4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful adventure with a mystery, 22 Nov 2011
This review is from: Overcast (The 01:23 Bardo, Book 1 of 6) (Kindle Edition)
Note: I was given a copy of this book by the author.

Overcast is the first book in The 01:23 Bardo series by young British author, Ryan O'Riordan. It is an exciting adventure with an element of mystery and reminiscence of Enid Blyton's The Famous Five series but updated for the modern audience.

In Overcast, Rebecca Conner has spent the last 3 years grieving the lost of her brother Ben. Instead of moving on with her life, she imagines her brother is hiding from a notorious London Mob Boss named Frank Magnus and the two of them are secretly working together to bring Magnus down.

Rebecca was content with her made up world but one night she is hit by a car and suddenly everything Rebecca dreamt became real. She learns that Magnus has taken Ben and he's also sent a hitman after her. Rebecca must now take the fight to Magnus in London and bring her brother back.

O'Riordan does great characterisation with truly developed and believable characters. Rebecca is a convincingly strong character and despite everything thrown at her in an unfamiliar world, she still puts on a brave face and get through them. To help support Rebecca in her journey, she is joined by her best friend and the pseudo-new kid Freddie. The trio shows a wonderful chemistry together and forms an incredible crime solving team.

Towards the end of the book, Rebecca notices that not all is quite right in her made up world and there seems to be other forces at work in shaping the world...

Overall Overcast is an excellent and exciting book with likeable characters. If you like adventure with a bit of mystery then definitely give this book a go.
