The Lost Knight by Candy Atkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
***** 5 Cranky Stars *****
What a feast of a book! I felt physically ill when I turned the page and realised that I had reached the end of the book.
Agatha Stone is 13 and lives with her foster parents, Aunty and Uncle. The day after her 13th birthday she realises that her life as she knew it had come to an abrupt end.
A Grand Wizard tries to intimidate her, Aunty was her prison guard, she meets Jonah, a Knight Krawler who resembles The Grim Reaper from popular literature. He saves her from the Grand Wizard and takes her to an alternate reality called Ashra whose inhabitants include Fairies, elves unicorns Pegusus and many other beings.
Agatha bonds with Jonah as a type of father figure and she is a typical 13 year old who battles to understand that she is considered the savior of 2 worlds. Jonah and The fairy prince Dathid accompany her on a quest of self discovery.
The author possess the ability to take a concept that is difficult to understand and put it into easy to understand and read language. I am EAGERLY awaiting the next installment in the series. This book is suited to a wide range of ages.
I am thrilled to award 5 stars to this marvelous offering
