Loved This Book !!!!!,
This review is from: My Sparkling Misfortune (The Lakeland Knight Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I LOVED this book, the author Laura Lond has managed to set the tone perfectly, My Sparkling Misfortune is funny and clever and easy to read, a children's book written minus the dumbing down.
Lord Arkus the main character and protagonist is not a nice man! But he is a likeable baddie, who it would seem everything normally goes right for! But when the Prince K offers him a deal he can refuse, it all goes wrong from there, and his plans all fail, and instead of an evil Gormack in his service, he is captures a far from evil Sparking, and the fun starts.
This is a story of good v evil, but its a theme that never grows old, and the story is so well told that a younger reader wont realise the subtext that exists.
This book will be enjoyed by younger and older readers alike, and as an adult reading this book to review, I can honestly say I enjoyed it, reading most of it with a smile on my face! Older readers will enjoy this book to read independently as a great introduction to the fantasy genre, and younger children can be spell bound listening to a parent read.
