Since discovering a hidden world existed parallel to our own, fifteen-year-old Grayle Rowen also learned he’s a Hexhunter, someone born with the skills to track down and kill witches. Awkward…since his friend, Sarah Finn, is a witch-for-hire.

Now, together with Sarah and her elf Caretaker, Grayle travels to Istanbul to retrieve a third runestone linked to the whereabouts of the Eye of Odin—an artifact of unimaginable power. Their search pits them against Romans, a Crusader hit squad, and a journey through a deadly tomb. But what Grayle and Sarah discover about themselves along the way might be more than what they bargained for, and may ultimately put their friendship to the test.

From Istanbul’s grandest sites to its deepest tunnels, Dennis Staginnus has created a fast and furious thrill ride in this sequel to The Eye of Odin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Page Turner Dennis Staginnus' Raiders of Folklore series just keeps getting better. I enjoyed his first book, The Eye of Odin, but this second installment is even better. The Emerald Dagger had me hooked right from the first pages and kept me turning the pages to see what's going to happen next. There is never a dull moment. And the story has mythological elements, something which I love. The main characters, Grayle and Sarah, really start to come into their own in this book as we learn more about them and their motives for getting the Eye of Odin. The stakes just keep getting higher and more personal which makes the reader want them to succeed even more. This is a great middle grade/early young adult book, especially for readers who like lots of action and adventure.
