The emperor's riddle

The Emperor's Riddle is about a girl named Mia and her brother Jake. Their aunt goes missing but leaves a note. The note said "I'm gone with my friends". Everyone but Mia believes this. Mia drags her brother along a journey where they have to answer riddles and face danger.

I think this book is ok but I think the author could have done more. The action and suspense were not really needed in this book. Everyone would know she got everything right. It just seemed like a coincidence.

4th and 5th would most likely like this book, or people who like a calm book.
