Product Description

Silver Hill is the third book in the bestselling Jack Brenin series. With Nora away on a vitally important mission in Annwn, Jack Brenin has to take sole responsibility for rescuing the last two Dragonettes left on earth from being roasted for a Spriggan feast. Using his trusty Book of Shadows for guidance, and with his friends Camelin the raven and Timmery the bat (along with a cunningly captured Dorysk), Jack mounts a daring raid on the Spriggan stronghold inside Silver Hill. But his triumphant return is overshadowed by the discovery of a problem in Annwn that is too big for even Nora's magic. Can Jack help the Blessed Council to rescue the sleeping Druids? Read about Jack's continuing adventures in this third book in the magical Jack Brenin series, following the international bestseller The Golden Acorn, winner of the 2010 Brit Writers' Award, and its sequel, Glasruhen Gate.

Silver Hill is the third book in an ongoing adventure. Once you've read this book we're sure you'll want to read more about Jack Brenin and the magical 'Otherworld' he becomes involved in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful new series 6 Nov 2011
By A-C
I bought Silver Hill - the third book about Jack Brenin - to be delivered on publication, because I love the first two books of the series. I was not disappointed. Catherine Cooper has the ability to make even grown-ups read incredibly fast to find out what will happen next - and she does it without resorting to blood and gore. These books are just plain exciting. I have seen the Jack Brening books compared to Harry Potter, and I can see the resemblances, but also the differences. Reading Silver Hill made me think more of Astrid Lindgren. Of exciting books like Mio My Son or The Brothers Lionheart. But rather than the sad overtones these books have, there's a taste of Pippi Longstocking - and so much more.
The sad and lonely boy, Jack, meets a wonderful world of old magic where animals can speak, the forest is alive and wonderful mythological- and fantasy creatures are real. How to save it all?
In Silver Hill Jack suddenly has to stand on his own two feet to save the last living miniature dragons from being eaten. And, as it turns out, save the Otherworld from destruction.
To me, having put my 50th birthday well behind me, these books are much more than just an exciting read. They are about courage, and about using your imagination and being aware of nature and history to see the wonders of our world.
Strongly recommended - for children too - but read the whole series.
A-C Rasmussen, Danish Teacher

This is the third Jack Brenin book I have read and I have to say as the story develops and we learn more about the characters they just get better and better, I am an adult reader but really enjoy the antics of the group battling good against evil.

I love the way the main story continues but also, that there is a sub-story in each book making them exciting and full of suspense, it is also satisfying that the sub story has a conclusion (I won't spoil it for future readers but brill ending).
As before I just can't wait for the next one to come out and to find out what they all get up to next!

Thank you Catherine and keep on writing :O)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book! 20 Oct 2011
By Jay Bee
I have read every one of Catherine Cooper's books and have loved every single one of them. Silver Hill is no exception. The age range given for the Jack Brenin series is around 9+ but, as a more mature reader myself, I would say that there is no upper age limit. These books appeal to the child in every one of us.

Silver Hill is slightly different from the previous two books in that Jack is left to fend for himself for much of the story. This is a challenge to both Jack and the reader as he is forced out of Nora's shadow and you can't help but feel nervous for him. Whereas with Golden Acorn and Glasruhen Gate there was always a sense of "oh Nora will sort it out," in this latest instalment the reader cannot feel quite so smug and assured and it all adds to the rollercoaster ride of emotions. I, for one, felt this book challenged my emotions far more. I shared in Jack's frustrations, insecurities and discomfort whilst at the same time laughing at the antics of Camelin and the rather brilliant Motley (he reminds me of Captain Mainwaring). And, of course, when Nora reappears on the scene it's like putting an old pair of comfy slippers back on!

Silver Hill also has a very useful glossary section at the back written by Camelin. I found this invaluable to look up things I had forgotten from the first two books, such as what a dorysk is and who is Gerda. The writer's thoughtfulness and attention to detail in this way is commendable.

To sum up, this book is every bit as good as Golden Acorn and Glasruhen Gate. The writing is well-researched, imaginative and educational, the images conjured up are clear and vivid and now I can't wait for book 4!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting reading! 3 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jack is left to fend for himself when Nora and Elan have to go to Annwn on urgent business.

He suddenly gets knowledge of where Charkle's kin are and knows that he must mount a rescue before they are roasted and eaten. So off he goes with Camelin and the Dorysk and Timmery to find out what is happening. He manages to open a little door into a brightly lit passage..............why brightly lit? The Spriggans hate light! The cave is full of crystals which have something important to do with Nora and Elan's business. Whilst down in the passageways they also mount a rescue mission for the last ever proper Dragon.

In this book, as another reviewer pointed out, Jack is pretty much left to his own devices and magic. He also comes across someone who everyone thought couldn't return.

I am no child but this series of books have really got me absorbed. I can hardly wait for the 5th book to be printed.

Really recommended for adults and children alike.
