Book #93 -- Joseph Bruchac, Night Wings, 192 pages.

An adventure novel about a young Abenaki boy and his grandfather forced by an unscrupulous monster hunter to guide him in his quest for a mythical treasure guarded by a beast sacred to the Abenaki people. It's very well done, with the right blend of traditional and modern; material and spiritual.

Book #94 -- R. L. LaFevers, Flight of the Phoenix (Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist, Book I), 134 pages.

The first adventure of Nathaniel Fludd, born into the intrepid Fludd family, famous explorers and Beastologists. Nate doesn't think he has what it takes to be a Fludd, but he'll find he's full of surprises. Quite a fun YA book.
