Rigel: Appointments on Plum Street by Eli Ingle is a great first entry for a series, and it grips the reader from the very first line with: “Have you ever felt so alone that you feel there is only empty space inside you? A hollow place that nothing could fill and left you aching with longing for something you’ve never had?” It’s the feeling that the protagonist experiences as he returns from school, a young orphan who has no clue of who he is and what he is destined for.

But then things change dramatically when a crew of pilots in an airship arrive and offer to take him away. Through their travel, the orphan boy, Rigel, discovers that he doesn’t belong to this world. In fact, he is one of the Children of Light, the chosen few who can save the world from the sinister darkness that is about to rise. These children are up against a powerful adversary of the darkness, Frivlok, and can they learn fast enough to match his wits and cunning and stop the darkness from invading the entire universe?

Eli Ingle’s book is epic and spellbinding, a story that features compelling, multi-faceted characters. For readers who love to travel to exciting and exotic imaginary places, this story is a wonderful sanctuary. One of the merits of this book is that it allows readers to form vivid images in their minds and to see the action through their mind’s eyes as though it were a film on a huge screen before them. The setting is fictional and so colorfully captured in the writing that readers can easily imagine the characters as they navigate it. Rigel: Appointments on Plum Street presents a cast of exciting, well-developed and believable characters, a gripping plot, and a fascinating conflict.
