The Lovereading4Kids comment
If you’ve not yet introduced yourself to Deary's Fire Thief series then you must – a series that reinvents, in a more contemporary setting, the myth of Prometheus. The Fire Thief was published to much acclaim earlier this year and Julia Eccleshare said it was ‘a rollicking good read’. The Flight of the Fire Thief is the second in the trilogy and I can safely say it’s awesome. The author deftly entwines two plots through the creation of some terrifically likeable characters, in particular, Nell, a 12 year old girl, time travel and a murky, rather seedy cityscape. It’s a great read.
Flight of the Fire Thief by Terry Deary
International best-selling author Terry Deary reinvents the myth of Prometheus, the Titan who stole fire from the gods and gave it to the human race. To escape the gods' revenge, Prometheus travels through time to a murky metropolis called Eden City. There he befriends a motley assortment of comic characters and learns what humans have done with his gift of fire. Enter our narrator: the resourceful and plucky 12 year old Nell. She and her crafty Pa travel the city with their stage show getting their audiences to open up their pockets and purses. With the help of Nell, Terry Deary masterfully interweaves two plots, with the action jumping at a whirlwind pace from a ramshackle Eden City of 1795 to Mount Olympus. Meet Zeus, Hera, Achilles and Paris - but as you've never seen them before...Prometheus has a soft spot for humans in need, but using his powers to get his new friends out of trouble will betray his hiding place to the gods!
