I admit it: after reading Bone Quill, I read Hollow Earth all over again just to remain close to the characters. It's an exciting new adventure for the Calder twins, despite being an independant adventure - or actually half an adventure - which can be read without foreknowledge. That won't apply to the third installment which will hopefully come soon. Because you just want to know what happens next, not just to the twins themselves but also to many other characters. Although Solon from the Middle Ages wasn't so interesting in the first book, you surely want to know more about him now, especially since he's now got a companion to work with too.

Surprisingly, and I already noticed that in the first book, it is the boy twin who hits into puberty first while generally this happens to girls first. Obviously that is necessary for the story as girls don't fight the way boys do when they disagree or distrust someone else of their own age (and among boys that is a more regular feature of behaviour - they generally make up more easily too) while this particular fight was a great way of getting the two boys - one from the 21st and the other from the 13th century, to start working together.

The only negative point I have, is the fact that the father is a bit too simple in character. He is just a megalomaniac who furthermore manages to incite a rebellion in an monastery in 4 (!) days time while being a complete stranger to them. Of course, he is a strong guardian en well able to "inspirit" many monks, but it still seemned a bit unlikely.

Wow it just gets better. The story of Em and Matt continues at a blistering pace. So glad I downloaded all three together this way I have not had a long agonising wait to find out what happens next. Oh talking of what happens next gotta go and start reading it NOW ! Be you young or old if you loved Harry Potter your going to love these ...

Enjoyed the first book. Especially as written by John and Carol Barrowman.
Hoping book two would be just as good but my interest was lost early into it.
Have since finished and do want to complete the trilogy, just hoping book three is better.

The story follows on from where it left off in the first book. It's like famous five meets the tomorrow people. Almost every chapter ends with a cliff hanger and you need to continue reading.
Really enjoyed reading this book even though I was reluctant to give it a go. I hope the next book is out soon as it has left more loose ends in the air than the first one.
Great for teenagers who like mystery and a bit of old fashioned fantasy thrown in, but with a modern twist.

Bought this as it is the second book by John Barrowman. The first book was bought for my 10 year old grandson but my husband read it and really enjoyed it so I bought the second. Think it might be a little advanced for a 10 year old.
