Dark Spell (Kelpies)
Dark Spell (Kelpies)
by Gill Arbuthnott
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Gill Arbuthnott, 30 July 2013
This review is from: Dark Spell (Kelpies) (Paperback)
DARK SPELL is a terrific sequel to 'WINTERBRINGERS' and I can't wait for the next in the trilogy?!!
Both books are a great read for 8-11-year-olds.
Gill Arbuthnott uses her considerable knowledge of the spooky Kingdom of Fife to great effect and by keeping the plots intriguing, simple and fast-paced she will engage young, inquisitive and appreciative minds.
Callie and Josh are a wonderfully engaging pair whose relationship is refreshingly honest. But, come on Gill, they can't go on holding hands only when they've encountered yet another scary soul risen from the Underworld!
They are cleverly imbued with an endearing and slightly cynical take on their contemporaries' world which no doubt helps them make the most of their weird and challenging encounters with her fantastic ideas, historical characters and apparitions.
Where the author is really successful is in blending fact and fiction; as if you are treading on the edge of belief and, dipping your toe in the water, there's an eerie sensation of possibility; just the stuff to engross her discerning readership.
DARK SPELL and WINTERBRINGERS will appeal to a wide-range of readers; whether a reluctant 10-year-old boy, or his grandparent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace Sweatshirt, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife absolutely loves the Bench Acebase Sweatshirt. Buying your spouse a birthday present can be tricky, but this was perfect and she loves it, particularly the warm and cosy lining which is what I was looking for. It fits her perfectly - she's a trim 57-year-old!!
