Today I’m going to review a magical adventure. It is a really good book for teenagers. Books like these gets me closer to my childhood and keep the child in me alive. These books always bring a smile on my face!
Set in both the future and present day, Spellbound Chronicles is a fast-paced children’s story with twists and turns, good versus evil, set above and below ground. Spellbound Chronicles tells the story of Larna and Aron who, while geocaching in the ancient Sherwood Forest, find themselves reluctantly pulled through time into a Sherwood of the future. Faced with the task of fighting to save an enslaved and fast-mutating race from extinction, they set out with the formidable wizard, Balgaire, and his friends to take on the might of the fearsome warlock, Mordrog. A battle for wands, destruction and kidnapping ensues, with a hint of romance thrown in, in the form of underground shape shifter Cai. As the final epic battle takes place, will Larna and Aron survive the fight long enough to return unscathed to their own time and their own Sherwood..? Inspired by other fantasy authors such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien and J.K. Rowling, Suzanne and Eve have created a breathlessly exciting story that will delight children aged 8+ and teenagers alike. Touching on the new subject of geocaching, a form of treasure hunting that came to the UK from America, the book is also raising money for charity to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease.
My Review –
Two young siblings go to visit their grandmother at the Sherwood Forest. Some strange things start happening with them, they start travelling to future through the magical portal. In the future, they help their descendants to fight an evil sorcerer and help them to heal a strange disease.
The story is entertaining full of magic and magical creatures. It also has elements of a si-fi, the entire thing of mutated DNA which caused people to have tails etc. Since the DNA of siblings is pure, it can be used as a healer. The story it a great combination of science and fantasy.
The characters are described really well and the scenes seem really real. I totally fell in love with the characters. The story is fast passed and the book transports the reader to a mysterious world.
The language is simple, however, I noticed a few errors which I really don’t mind as the book is a real page turner.
The first book is really promising. I’m sure the second one will be the same or better!
Overall, it is a fun and easy read. The story is great and is really fast paced. I would recommend it to all the parents for their teenage kids or even if you are like me and love books like Harry Potter.
I would rate it 4/5 and looking forward to read the second part of the series.
I received this book from the author in return for an honest review.
