Book Description

5 Jun 2008 Mariah Mundi
Fresh out of school, young Mariah faces a new chapter of his life, living in the Prince Regent hotel built into the face of a cliff. His job is to assist the magician in the stage shows held for the guests. Above ground, the guests are offered every form of luxury. Below ground, in the green, slime-dripping walls of the basements, is where the magic show equipment is kept - and lurking in an Egyptian sarcophagus amongst scuttling sea-creatures is a secret that draws Mariah into the path of villainy, plots and possible death.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Midas Touch 1 Mar 2008
A terrific read, fast paced and gripping. Much easier on the eye than some or GPs earlier work, but still retaining the ability to magicaly transport the reader through the eyes of Mariah from dim and smoky railway carriages to the grand and spooky goings on at the Steam Powered Prince Regent Hotel. Fearsome Monsters and Heros a plenty and all thoroughly believable. This is a grand romp of a book, worth reading twice and at the very least you might find out where to be served plates of deliciuos golden fish & chips served with steaming pots of Yorkshire tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!! 14 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the best books I have ever read!Funny, but still mysterious- an intruiging mystery with many layers written in a very unique style. It is a very unusual book- there isn't another one like it- and definitely worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mariah Mundi - fast paced and fun! 27 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found Mariah Mundi by chance and I'm so glad I did! It is a gripping novel with moments to make you laugh and moments to make you, well not cry but, I think, worry for Mariah and Sacha as they explore and uncover the secrets of The Prince Regent.

I, personaly, love the character of Mariahs freind and fellow employe, Sacha. She is a fisty reble who is, as I proceve it, always up for a laugh and adventure.

It is a fast paced novel with plenty of twists and turns. All though it has been labled the next "Harry Potter" i am not so sure, they are very diffrent books (agine in my opinion)they are both great.

Overall 4 stars!
