Best books in the world. I love the adjectives and descriptions. I'm your biggest fan!
I love them all so far!
My older sister read FERNO to me when we were on holiday and that inspired me to read more of the Beast Quest books. I am pleased with myself because I have never read a whole set of books before in my life because I am dyslexic. Your books make me want to read.
I have outgrown Horrid Henry and my friend told me about these books! I like your books because they are very exciting.
About the Author
Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles - which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam's father said they were a Blade family heirloom.
As a boy, Adam would spend days imagining who could have first owned the sword and shield. Eventually, he created a character - Tom, the bravest boy warrior of them all. The idea for Beast Quest was born.
When Adam grew up and decided that he wanted to be a writer, he was stuck for ideas - until he remembered the old sword and shield, and the imaginary boy he had created when he was young. Adam decided to bring Tom fully to life so that readers could go on the kind of adventures that he always wanted to when he was that age... And still does, even though he's grown up!
When he's not writing Beast Quest and Sea Quest books, Adam enjoys visiting museums and ancient battle sites. His main hobbies are fencing and football. He also spends a lot of time at home running around after his two exotic pets - a tarantula named Ziggy, and a capuchin monkey named Omar. These little rascals were the inspiration for two of the Beasts that Tom faces on his Quest - Arachnid and Claw.

We are in the dark realm in this book, a more frightening and violent place than the original series. The detail of the location is again well done with a ruined, sinister castle and a crazed evil wizard.
Suitable for young readers from six up, with illustrations; if they don't mind scary stories.
