3.0 out of 5 stars A mix of science fiction and magic, 11 Oct. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Moon Stealers and The Quest for the Silver Bough (Fantasy Dystopian Books for Teenagers) (Kindle Edition)
I was given this book free to read and review.
This is I assume a book aimed at younger readers and part of a serial so it is only worth reading if you are going to persevere with the series. Although an interesting story which has an unusual mix of types and although horror/adventure it somehow does not manage to convey the horror or excitement that the story requires. The actual start of the story has been worked many times with meteorites landing on earth bringing with them an alien bacteria. Where this differs from the others is that the flesh eating bacteria evolves into creatures in a remarkably short time and proceeds to terrorise everyone. Thrown into this are some children, a 1000ish year old knight and a couple of investigators from MI6. The quest in the title is undertaken by the children and the Knight seeking the magic "Silver Bough". No doubt all the strands will come together in later volumes however I do not think the story engaging enough to read the next one.
