Action and Adventure Fiction, Fantasy Fiction and Science Fiction for 9 Years Up To Teens.
1st in the CosmicAviators Series.
Twelve-year old Nathaniel Ravenscroft discovers he has telekinetic skills. When neighbour Doctor Crisp dies, he bequeaths a magical wristwatch to Nathaniel. Fantastic events unfold, household objects move by themselves and a hologram of Doctor Crisp appears. Nathaniel meets a cosmic boy called Theodore Firestar. Theodore explains that the existence and progression of the Cosmos relies on the golden radiance of ten special golden pentacles.
Nathaniel's dog, Otto, falls into the fourth dimension where Nathaniel meets Ruben and Octavia, aliens from another planet. They unite as the Cosmic Aviators, each armed with a gifted watch and rocket boots for space travel.
Ruben and Octavia tell Nathaniel about an evil man called Sebastian who is aided by pilot demons called Maxidroids. Sebastian is slowly destroying Ruben and Octavia's home planet. Nathaniel is shocked when he finds out that the evil Sebastian is his Uncle Sebastian from Littlehampton, U.K. His mind reminisces about a time when he overheard his uncle talk of the “Curse of the black diamonds” giving him the “Dark edge on reality”. Nathaniel realises that his uncle has been living a double life thriving on evil and contempt.
Can Nathaniel stop his uncle from destroying planet Granberg and planet Earth? Can Nathaniel and the other Cosmic Aviators stop The Dark Triangle of Odium, Maximus (the Maxidroid leader) and the Maxidroids from destroying the Universe?

I cannot wait to see what book the author comes up with next. I loved Neilson's voice in the book. The European touch on this book was a refreshing break from American literature, and my siblings thoroughly enjoyed it too. They say that any good book is an autobiography, and that is displayed very well in this book. It shows her imagination and how creative the author can get
Overall, I would recommend this book to any tween (around 10-13 years of age) but would say that it is an enjoyable book for anyone looking for a fast paced read. I heartily applaud the author, and look forward to other works by her.
The storyline is very different compared to most of the books available for his age group. There are some interesting characters and they are really well described so it was easy for him to get into this book. He wanted to read it all in one go. Otto the dog quickly became our favourite character and the Elfinriddlers were hilarious.
The book is well written and the story is easy to follow. It's a very funny and imaginative adventure. The writing isn't patronising or babyish and there are plenty of challenging words. The fact that the villain is Nathaniel's uncle who is leading a double life gives a good twist to the story and introduces a moral dilemma.
I recommend this book for any children who like adventure or science fiction stories. This is the first book in the series and I'll definitely be buying the others.
