Yes yes yes! I read the first book to my daughter who LOVED it and then we discovered this one – book number two and it didn’t disappoint at all. It’s a really good alternative to Harry Potter if you have run out of Potter books. The plots are complex and intriguing and you have to concentrate, as the world Everest has created, has its own rules and language. I would urge you to read these in order – this is the second one. There is now also a third one – hooray. Mr Everest could we please have a fourth one, or is that being greedy?
Have been busy recommending these books to my Year 5 class. I’d say these would be suitable for 8yrs (possibly to be read to) up to 14yrs. Having said that I really enjoyed it too and it was a very long time ago that I was 14!
