I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Legend of the Lost, the first in Ian’s much anticipated changeling trilogy and have to say I was certainly not disappointed.
Sure he’s written this for the 7-11 core readership because he wants to encourage parents to read it to their children as he enjoyed doing. But it’s a thrilling heroic journey for adults and children alike.
It’s packed with interesting characters, amazing, fantastical creatures and the action pulsates throughout.
Some wonderful setting from beautiful Cornish setting through to atmospheric forests act as a fine backdrop to a strong and touching central story.
I don’t want to say too much to spoil the many surprises but I have no doubt you and your kids will be enthralled from start to finish which comes way too soon. Can’t wait for the sequel, which I understand is part-set in Africa and judging by the talking animals in this, it should be another “must read”.
Would make a great film……
