Review Text

  • By Lizbie on 6 July 2015

    With the Summer holidays looming this is an excellent choice to keep both boys and girls occupied on those long journeys and forestall the perennial question of "When will we get there?". The author has managed to combine a page turning historical fantasy with modern life. She does not hesitate to introduce her readers to obscure historical terms but this is done in a fun way without being stuffy or patronising and there is a simple glossary at the end of the book to explain further. For those heading to York or the areas associated with Richard 111 there is the added interest of looking further into places and people mentioned in the book.

    This is an absolutely fantastic book, suitable for mainly ages 8-13 although I enjoyed it immensely myself! The writing is excellent, whilst the mix of modern day fiction with true historical fact creates a truley captivating world which will have you entranced! (The lovely illustrations are also perfect for your children, capturing their imaginations!) I would highly recommend this book to all.

    A brilliant choice for fans of history or great storytelling! I have been studying Richard III for A level and found this new perspective on his life very interesting, particularly as it's based on true events! It really demonstrates the skill of the author when a book written mainly for children is able to entertain someone so much older than the intended audience!

    This is a fantastic book and I recommend it to anyone who's considering buying it!! The author is such a talented lady and this book (hopefully the first of many) is a joy to read.
