Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite

Honor's Journey by D.B. Ayers is not just a book for children but a book for everyone who loves reading about lives in different times. This book is about twins Hawk and his sister Fox. Everything goes reasonably well in their little native American village. Fox does not like being educated as a normal girl and prefers to ride and be out and about - but apart from that, life is all good. Until one day when she comes across a raiding party from a different tribe. Through her cleverness, she is able to stop the raid and make the two tribes negotiate some sort of peace - but that peace comes with a price. That price might be too high for Hawk and his sister. But which kind of honor will they choose? The honor of the tribe or the horse called Honor and their personal honor?

Honor's Journey by D.B. Ayers is a book that is neither too short nor too long. It offers just the right amount of valuable entertainment, i.e. entertainment that doesn't just make you feel good but also the kind of entertainment that can teach you something. In this book, the reader not only learns about native Americans and their traditions, but he/she can also learn a lot about values and honor. It is an exciting story about family, about duty, and about where to draw the line. The plot moves along nicely at the perfect pace and the reader will always want to know what happens next, so it's really hard to put the book down.
