Incredibly good, I d give it 6 stars if I could, read it, you should
I am torn about this book There is no denying that the finale is a brilliantly written piece of maritime action and the end left me wanting But before that, I also cannot deny that I was bored with this book, glad it was so short.I will gladly admit, this is probably a great book for young readers The conflict and the characters feel real and the plot may be a bit formulaic but works really well There is one emotional impact that serves as a way to make the story forceful instead of shocking I [...]
Tim Ryan is not quite caught shoplifting owing to a little help but gets in trouble, and finds himself shipped off from Melbourne to an island where his grandmother lives.The source of his help comes too Aed, a spirit of air and darkness but it notes that his plane is followed through the waters by a selkie.And on the island, we have the tale of a city mouse in the countryside, the tale of a boy growing up, and the tale of his heritage and why the selkie came looking for him It involves beer, a [...]
Very enjoyable story It s been a while since I read it back when it first came out , and I still remember how much I liked it.
Tim Ryan s father is out of the picture, his mother would rather not be bothered by him, and the girl he is infatuated with is pure trouble When Tim gets in a scrape with the law, his parents send him to his grandmother on isolated Flinders Island The culture shock from urban Melbourne to rural Flinders is great, and Tim can t wait until he can escape.One of the joys of reading is getting to visit new places and having vicarious experiences through the author s characters Mr Freer s description [...]
If I didn t know that Dave Freer has written a bunch of fine fantasy, I might have thought this was a collaboration between Margaret Mahy and Tom Dietz It has many of the elements which delighted me in their work Dietz s Faery with local influences and Mahy s troubled young protagonist with the flavor of Antipodean supernatural Since I love both their work, this book gets a big, Hurray from me No wonder Tim Ryan is a confused young kid in Melbourne His divorced parents are caught up their own li [...]
This was a very good book with a great hook that just reeled you into the story Different than a lot of the modern world fantasy stories out there in that it feels like it could be real Setting was interesting and just enjoyable Great read and highly recommended That s no fish tale at all
this is a masterful coming of age story had me smiling, laughing and crying with the characters subtle, strong and flowing are the best words I can find to describe it I enjoy the authors work, but this story had me literally entranced from the first page.
If you like Sharon Lee s Archer series, then you are sure to enjoy this one An excellent story, and one I d like to see from, but this one stands alone very well, so if there are no , that s ok too.
I absolutely fell in love with the story, the place and the people.
A little short, but still an excellent read Maybe mr Freer will makes it a series
This book is an entry in the Aurealis Awards for 2016, for which I am a judge Any review will be withheld until the results of the awards are announced.
Pretty good kid s fantasy, mixing the classic Fair Folk, with Native Austrailian myth.
Don t pick it up too late in the day, you might not put it down till it s done You ve been warned.
Wonderful coming of age urban fantasy Very enjoyable.
