Book #1 of this awesome trilogy is amazing! It's about a kid named Arlo Finch who moves to a place called Pine Mountain in Colorado. He and his sister and mom (not dad because he's hiding from the FBI) move in with Arlo's Uncle. He starts Rangers (Scouts) like his Uncle did and Pine Mountain is a very special place because there's mystical creatures and a whole other world! He finds out that he's not safe and that those mystical creatures want him dead! There's so many secrets that he has to uncover. Will he find out why they want him or will he be murdered!?
