The beginning is a little boring, but once you read more it is a great book. Harry Potter and Percy Jackson fans will like this

This book was unexepectedly great! I didn't really expect much from the book, but I was surprised to discover an awesome plot after the boring beginning.

Surprised about this story, though I really don't know the reason why. It's enjoyable and the camaraderie between Max and the rest of the students at Rowan Academy amused me (well, some of them).

If you’re a fan of Harry Potter you should check out this book.
It’s about a boy named Max whose life goes from uneventful to exciting when an incident at the Art Institute of Chicago, involving a Celtic tapestry, leads to an invitation to attend the mysterious Rowan Academy. Max learns that the Academy is a boarding school for kids like him with magical abilities. As his abilities improve and surpass those of his peers, Max also learns that there are evil forces, lead by the sinister demon Astorath, who seek to destroy him and others like him.

While comparisons can definitely be made between this book and Harry Potter, The Hound of Rowan does have it’s own distinctive feel and interesting cast of characters. It’s definitely worth a read. The next book in the series is called The Second Siege.
