3.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting attempt, 16 Dec 2008
This review is from: The Dagger of Death (Secret World of Ivor Culldragon) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In the Secret World of Ivor Culldragon the author has made an attempt to use a different concept for their story with having the main character apeear to travel through time to affect the past.

Ivor Culldragon is a teacher who after an "incident" at his school has decided to leave the job and return to wales to stay with his sister and nephew at the old family home. He gets a job at the local library/museum which job caters to his interest in history and discovery which he inherited from his father who was an explorer who vanished under mysterious circumstances on his last expedition and he is working with the strange and scary Miss Loop who doesn't want him looking in an old black trunk in the store room.

One Saturday when on his own Ivor decides to dig out the old ruin at the bottom of the garden and while doing so finds a relic he falls asleep and wakes to find himself now a teenager in pre roman Britain working for the local blacksmith. Ivor finds himself in the middle of intrigue and plots which culminates with the romans invading. He suddenly finds himself back in the present having changed the past.

Ms Bonner obviously knows her history and the celtic period and is trying to incorporate this into her story to stimulate the interest of her readers. This is also planned as the first of a series of books in which presumably Ivor finds out about his missing father and has more adventures in the past.

This is aimed at the younger reader and the length is appropriate for that age group with enough adventure to stimulate their interest.
