    "Girls Adventure"

    Visualize Indiana Jones as an 11 year-old girl. My 9 year-old daughter listened to it in just 2 days.

    "Delightful and precocious"
    If you could sum up Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, educational, absorbing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos?

    The climax where Theodosia is facing the Serpents of Chaos in the pyramid.


    Any additional comments?

    I like good children's books, they usually have a level of humour that adults pick up . This one is just beautiful.

    "Great listen"

    A children's author R. LaFevers is not. And trust me when I say this is meant as the most highest compliment. This book transcends the boundary of age and can entertain and educate on all levels. I highly recommend this book for those die hard Harry Potter fans and see this as the next big hit. Can't wait to get the next book.

    "great heroine, fabulous narrator, solid story"

    I read constantly to know what's out there for my students. Reluctant readers will love the fast pace and plot twists. The characters were delightful and I did appreciate that her parents weren't near as uncaring as originally portrayed.

    Story
    "Entirely fun and a good story for all ages."
    What made the experience of listening to Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos the most enjoyable?

    The main character handles all sorts of very grave, difficult and scary tasks with a matter of fact 'well no one else is going to do it' attitude. Her charming but clueless parents are, like parents can be, so tied up in their adult lives and concerns that they are unaware of what their children are up too. In this case it is all kinds of intrigue: With mummies and crazy cults and curses galore. You just have to like her plucky spirit,her self confidence and her desire to do right even in the craziest situations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The blending of actual historical information into a good story. The voice of Charlotte Parry was perfect for the character and made her come alive. Also lots of action.


    Have you listened to any of Charlotte Parry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure if I have listened to any other stories narrated by this performer. But she was wonderful.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Mummies and Jackals and curses oh my!


    Any additional comments?

    Only that if you like this series you will probably also like the Enola Holmes stories. They have something of the same flavor, thought meant I think for young adults old enough not to be upset by some of the historical descriptions of 18th century London and the deplorable conditions of the poor there.

    Tell us about yourself! I am the author of "Over the Moon" and "Falling Off the Planet." They are both YA Sci-fi fantasy romance.

    Story
    "An 11 Year Old Girl Saves the World"

    A very precocious 11 year old girl saves the world from agents of chaos who wish to take over the world using ancient Egyptian curses and magic to aid their cause. Fans of Rick Riordan's "Red Pyramid" should enjoy this book.

    I thought it well written, filled with fun characters and interesting Egyptian lore. At first, she seems to have the most neglectful, clueless parents in the world, but they redeem themselves in the end. She is given an impossible task by the head of a secret society which opposes the chaos agents. We have to grant extreme poetic license in order to suspend reality to a world where an 11 year old girl could be asked to do such a thing in complete secrecy with no outside help other than the Egyptian gods. Other than that, I found it delightful as I'm sure children 10 years and up will.

    "what a find this was"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Theodesia and the Serpents of Chaos to be better than the print version?

    yes the story is excellent and told in an intelligent way to its target audience whom many books patronize. The language and the decidedly odd heroine are a pleasure to read, but ms parrys performance is stellar I must say


    What other book might you compare Theodesia and the Serpents of Chaos to, and why?

    Maybe the wardstone chronicles which also feature a distinctive heroine Alice, and don't talk down to the young audience

    "Great"

    What an amazing voice she has! The narration is just brilliant. The story is very exciting but leaves few surprises for a 30'something such as myself but for younger listeners I think it will keep them on the edge of their seat for the whole journey from beginning to end.
