While on a summer vacation in Japan, college student Justin Toshi Blackwood attends a lavish twenty-first birthday party for his cousin Kaito Saito. The two young men share a great-grandfather and soon realize each has inherited a mysterious family heirloom with one receiving a folding knife and the other a pocket watch.
After discovering the knife opens a secret compartment in the old watch containing a tiny hidden map, they hike out it into the forest along a riverbed to locate a jar containing the Nine Stones. Each grayish-blue river rock has an animal engraved on one side and a location etched in kanji on the other.
So begins an exciting international scavenger hunt where the two cousins must collaborate their efforts during supernatural encounters of recovery. Along the way, they unite with Justin’s loyal sister Melia and new friend Yori as the four companions try to unlock a magical family secret. Will they survive the perilous journey and unravel the mystery?

Adaptively Radiant is a thrilling novel thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with Adaptively Radiant!
Joseph E. Henning is an incredibly talented and excellent author who clearly knows how to write unique but engaging stories. It was evident to me from the start that Henning is a passionate writer who surely loves entertaining readers with his literature and putting a smile on readers’ faces. I loved this about the author, but what I loved the most about Henning’s writing is his remarkable descriptions because they genuinely amazed me. Adventure novels, in general, are challenging to write because you have to transport the reader quickly and effortlessly, but sadly this is rarely accomplished in an adventure/magical story but not with Adaptively Radiant. Adaptively Radiant is the way it is because Henning knows what he is doing!
To conclude, Adaptively Radiant is a marvelous, stellar and supreme action and adventure book that will entertain, delight as well as charm readers! And so I, of course, have to award this book five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you won’t regret it!
