3.0 out of 5 stars 1920's Africa with modern heroine.
The character of Jade grows on you and by the end I could well consider reading the next book to see what she got up to. The author has researched her era and area which is interesting- British East Africa, now Kenya. Description of the characters and environs would have been nice to really help you visualise and engage you more;it was all a bit sparse style wise...

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping adventure., 9 Jan 2011
This review is from: Stalking Ivory: Number 2 in series (Jade del Cameron) (Paperback)
Jade Del Cameron is on an assignment in the northern territory of Mount Marsabit to photograph elephants. Before long Jade runs into ivory poachers. She also makes friends with a local Kikuyu boy but when he is captured as a slave Jade embarks on a rescue mission.

I am all gung ho with Jade, but even from the safety of my arm chair I cannot envisage taking on a gang of poachers in the 1920's. Wow!

Although in an earlier adventure Jade was being pursued by one Harry Hascombe, she has to date keep her distance, but in this adventure she meets Sam Featherstone and from the look of things she may need his help, but will this wilful intrepid heroin accept help from a mere male?

It's again a gripping adventure. I understand that there are six in the series, I am already eagerly awaiting episode three. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Stalking Ivory: Number 2 in series (Jade del Cameron) (Paperback)
The character of Jade grows on you and by the end I could well consider reading the next book to see what she got up to. The author has researched her era and area which is interesting- British East Africa, now Kenya. Description of the characters and environs would have been nice to really help you visualise and engage you more;it was all a bit sparse style wise. However, as the audience is young adults I am guessing the idea is to create an "easy read". I skipped a fair bit at the start but settled down to it more at the end, despite guessing the outcome of the villain of the piece. A nice touch at the very end. Atmospheric.
