The Lovereading4Kids comment
An action-packed adventurous tale for young adults with an added magical touch of the mystical dancing across the pages. A treat of three books in one, we follow brave and capable Lizzy from the age of 14 as she struggles to break a family curse. Short punchy chapters and beautiful descriptive detailing make this extremely readable. Travelling from Yorkshire to London, India and Spain, each location is vividly brought to life, along with the difficulties Lizzy faces. Occasionally there are sudden or unexplained additions or changes which creates a further edge to proceedings. Murder, intrigue, and excitement abound, however, there are reminders of the intolerance and discrimination that can be found on the different branches of life. As you follow the moon in each of its phases through to the end, Lizzy grows in confidence and determination, ensuring a dramatic but fitting end to the adventures of the Moonstone.. ~ Liz Robinson
The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy by Diana De Gunzburg, Tony Wild
“Hugely enjoyable”, “most entertaining and enlightening”, “educational”, and “excellent”. These are some of the words used by many reviewers (who include William Dalrymple and Michael Morpurgo) to describe The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy. And those are just the words beginning with ‘e’.
The trilogy defies categorisation – part East/West epic, part historical fiction, part family saga, part mystery adventure, part spiritual exploration and part science fiction, this fascinating multi-faceted book appeals to readers of all ages, colours and creeds, and has them “gripped to the pages” as they follow Lizzy Abercrombie, the young heroine, through her exciting adventures towards the trilogy’s breathtakingly cosmic conclusion.
Themes of gender equality and religious tolerance seamlessly meld with explorations of beliefs, multiculturalism and the nature of the universe as this sizzling page-turner literally plays out under the waxing and waning of the moon – uniquely, every one of its hundred and seventy chapters shows the exact phase of the moon during which events take place.
“‘Why is the universe so suited to life?’ In successfully dramatising this compelling question, The Moonstone Legacy takes the reader on a thrilling voyage of mind and imagination, yet at the same time keeps us firmly rooting for our brave, funny and funky heroine through all her terrifying ordeals.” Anja C Andersen, Astronomer and Professor of Dark Cosmology, University of Copenhagen
“A compulsive and entertaining read with gripping modulations every few bars. Hugely enjoyable.” Michael Berkeley, presenter of BBC Radio 3’s “Private Passions”
“The Moonstone Legacy is the most entertaining and enlightening book I’ve read in years! It speaks to all of us on a deep and resounding level, reawakening the childlike wonder and unfettered courage we should all live our lives by. If you read nothing else this year, the transformational power of The Moonstone Legacy is a must!” Susyn Blair-Hunt, MsD (Doctor of Metaphysics), Psychic, Astrologer, Metaphysical Consultant
