The Lovereading4Kids comment
An extraordinarily imaginative adventure with the ultimate hero in Johnny Mackintosh. Exceptionally believable, lovable and fun characters, the writing is engaging and accomplished and reminiscent of J. K. Rowling. 13 year old Johnny lives in a children’s home but when extraordinary things begin to happen to him he decides to go on the run to search for some answers. Little does he know as he sets off that having been caught by aliens he’ll end up on a spectacular journey through time and space; through old worlds and new ones and the lost city of Atlantis, before finally discovering the truth about his parents, who he really is and may be find his way back home to earth.
Johnny Mackintosh and the Spirit of London by Keith Mansfield
When thirteen-year-old Johnny's talking computer Kovac detects an extraterrestrial signal, his life is set to change for ever. Until then, stuck in his children's home in Castle Dudbury New Town, with the nasty cook Mr Wilkins watching his every move, football had been his only escape. But soon things start happening around him that Johnny doesn't understand: why is his mother, who is on life support in a hospital for the criminally insane, being guarded by sinister looking men? And why was a journalist murdered shortly after Johnny talked to him? When Johnny finds out he has a sister, he decides to run away to find her.
His search for answers takes him farther from home than he could ever have imagined, on a spectacular journey through time and space. Along the way he visits new worlds, prehistoric Earth and the lost city of Atlantis before finally discovering the truth about his parents and who he really is.
'Lots of action, twists and turns of plot, and a generous dollop of suspense make for a page-turning adventure that is, I think, just the ticket for a sci-fi loving upper middle grade reader'
's Library. Charlottes Library 'an intelligent, engaging addition to the genre, with a likeable hero in the person of Johnny ... infectious energy in the writing style'
