Publisher's Summary

The Princelings of the East is the first of a trilogy telling of the adventures of Fred and George.

When the King's birthday feast is ruined by an unnatural power drain, our Princeling heroes leave their scientific experiments to set out in search of answers. They encounter the enigmatic businessman Hugo, the impressive Prince of Buckmore, the wise Lady Nimrod, and the irrepressible barkeeper Victor, but find themselves threatened by those with vested interests. The scene shifts from a rural, feudal setting to the towers and heights of the curious Isle of Hattan, but where, or when, are they? Time is of the essence in solving this puzzle, and our heroes must keep their wits sharp and their heads clear if they are to survive.

Suitable for everyone aged 10 and over, The Princelings of the East is a fantasy adventure with the charm of the Wind in the Willows in a world reminiscent of Anne MacCaffrey's Pern.

Imaginative romp through space & time

Jemima Pett has written a fun story of twin boys on an adventure. They discover hidden passageways and tubes that allow them to travel to other places and times. They meet a host of interesting characters along the way. To build more drama, there is a mysterious energy drain, strawberry fizz kind of drink and Wasna. (Guessing on the spelling of that drink since I was listening.) Christopher Preece was terrific as the narrator. Appealed to my sense of adventure, hidden connections, and other worlds.

Even better on audio!

I read this as an eBook a while ago, and really enjoyed it. It's even better on audio! Between the fantastic worldbuilding, lovable characters, plus all the other elements that make up the wonderful story, and the amazing job the narrator did of bringing it to life, how could I not love this audio book?
