Review

'Grabs you right from the shocking prologue and keeps you immersed in a wonderful atmosphere of mystery, magic and monsters' Conor Kostick, bestselling author of Move,Sage and Epic 'Jean Flitcroft's first novel is utterly abosrbing and suspense-laden' Mary Shine Thompson, The Irish Times '...deftly plotted and compelling' Sarah Webb, Irish Independent 'The idea...is so simple and so clever that you wish you'd thought of it yourself... Flitcroft has a light and convincing touch... Her talent as a storyteller with her scientific background makes for a winning combination' Books Ireland 'A mystical, coming-of-age story, beautifully written' Mary Arrigan, Irish Examiner 'Gripping and incredibly interesting - It took me into a world like no other!' Nuala, Co. Leitrim, age 11 'It was incredibly absorbing and hard to put down! It crossed the world of fantasy and our world together, which makes it all the more believable, which is amazing for a book so far from reality' Brid, Co. Leitrim, age 14 --Irish Times

Product Description

Vanessa’s dreams are haunted by cryptids, mysterious creatures that haven't been acknowledged by science. She longs to complete her mother’s search for Nessie, the most famous one of them all. Can she finally solve the mystery of Loch Ness? She gets her chance on a surprise trip to Scotland, but no one could have foreseen the consequences.


Set against the eerie stillness of the loch, The Cryptid Files: Loch Ness is a mystical coming of age story filled with suspense and adventure.


‘Grabs you right from the shocking prologue and keeps you immersed in a wonderful atmosphere of mystery, magic and monsters’


Conor Kostick, bestselling author of Move, Sage and Epic

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story for younger readers. 24 Oct 2011
By Jan
Format:Paperback
Vanessa is still mourning the death of her mother and is horrified that her father wants to include his friend Lee in their family holiday to the shores of Loch Ness. She is even more distraught when they arrive and she discovers they are staying with Lee's aunt in a cottage that was once Lee's childhood home. Vanessa's mother was engaged upon some research into the story of the Loch Ness Monster and Vanessa herself has a great fascination with the story of the monster, so this should be the ideal holiday for her. During their few days near the Loch Vanessa has a close encounter with an inhabitant of the loch and learns that she has more in common with Lee that she could have imagined.

I like the way each chapter begins with a sweet small line drawing and an short account of one of the many recorded sightings of Nessie. I almost beleived in the monster myself by the end of the story. I think this is a good read for younger readers. Enjoyable, but not too challenging

This is a great read. Great storyline very fast paced. The author has managed to create a great adventure and also to give us lots of interesting facts about both the Loch Ness Monster and about Cryptids. My son Loved it and cant wait for the next one.
