Synopsis

The Adventures of Blake and Mortimer Secret of the Swordfish, Part 1 by Edgar P. Jacobs

In a past almost, but not entirely, like ours, the world lives in dread of a new power, an empire centred in Tibet and led by a megalomaniac. When the inevitable attack comes, it destroys all opposition, and capital cities across the planet are left burning. But, in Great Britain, Professor Mortimer, inventor of a mysterious weapon named the Swordfish, and his friend and protector Captain Blake, have escaped the destruction, and must make their way to a secret base...

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
