After his mother dies Crispin is lost, with no family or place to call his own after the villagers burned it down. While wandering through the forest, Crispin accidentally stumbles upon a secretly held conversation between the steward, who held all the power in his town, John Aycliffe and a mysterious man. Crispin was obviously not supposed to hear the conversation, so he ran from the angry steward clutching the last thing his mother gave to him : a cross made of lead with a little writing on it ( Crispin can’t read) .On his way he meets Bear, a man who captures him and makes him his apprentice. But, the questions start coming, who is Crispin really? And what does his cross say….
This book was good. It made the reader question so many things along the way, and when they finally got the answers it was a big shock! This book needs some time to start going, because it is a little slow at the start. I used to not like it, but then it became really good. Other people don’t really like this book because of the slow starting, but it really just needs a chance. This is not a a book for everyone, if you like to take chances with reading then pick up this book, you won’t regret it! I would give it a 8 out of 10!
