5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow-up,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)Lionboy is a unique, rich plot that carries on strong in The Chase, sequel to Lionboy. The authors have set it in a future world that is not unlike our own world today, adding a haunting backdrop to this otherwise positive story. Some previous reviews of Lionboy mentioned that it was easy to tell that one of the authors was a child, as some of the text was blander than other parts, but I tried to distinguish the bland parts of this book and couldn't find any. There's strong dialogue and description, and plenty of imagination, especially concerning the mysterious lion-like creature Primo.
The end of the book is reasonably cheerful, but the final sentence very clearly tells the reader that the story is certainly not over. I can't wait to read Lionboy: The Truth, the third book in the trilogy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual - And Utterly Brilliant,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)Hi,
I'm 15 Years Old - and the closest thing you will ever find to an expert on all major fictional spy series ever published in English, From James Bond - to Cherub and Alex Rider - without talking to the authors themselves.
I bought the entire series at once, after emphatic reviews of "Lionboy" claimed it to be a brilliant read. I have to completely agree. The concept of a boy speaking "cat" is fascinating, and one that I have never remotely come across in the hundreds of children's and teenage fiction books I have read. Corder (the name adopted by the two authors) has a fantastic writing style, that is both intelligent and inthralling, allowing you to appreciate the book as both a brilliant read and a genuinely well written piece of literature. The language is not too demanding for a well read 11 or 12 year old, though I would advise 13 and upwards as a benchmark, as the language does get more difficult at times. That would be the only thing I could see putting some children off. Please do not think I am specifying children to read this though. I would encourage everyone, young and old alike, to try this book, and the entire series with it. It is completely original, and completely brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rely on the lion!,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)Bought this after reading the first book in the series (not realising that it was part of a series until I got to the end of the book!) and have thrououghly enjoyed them all. Read all three to my two sons at bedtimes, but I had to read them myself first as I couldn't wait that long to find out what happened! Well written, easy to understand storyline, and quite exciting - would recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chase - as exciting as Lionboy.,
This review is from: The Chase (Lionboy Trilogy) (Paperback)I think it is quite sad that someone very young is taken away from his family.I also think it's very exciting for someone his age to go to Italy and France and wouldn't it be amazing to be able to speak cat and be in a circus with lions and escape from the circus with them.
This review was completed by my child.
5.0 out of 5 stars Arrived on time,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)Book arrived on time and my 13-year old son tells me that it's a very good read. His elder sister also very much enjoyed it. Recommended by both my childrens' schools.
4.0 out of 5 stars the chase,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)another success for my son these are well written and very capture the imagination for boys a good read thanks
4.0 out of 5 stars Good travel time story,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase: v. 2 (Audio CD)I find audio books are good to use in the car while journeying. This book was well read and so maintained interest. The premis of a cat talking boy is a bit of a stretch on reality but accepting that it is a charming GOOD versus EVIL story. The young hero has to strive against may challenges before succes is achieved. A good story for children of all ages.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lion Boy: The Chase,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase: The Chase (Kindle Edition)Having read and enjoyed "The Lion Boy" and enjoyed it greatly I tucked into this book with relish. Tremendous story of a boys adventures with a group of lions he befriended in their attempt to get back to the home pride. Who do they trust and are those they think they can trust really on their side. Fast moving and attention grabbing action through out kept me on the edge of my seat unable to put the book down.
4.0 out of 5 stars A great read for an 8-year old boy,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase (Paperback)My son loved this and can't wait to start the next book in the trilogy. It really encouraged him to read independently.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book!,
This review is from: Lionboy: The Chase: The Chase (Kindle Edition)Having read Lion Boy with my 9 year old son, we could not wait to read The Chase. We were not disappointed! The story becomes even more exciting and compelling. At times it has the reader on the edge of their seat, other times it is so funny that you laugh out load.
We desperately wanted to know where Charlie and the lions would take us next but at the same time did not want the book to end.
We ave already ordered the last book and bought lots of copies of the first for Christmas presents. Definitely recommend this book.
