Arcade and the Dazzling Truth Detector by Rashad Jennings

Action and Adventure Book

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s almost Arcade Livingston’s twelfth birthday, and his next adventures with the Triple T Token will take him, his older sister Zoe, and more of their young crew back in time and around the world. And this journey of self-discovery will bring Arcade some major answers about the mysterious token in Arcade and the Dazzling Truth Detector by author Rashad Jennings.

Well! I’d say that this middle grade ChristFic fantasy series has saved the best for last with the fourth and final book in The Coin Slot Chronicles.

Oh, it isn’t a technically perfect read, as it has some incorrect punctuation and the wrong verb tenses in the narration here and there. I’m not sure if all of the slang really reflects how kids actually speak nowadays. And it would’ve been more interesting if, as it is in the characters’ trips to countries like Greece and Iceland, their stop to Africa could have been more specific, country wise.

Still, just like in the rest of the Coin Slot books, this novel has a good mix of action and wise food for thought, of laugh-out-loud comedy and touching moments. Seriously, I got teary twice while reading this, and I found the climax and the big finish to be amazing. I literally applauded at the end.

I’ll confess it makes me a little sad to have finally finished the series. It would be well worth it to read the books over again and to revisit these great characters sometime. Just wow!

Here’s my review of Book One in The Coin Slot Chronicles, Arcade and the Triple T Token.
