Excitement and suspense abound throughout this book. I really enjoy the writing style, the imagery and plots of all G P Taylor's books. Despite being a pensioner, I find this book as enthralling as 'The Midas Box'; and indeed all the author's other titles.
A must read.

GP Taylor is an interesting writer. I read his first book Shadowmancer and its sequel some years ago and admired his impeccable use of language, while at the same time finding the bleakness of his vision somewhat off-putting. Taylor writes meanest of spirit and darkness of soul better than any writer I know.

I might have left it at that except that I came across the first of the Mariah Mundi books in a discount bookstore a couple of months ago and enjoyed it greatly. As a writer of young adult fiction, I have trod within the same territory; Victorian steampunk adventures in which magic vies with gothic technology to take centre stage. I was captivated by the relationship Mariah (who is a boy btw) forms with the girl, Sacha, and wanted to read more.

Mariah Mundi and the Ghost Diamonds is the second story in the trilogy and is a worthy read. Taylor doesn't disappoint in either language or storyline. This is a truly exciting adventure. You should buy and read it.

I was a little disappointed by the way Sacha is little more than a cipher in this novel. She was stronger in the first book and I love strong female characters. (I've been accused of creating a lot of them.) But that aside, this is an excellent read and well worth your time.

Of the Mariah Mundi Series 12 Mar. 2014
By LautuLoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I watched the new The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box movie and had to read the books afterwards. This was an international buy and the shipping was FAST. I received this one before I got the first one. The book is in pretty good condition. It was obviously a library book, judging from a label and bar code inside. The cover was a little bent on the front and the front page (not part of the story) was cut off but those imperfections do not take away from the buy. Other than that it was in great condition.
