Dark Solstice (Monsters of Lyonesse)
Dark Solstice (Monsters of Lyonesse)
by Sam Llewellyn
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars From a master of imagination, 15 Jun. 2010
Dark Solstice is a great book by Sam Llewellyn. It is the second in the series and is amazingly well imagined.

The story is about Idris, a boy who became a king, but he is a king in exile as the Regiment Fish Eagle, a cross between human and monster tries to kill him and sink the land of Lyonesse.

An awesome read and also the first book The Well between the Worlds is extremely good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic online enhancement, 6 May 2010
This review is from: SKELETON CREEK (Paperback)
Skeleton Creek is an excellent horror-mystery book by Patrick Carman. The plot is that in a small town in America, Ryan and Sarah have been researching about the old abandoned dredge on the outskirts of town. After a terrifying encounter and a broken leg at the dredge which leaves Ryan unable to explore, Sarah decides to explore and send him videos of what she finds. A shocking discovery, a secret society and a ghost who does not want people snooping around, Ryan and Sarah have to race to uncover the dredges secrets before it goes up in flames. An excellent book with passwords which enable you to watch the videos, I highly recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a child's perspective..., 12 April 2010
This reveiw was written by my 9 year old grand-daughter as she was enjoying the book so much!

This book is a very funny book. It has good pictures and some funny jokes and you learnt lots about the history of Oxford that you wouldn't know. I think that grown ups might like it as well as children because it has lots of good facts. It was like a grown up version of a Horrible History and was a bit more factual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls will love this princess adventure, 12 April 2010
This review is from: The Princess Trap (Paperback)
Jenna only found out that she was a Princess in the 'Ruaritainian' land of Scandia as a teenager and she now having to cope with life in the spotlight where her every mistake can end up as front page news...and there are people around her who are keen to ensure that they do! It is a fast paced read full of trials, intrigues, misunderstandings, political coups and of course that special boy..........Jonas. A great read from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to the history of London, 12 April 2010
Horrible History: London is a great addition to the series. It is easy and fun to read with great facts about all the gory bits in it. It is an easy and great way of learning history, even for the most reluctant. It suited for all ages, even my dad who is 73 thought it was very humorous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big, bold and lots of fun, 24 Mar. 2010
This is a fantastic book for children to make lots of really funny combinations which will make them squeal with laughter. By turning the split pages - 4 per page - randomly the most ridiculous situations appear with a seemingly limitless number of daft combinations. And best of all children can turn the pages and combinations by themselves! Fabulous Nick Sharratt illustrations and big bold colours make this a really attractive book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suitably spooky!, 22 Feb. 2010
This is packed full of spooky stories and perfect for anyone who enjoys and wants to find out more about mysteries and curses. It debunks fantasies and urban myths, but is full of gritty facts and is well illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series keeps getting better..., 22 Feb. 2010
Zero Moment is a great novel by M. G. Harris. It is full of action, adventure and mystery.

A heart stopping adventure, the third in the series this book is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Royal Story Anastasia, 19 Feb. 2010
Anastasia's story is one that ends tragically and this book shows the very privileged and sheltered life she led in the various palaces owned by the Romanovs in Russia in the last century. Her family possessed fabulous wealth which contrasted greatly with the poverty of the majority of her father's subjects. However although set against a political background this is the story of a family, of four sisters and a brother with a life threatening illness and how they lived day to day in a country both at peace and at war and the impact the changing times had on them. It helps make shadowy historical figures become real people and I recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Royal Story: Victoria, 19 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Victoria (My Story) (Paperback)
We all see Queen Victoria as the little old lady dressed in black who was 'not amused' but once she was a young girl full of the joy of life and the sort of hopes, fears and dreams that are common to many. This book tells the story of two years of her life in diary form, which is particularly apt in this case as Victoria actually kept a diary all her life parts of which were published during her lifetime. This book gives a fascinating glimpse into her life at Kensington palace before she became Queen, where she led a rather solitary life although in the constant company of others.
