I love Humphrey! Sensitive, thoughtful, with a special talent for listening, as well as a photographic memory, the wonderful central character in this, the third book which I have read in Jemima Pett's original and inspiring series, stole my heart. A loner and an outsider, poor Humphrey finds himself swept up in a maelstrom of events beyond his control when he is caught up in a frightening attack by unknown baddies. Joining forces with some new companions, something which doesn't come easily to a lone guinea pig accustomed to solitude, Humphrey sets off on an unexpected and not entirely welcome adventure. He is soon led into a society of intrigue and violence, where the situation rapidly spirals out of control.

All is not well in guinea pig world and trouble of the worst kind threatens all the castles and kingdoms; terrorism, war, pirates and vampires - what a terrifying combination! How on earth will Humphrey cope? Fortunately for our unlikely hero, his talents are recognised and put to good use in a Special Forces unit and, for the first time, he finds himself working as part of a team. Danger and pitfalls galore await him, however, and his courage is really put to the test. If you want to know whether Humphrey triumphs over adversity, you'll have to read the book for yourself, because I'm not going to tell you!

This was quite a dark story and, at times, rather violent, which some readers may find off-putting. From a personal point of view though, I'm becoming hooked on this series and am thoroughly enjoying the adventures that the intrepid heroes get themselves mixed up in. Beautifully written and with skilful description which brings the scenes alive, the narrative draws you deep into the heart of the action, whilst the characters are so cleverly depicted that you almost find yourself forgetting they are guinea pigs!

Another intricately woven story in the land of the Princelings. This time we journey with Humphrey. A gentle and trepid soul with a talent for listening to things above and beyond the realms of the everyday. Humphrey gets swept up in the urgency of an escape. In the chaos he makes new friends who take him on an adventure which he would only have deemed possible from the books that he has memorised. Oh did I mention he also has a photographic memory.

We are drawn into a tale of intrigue as Ms Pett slowly divulges little snippets of information about each of the new friends. Humphrey plays along, unsure of how he fits into this new world of castles, kings and captains, but things are not always what they seem. A group of terrorists attacks the castle that Humphrey and his friends are doing their best to blend in. He realises he is not alone and his talent for listening comes into play when he is recruited into a special unit.

Humphrey is tested beyond anything he has ever known, unsure of who is friend or foe. Using every ounce of knowledge from his books, combined with his unique and special talents, he bands together with his unit. They must prevail against a force so evil, that it threatens the livelihood of the entire land of the Princelings.

I think this leans much more towards a Young Adult literary read, with its intricate plot, formidable cast and quite violence themes. Again I enjoyed Ms Pett's style of a slow but intriguing pace, in The Talent Seekers.

NB I received this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
