Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Author: Susan Navas
Publisher: Ant Press
Published: June 2014
A superb story, empathetically written with action adventure, heroic behaviour and fighting to save the environment from damage by mining, this book is another riveting adventure for young Agnil, this time involving her visiting a different elfin world which is being threatened by ‘the Navigator’. He is destroying the beautiful world, polluting rivers, chopping down trees, killing wildlife in his quest for more of the very special crystals only found on this planet. You’ll have to read it yourself to find out who she works with and what happens in this, the third book in the series!
Sue’s writing draws you into the story, explaining the issues in ways that children will easily relate to. Teachers could easily use this to help them raise environmental issues with children, helping them develop their understanding of the impact on the environment of the actions of themselves and others. It also explores the desire of children to have their parents together in a considerate manner as Agnil tries to plan to get her parents reunited . . . . Read the book to find out what happens 🙂
I have no hesitation in recommending you to escape into this new magical world with Agnil, meet some characters from the earlier books and some new ones in this latest adventure. I’ll have to wait for the next book in the series to be published, I have no doubt it will be equally enthralling!
This book should be available in your local bookshop, please support them! Should you no longer have a local bookshop, it is also available from amazon.co.uk and Barnes and Noble but Waterstones are slipping as I cannot find it on their site – tut, tut!!
