Genre – Children’s adventure
Without giving too much away this book revolves around the adventures of Jack Hunter (12) and his faithful new friends as he tries to unearth the secrets and treasure of an ancient mystery passed down to him by his grandfather. It has the charm of Indiana Jones meets the famous five, and some hidden clues coupled with a clever online interactive `treasure hunt’ definitely demonstrates the potential for an addictive and well designed children’s series.

The book itself reads well, is incredibly imaginative, and the storyline is as unpredictable as it is fast-paced. There is also just the right balance of historical factoids and fictional myth to encourage the reader to perhaps find out more about the English monarchy without being overbearing.
It’s clear that it has been independently/self-published by a few (but not overbearing) typographical errors, but as Ebooks are not as tied to the final version as much as paperbacks, this can be easily fixed. Otherwise I found it well-written and difficult to put down (even as an older reader).
