"Original, exciting adventure story for all"
An unpredictable story line, informative and interesting. Had the whole family gripped. Beautifully narrated.
Darkus. A boy that all boys can identify with.
She did the voices of the villains brilliantly - she is a very talented narrator.
A mystery that the whole family will enjoy.
Fantastic book. From 45 - 12 years old - we all loved it. Looking forward to the sequel - and the movie!!
