The Mighty is a stunning opening to the Druid’s Guise series by Michael J Sanford, a book that will entertain and surprise young adults and adult readers alike. Wyatt, a fifteen-year-old kid, is sent to The Shepherd's Crook because he isn’t normal. Everyone thinks he is disturbed, just like most kids at Crook, and this perception of him doesn’t get any better when he claims that he has extraordinary powers. As he struggles to understand his gift and come to terms with his history, Wyatt is suddenly thrust into Hagion, a world where he is recognized for what he is: a legendary Druid. It is interesting to watch how he shifts between different worlds, fighting to set his friends free from those who oppress them, and fine tuning his magical skills.
The Mighty by Michael J Sanford is a powerful book that reiterates the hard truth - our gifts are our crosses because they set us apart and make us outcasts in a society that isn’t yet ready to accept what stands apart as extraordinary. The characters are interesting and readers will be satisfied to see how young Wyatt accepts himself and fights for what he believes. The writing is crisp and the dialogue is very natural and interesting, allowing readers to penetrate the minds of the characters and to feel the action closely. This is one of those books that will be loved by both children and adults, especially fans of the Chronicles of Narnia. The book also has many lessons for young people, including the power of friendship, the miracle of courageously embracing who we are, and a wild quest for adventure that will make them dream of worlds they’ll never know. The Mighty is a satisfying and entertaining read, and I can’t wait to see what happens next in this compelling series.
