistake him for a 6 year old He lives in the Weatherby Mansion with Aunt Adelaide his father Harleigh III and a host of other close and distant relatives The mansion is not run down but it needs repairs The gardens are in special need of tender loving care One day while Harleigh IV is out on the grounds he meets Allegra a stranger his age He wonders how onarth she s managed to make it on the Weatherby property That s when she tells him she flies Yeah ok The two become friends if for no other reason than they are both lonely Allegra wants desperately to get inside and The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) explore the mansion but Aunt Adelaide insists that no strangersnter Allegra and Harleigh Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, encounter some mysterious noises people andvents and discover there is a Weatherby Lost Treasure to be found And find it they do After Allegra mysteriously leaves he finds out that she really can fly but not like you think I wish I could give this book 2 and a half stars but I can t This book was okay not the best book I ve ver read unfortunately This book could have been so much better You d think Harleigh s unusual size would have something to do with the plotbut no Even the maze could ve been an incredibly mysterious place
Like The Place That the place that merry go round in The Thief "LORD WAS HIDDEN THE PLOT IN "was hidden The plot in book was almost invisible until the middle of the book and ven then Harleigh and Allegra seemed unconcerned Harleigh said himself the treasure didn t xist but then he looks for it And Junior I didn t get an uneasy feeling when he was mentioned he just didn t seem dangeroushe found the Weatherby treasure he should have been a heroI don t recommend this book read the Percy Jackson books or The Thief Lord both are definitely better than this book.

Free download The Treasures of WeatherbyThe author could ve done a better job This is a pretty disappointing book specially coming from an author like Snyder who has demonstrated in the past that she can write tight plot and complex characters I don t mind that the
mysterious old house with secrets plots is overused as she admits herself but I don t seeold house with secrets plots is overused as she admits herself but I don t see she bothered when she does so little with it The house and family history are only sketched in vaguely as a backdrop Harleigh was all right if uninteresting but Allegra was really annoying I guess Snyder stuck in the home schooling plot line to xplain why the poor protagonist would bother being friends with such an irritating and rude person Also I was irked that Snyder kept Wiring emphasizing how Allegra was really interested in the house and asked all these prying uestions and physically forced her way inside toxplore and then NEVER GIVES A REASON for her interest In the Against All Odds end there just wasn tnough to this book If it were possible to give half stars I d give this a half less Typical Zilpha Keatley Snyder gives the hint and promise of something really fascinating or rivetingand then nothing happens Ever And the book nds leaving you feeling like you ve been wandering around aimlessly for no reason at all Always with uestions left you ve been wandering around aimlessly for no reason at all Always with uestions left And often leaving you wondering Wait what was I xpecting to happen anywayIn fact she The DOS even does this to her character in this book and I had to laugh at the words she wrote Many long anxious minutes crept by while Harleigh watched and listened and waited for something terrible to happenBut nothing did Whatever or whoever it was apparently had decided not to open the door must not haveven tried to since there was no lock and whoever it was could have walked right inThis is pretty much a metaphor for the book Many long minutes of breathlessly reading at first anyway waiting for something mysterious and Against All Odds exciting to happen And then nothingver does And the author apparently never Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism even decided to bother to write a good book didn tven try to apparently because she had all the fixings and could have walked right into a fascinating story But she never does.
