More About the Author

Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles - which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam's father said they were a Blade family heirloom. As a boy, Adam would spend days imagining who could have first owned the sword and shield. Eventually, he created a character - Tom, the bravest boy warrior of them all. The idea for Beast Quest was born. hen Adam grew up and decided that he wanted to be a writer, he was stuck for ideas - until he remembered the old sword and shield, and the imaginary boy he had created when he was young. Adam decided to bring Tom fully to life so that readers could go on the kind of adventures that he always wanted to when he was that age... And still does, even though he's grown up! When he's not writing Beast Quest books, Adam enjoys visiting museums and ancient battle sites. His main hobbies are fencing and football. He also spends a lot of time at home running around after his two exotic pets - a tarantula named Ziggy, and a capuchin monkey named Omar. These little rascals were the inspiration for two of the Beasts that Tom faces on his Quest - Arachnid and Claw. adly, Adam does not have his own Fire-Dragon or Horse-Man. But he really wishes he did!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beast Quest books are brilliant 1 Mar 2009
A Kid's Review
i have just finished reading series 1 in the Beast Quest series and I could not put the books down, they were brilliant. The books are about a boy named Tom who goes on quests to save the kingdom Avantia and this book Ferno The Fire Dragon is the best.

I was 7 years old when i read this book and learnt to read lots of new words. I am now reading series 2 and want to get the special editions next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beast Quest 18 Feb 2009
By Liz
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A young hero, a cursed kingdom, a fearsome beast and an exciting quest. An excellent start to a series that is aimed at encouraging young boys to read. My five-year-old grandson loved it and can't wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic storylines, but a hit with the kids 12 July 2009
I bought the first book in the series to read to my five year old son - I wanted something with chapters that would keep him entertained and coming back for more, and that is exactly what we got with these stories.

I didn't know anything about the books before we bought it - it was a chance find at Waterstones, but what a find!

My little boy is enthralled with them, we get an opportunity to discuss words he hasn't heard before, and he asks me whenever he can to read a chapter with him - I never say no.

I have to say that these books have the added bonus of giving us an opportunity to go to the bookshop together (sorry Amazon) to buy the next volume every couple of weeks. For me it is a great opportunity to get out of the house and have a little 'father/son' time.

Most of all, he is enjoying 'grown up' books, and he tells me that before we get to the end of the series, he will be able to read the books to me. Now, what more can you ask from a series of kids books than that?

Sure, the stories are formulaic, but I'm not a five year boy - to them, the stories are wonderful - I'd recommend these to any parent with a child aged between about 5 and 8, particularly boys, who will want to read them themselves, although the books do have a strong female character throughout, so the girls shouldn't feel too left out by these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 29 Oct 2013
I read this to my 6 year old, a couple of chapters per night. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed reading it to him almost as much as he enjoyed listening. The language is simple as it is a children's book but the scenes are detailed and the series is fast paced and action packed.

The world of Avantia has been protected by 6 mystical beasts. An evil wizard Malvall has turned them evil using 6 golden collars. With the beasts attacking the King must send his armies to repair the damage caused by the beasts. He also sends his braves Knights to use a golden key to unlock the collars. None have returned from this take. The good Wizard Aduro finds a prophecy of an unlikely hero will release the beasts. Enter Tom the son a legendary hero, raised by his aunt and uncle. Tom accepts the Beast Quest. Of course you can't send a 12 year old out to fight dragons and such on his own. So Aduro gives him a Sword that seems to be made specifically for him. Then a wooden shield, and a great stallion called Storm. The he is told to trust his instincts about the people he will meet and those who can help him. In true dungeons and dragons tradition the weapons and the characters skills can be upgrades after battles. Also new friends could be added to the group.

Even though it is aim at younger readers it is a great story and works for all ages. Nice simple language for kids, just dark and gritty enough for more mature readers.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I recommend it to any one especially first readers as it is easy to read . At times I was at the edge of my seat . My only concern is that the book is too short and you could read it in a hour . Otherwise it was great .
