We've yet to finish reading, and I'm hoping the end meets expectations...
Back in p7 our class got a visit from Cliff McNish, he came to speak to us about writing and his books, and honestly its one of my favourite memories from my childhood? It really stuck with me, even now I'll remember it smile (or cringe, because we had to write a short story ourselves and well, I was only eleven.). But yeah, I know he probably wont see this but Cliff, if you remember Whitfield Primary and the class you visited (and even if you don't), thank you.
Scenes and characters here are quite extraordinary and, whilst some imagery is perturbing, the author's imagination is astounding. I particularly liked the way in which the relationship between Thomas and Milo was developed. Can't wait to see how all the strange and diverting characters fare in the next book of the sequence.
The blend of fantasy and normality makes an incredible mixture in all of Cliff's novels and this is no exception!
The book is about a group of children who are all summoned to the same place. They leave happy family homes and run to a dangerous wasteland, Coldharbour.
The reason for this only becomes clear at the end of the story, and even then all is not explained.
If you enjoy gripping fantasy then I would recommend this to you! Although the book can be disturbing and you feel as though it should be longer no one should let this put them off!
It is incredibly well written and the story line will keep you wanting more until the end and beyond!
Definitely worth reading!
