One of the book series I read over the Summer was the Pillage series. The series was by one of my favorite authors, Obert Skye. The book starts off in a normal town and the main character, Beck, is just a regular trouble kid. But then he gets called to the front office and told his mom has passed away. While attending her funeral, a person gets in the car he is in and tells him that he is leaving tomorrow to go to Kingsplot to live with his uncle. Kingsplot is a strange place and he finds out his uncle lives on a huge mansion on the hill. Beck is annoyed because his uncle will never leave the top of the tower and doesn’t even know he is there. When he is at school strange things start happening to him, like vines snatching bullies up, and lettuce that flies. He soon finds some friends and start exploring the big house. They were exploring the backyard and found a courtyard surrounded by a huge wall. Beck finds out that he has the power to grow things so he uses the power to grow a vine over the wall. When they get over they found a sack of really heavy, odd shaped stones. They later found a basement and explored it. In the basement they found a book talking about Dragonstones and how to grow and take care of the dragons. They drew a conclusion that the Dragonstones were the stones they found in the courtyard. The next day they went to the courtyard and Beck used his power to “plant” the stones. In a couple of weeks the plants were hatched and there were 7 dragons! They grew huge and wanted to pillage. It turned out the one of his friends, Milo, was the peddler from the book and was a wizard. He took Beck’s shape so the dragons would obey him and he told the dragons to go pillage Kingsplot. When Beck was at the mansion his Uncle burst into his room and told him that he had saw the dragons. Beck and his uncle, Aaron, had fought together to take down the dragons, but the last dragon could only be killed by eating one of them. Luckily Beck was at the right place at the right time when Milo snuck up on him in the form of his uncle Aaron and got swallowed by the last dragon.
That was only the first book. The second and third book are just as, if not better than the first. This is an amazing book series and I recommend you read it.
