Shadowsea Reader Reviews

Shadowsea

Sarah

Shadowsea is a fast-paced adventure story set in New York where Lily, Robert and Malkin are literally thrown into a scary adventure in search for answers and to help the poor mute boy being held captive by his aunt. Or is he? A must-read for Spring!

This final Cogheart adventure takes place in and around a booming New York. The children and Malkin come across a mystery whilst in the hotel on their first night and, as always, takes you on a journey to find out the truth.

Secret messages start to come, adults are tricked to avoid getting caught... it's all tense!

The twists are unpredictable and new characters enter the story from all angles - it all adds to the scary but exciting adventure to save the poor boy. Or maybe he isn't all that innocent?

I really liked the settings of old fashioned New York with all the famous places they visit. Although scary in places, especially zombies and trapped situations, I couldn't put this book down!

I think both boys and girls 10+ will enjoy this book, especially if you have already met the characters in Cogheart.

Shadowsea is a brilliant adventure story that is wonderfully illustrated. I read the story to my daughter and she loved the tale which was a real page-turner.

Shadowsea is an excellent children's book. It was a bit too old for my 7-year-old but she enjoyed me reading it to her.

The characters Malkin, Lily and Robert are involved in an exciting adventure that starts at their hotel and leads to underwater action.

Kids will love this and I enjoyed reading it to my daughter.

The book is well illustrated and has a nice feel to it.
