Amazon Review, Piwi Mama (Click for all Amazon Review): “It seems to be a common lament of parents that their middle school age son just doesn’t seem interested in reading for enjoyment. Thankfully there are authors recognizing that if we want kids to read they have to be interested in what they are reading. N.D Richman has done a great job with the Boulton Series.”
Amanda’s Books and More (Review by 13 year-old Samantha): “I have to admit, from a girl’s perspective, I was a bit wary of this book, though there was no reason for me to be! It was absolutely delightful and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it… I thoroughly enjoyed this little piece of perfection and I can’t wait to read more from its exceptionally talented author.”
BeachBoundBooks: “I enjoy the author’s writing style and the story’s quick tempo grasped my attention and didn’t let go. I also found the ingenuity and resourcefulness the author gives his young characters, during the many gripping scenes, to be appealing making the story all that more exciting.”
Dalene’s Book Reviews: “Over all the book is a great read and I am going to have my grandsons read it. I look forward to reading the next book.”
Bound 4 Escape: “Brothers, Bullies, and Bad Guys is a quick, easy read that is action packed. There is also some violence but less than we see on TV every day. It has a little romance and a lot of growing up. This is a great book for young adults.”
Evening eBook: “Packed full of action suitable for younger audiences, Richman does a great job at painting a vivid picture while remaining engaging.”
Oh My Bookness: “A compelling adventure you can sink your teeth into from beginning to end.The book from the start of is filled with action, making you wonder what is going to happen next. N.D. Richman takes you on a action packed adventure from the beginning to end. Its full of wonder and mystery, you may not want to put the book down.”
Rockin’ Book Reviews: “It is easy for youth to follow as the action just keeps adding more characters and more action. It is fast-paced and will keep the reader’s interest to the very end. The end is powerful and leaves the reader’s anxious to “dig into” the next of the series.”
The Reading Room: “The reader is drawn into the story and can enjoy living vicariously through Chris and Michael find danger and intrigue every step of the way. If you have a young reader who likes thrillers, mysteries or adventures they will love Brothers, Bullies and Bad Guys.”
Vailia’s Page Turner: “The action and adventuring was fierce! You name it, it happens in this book. Kidnapping, shootouts, explosions, bears, boat chase, avalanche and more! It keeps you very fixed on the book wondering what will happen.”
Musing With CrayolaKym: “It has all of the action packed mystery and suspense of an adult novel, but with two younger aged boys as main characters. The action wasn’t too graphic and it hits on several topics including bullying and latchkey kids.”

It is one that young readers and adult readers alike can enjoy (possibly even by reading together!) You will definitely not want to miss reading the second book in the series! If you have not read any of the series, I highly suggest you do!

Book Reviews & Giveaways: “[My son] says… in the series, is even better than the first. He likes how the experiences the characters have gone through still have an effect on them, just like in real life.
Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, and getting into trouble: What a great way to grow up! One of my favourite memories is sitting on the handlebars of my brother’s bike, my dog on my lap, as he careened down the steep mountain trails above our home in Kamloops, BC. My brother and I had caves, tree forts, frog filled ponds, and cactus patches to play in, and sling shots for protection. Somehow I survived my childhood and proudly moved on to fatherhood. My children, Christopher, Michael, Thomas, and Katherine, kindly donated their names, characters, and ideas to theBoulton Quest series of books.
