4.0 von 5 Sternen Book 1 of the Gryphon Chronicles, 3. Januar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Heir (The Gryphon Chronicles, Book 1) (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Jake is an orphan living on the streets of London during the reign of Queen Victoria. After his twelfth birthday he suddenly gains magical abilities, and strange men show up and try to kill him. It turns out that the men were sent by his uncle who killed Jake’s parents and stole his title and fortune. Now, Jake not only has to struggle to survive the next few days but must also learn to control his new abilities, all the while reclaiming his birthright.

One thing I liked about this book is that the children in the story really behave like children and not like miniature adults. They’re stubborn, rash, outspoken, occasionally insensitive, and will break the rules for a bag of candy. That being said, they’re also warmhearted, loyal, and great fun to be with.
I also liked the descriptions of places like the market in London. They’re very vivid and convey a sense of the time without taking over whole chapters. The story is rich in detail about magic and mystical creatures, but the focus of the story is definitely on the action which is non-stop and makes the book quite unputdownable.
The only thing which bothered me is that the storyline hinges quite strongly on some big coincidences. I don’t mind when some small coincidences occur, but the story looks contrived if the resolution of the whole book depends on them.

The reading level of this book is about the same as in the books about Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or Artemis Fowl. And if you enjoyed any of these, then you’ll probably enjoy this one, too.
