Warren the 13th #1: The All-Seeing Eye by Tania Del Rio

Warren the 13th and The All-Seeing EyeMy name is Warren, and I've inherited a hotel with an All-Seeing Eye hidden somewhere inside the hotel. Uncle Rupert is my guardian, but his new wife Annaconda is a witch. The Eye may just be a legend, but I now suspect Annaconda only married my uncle to find it. Her evil sisters have moved into the hotel, but not before they told others about the Eye. Now, all of the hotel rooms are filled with people looking for the jewel, or crystal ball, or magic spectacles, or enchanted rock. No one knows what the All-Seeing Eye might be, or if it really exists. But Annaconda believes, and she thinks I'm the key to finding it. After finding a coded message in the hedge maze, I'm beginning to think she's right.

Warren's honesty and determination make him an admirable character. His uncle is very lazy and lets the hotel fall into disrepair, but Warren still works hard every day to keep the rooms clean and ready for guests. He shows remarkable patience when the mass of rude guests arrive, and he befriends a creature in the basement while being punished by his aunt. The mystery of the All-Seeing Eye will capture the interest of readers, as Warren uncovers clues about its true power. Heck, Warren doesn't even know what he's looking for. The plot takes many twists and turns, as different characters reveal their true motivations. Petula befriends Warren, but he's unaware that she's Annaconda's apprentice. Or is she? This book ends with Warren seeking new adventures across the land, but you'll need to read it for an explanation.
