Cardsharp POW Blog Tour




Cardsharp is an exciting adventure book for children set in the art world. Escaping house fires and fighting daring robbers is just the beginning for art researcher, Vincent Ward, and these battles do little to prepare him for the exciting adventure that unfolds. An old journal discovered at an auction in Rome puts Vincent on the trail of an undiscovered painting by one of art history’s most notorious masters, Caravaggio. But paintings this rare and valuable are sought after by more than just collectors and galleries. Vincent soon finds himself on the run from a brutal and lawless policeman, a gang of international criminals, and fighting vicious pirates.

There are stings, tricks and conspiracies around every corner, and bullets flying from the shadows. Only The National Gallery, London is safe for Vincent and the painting. But is there a way back? Get ready to be thrown into the world of Vincent Ward, where getting through each day alive just isn’t enough.


Review:

Full of action, a ton of twists, and awesome characters! This is a great book for tweens looking for great entertainment! What better then the entertainment value of this book? It is that Cardshark is actually educational as well. You get a great look into the life and times of the well known artist Caravaggio. All the excitement in this book might even get tweens interested in learning more about Art History.

I recommend this book to all Middle School readers as there is both a strong male and female character! I think both young boys and girls can enjoy this story. And if they get into this first book, there are more Victor Ward books to come!
