Jimmy Threepwood And The Veil of Darkness

I bought the kindle version of Jimmy Threepwood to read with my nine year old son.
It is a fabulous book full of dark magic, sinister characters, monsters, surprises and twists and turns.
We both love it and share the reading with my son acting out the plot as it develops
This could be the next Harry Potter- Warner Bros take note and snap up this author.
Really looking forward to the next instalments.
Congratulations to the author for a riviting read.

Having had the pleasure of meeting Rich Pitman I bought three signed copies of this book as presents for my son and other family members aged between 8 and 12. All of them have raved about this book. I have promised all three to treat them to the second in the Series when it comes out this year.

This book is a must for fans of everything from Harry Potter to the Skullduggery Series. It is dark in places but with enough humour to keep the more nervous among us reading on.

Rich Pitman writes with an original voice that I am sure is going to lead to a very successful series. We as a family can't wait to read them all.

Wow what a great book I bought this book for my nephew at a book signing. I started to read it and could not put it down, what a story cant wait for the second book great cliffhanger ending. I will have to buy another for my nephew now but what a great stocking filler any child or adult will love this book for christmas the story is just so different.

I loved this book and can't wait for the next one. I really liked the description and story line - it has great action. Good reading for 11+ years.

I purchased this book to read to my class of low ability students and its got them hooked.

We are taking some time to read the text as I want to make it last for a term, but they remember almost all of what happens when we do a recap and for me that's a good measure of how much they are enjoying the story.

It lends itself nicely to students doing some follow up work which is always useful for developing literacy skills.

All of them are saying they can't wait for the next book!

When I first saw this book and when it was due to be published in paperback, I thought to myself 'what a book for the children just in time for Halloween'; so I got the kids and asked them to read the few paragraphs that were available and their first words were 'get it !!'.

Now a few chapters in as I am reading it to them, they are loving it (secretly so am I)...in their words, "this is a brilliant story' I think if they had the chance they would get me reading it all the way through in one go. The book catches you after the first few pages and the story line is great. What makes it better is that they can relate the first few pages to school life which catches them straight away.

I think that this will be a book series that they will want me to continue buying and all I can say is 'well done to Rich Pitman' and his team for a refreshing new book and we look forward to the next four !

I bought this book a few days after release for my boys (and me) who had become a little fed up with the usual ultra nice leading characters and companions and obvious bad guys with no depth to their character in the books they usually read. The book didn't dissapoint, the characters have been written in enough depth to make the reader understand the motives of the bad guys, but in clear way easy for younger readers to understand which is very refreshing.
There is plenty of action, twists and turns to keep you hooked until the last page. A great first book to the series, Jimmy world is well set out, I'll be looking forward to the next one!!!

I must admit, had I not known the author, I probably wouldn't have bought this book as I am not the usual harry potter fan. But, right from the first chapter I was hooked. The storyline is captivating and graphic enough to be able to paint a picture inside your head. It took me less than 3 hours to read the full book cos frankly I was too entrigued to put it down. If you are a fantasy or harry potter fan I would truly recommend this book. Even if you're not, then I would still recommend reading it, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The book is suitable for the young, and young at heart. I am eagerly awaiting the next book.
