When I heard this book had been released I just had to buy myself a copy! I really enjoyed the earlier three books in the series (‘The Rise of Agnil’, ‘Agnil and the Wizard’s Orb’ and ‘Agnil and the Tree Spirits’ – click on the title to see my reviews of them) and wanted to know what happened next, I wasn’t disappointed. This is another great adventure for Agnil, involving her travelling between our human world and that of the elves in an effort to help them translate the Centaur’s book. The book is a great treasure but no one can read the old Centaur language any more. However there is a special stone, the Amazon stone which, like the Rosetta stone, is actually the key to translating the forgotten written language. The key to getting the Amazon stone is actually Agnil. In this latest adventure she’ll need to work with her dad’s girlfriend and a professor from Cambridge to help her mother’s people discover the secrets contained in the book.

Another enthralling adventure with mysteries, villains, secrets and emotional turmoil all expertly mixed to make this a great addition to this superb series for children. Agnil is a feisty young heroine, undaunted by the challenges put before her. The story also explores how Agnil relates to all the adults involved in her life, showing how circumstances can alter perceptions and having a common enemy can help make new friends and allies. The book is illustrated throughout by images which enhance the enjoyment of the story. Another brilliant tale from this talented author for children which I have no hesitation in highly recommending!
