The Lovereading4Kids comment
A roller coaster adventure that will grab readers from the dramatic dare devil opening and hold them gripped throughout. Luke is only fourteen but he has an adult sized thirst for invention and exploration. Something about his reputation proceeds him as he discovers when he enters the glider he has built for the free-distance flight competition and finds himself almost killed. Why do the Sons of Destiny want to destroy young Luke and his equally intrepid mother Harriet who is busy tracking dinosaurs who have miraculously survived hidden in the depths of the Brazilian jungle? Following the strands of these exciting, interwoven stories is thrilling.
The LoveReading Comment:
An action-packed heart-pounding thriller and historical adventure for 9+ year olds that takes its inspiration from Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic, The Lost World. The legacy of George Challenger’s discovery of the dinosaur inhabited lost world has made his grandson Luke the target of a lethal group of assassins, who are determined to exploit this world for their own ends. Luke must find his kidnapped mother and overcome their enemies, but his life and the survival of the world hang in the balance.
