    One thought on “The Drowned Kingdom”

    1. This was an enjoyable adventure, having the right combination of danger and solace for a short book. Quinn's test at the end I found fascinating and the way she handled it as well as the was Sebastian took a step back and supported her were beautiful parts of the story. All the characters have had a lot of growth and it is nice not to have Tom and Sebastian snarling at each other anymore. Sebastian perhaps has grown the most out of any of them.I'm not mad on stereotypes such as "hell hath no fur [...]

    2. The fourth part of this five-book series. The story is starting to ramp up now, with story threads coming together. There's plenty of standard tropes here, but I can't help feeling that if I had read this series as a 10-year-old, I would have been in absolute love with it. On with the final part!

    3. This series is really hitting its stride, with excellent interplay between the characters, strong and creative worldbuilding, and a gripping story that keeps young readers engaged (and often keeps them guessing). The characters have grown a great deal in a short time, but are still believable young people that one can't help but root for. The animal/magical beast characters have important roles to play too, and have developed unique personalities. A great choice for middle-grade kids almost read [...]

    4. Yet another gripping installment in this thrilling, magical, adventure series. My daughter and I can't wait to read the final book!

    5. This series is aimed at primary school age so it was a little young for me, but I still found it interesting. Since they're so short and I could just read it in one sitting I didn't find it too slow, but I don't think there was enough tension and stakes.The characters are your typical primary fantasy adventure cliche. There's the big strong warrior boy who's working to get his father to be proud of him. There's the smart boy who knows a lot of useful stuff. The noble girl. The smart witch appren [...]

    6. 4th in 'The Impossible Quest' series for children. It is a very good series - for children.I (and my 'library children') are waiting on the 5th and final episode. It is due out next month.I gave this one 3 stars (ILO 4) because (as an adult) it has become a formulaic and join-the-dots predictable. I realize that this is harsh - because the book wasn't written for me. One of my library kids devoured all 4 and is hanging out for number 5. She had no complaints about them at all. Nevertheless, it w [...]

    7. This is my second favorite of the series. Events get really exciting when the four set sail to find the Drowned Kingdom and the eerie sea serpents, which is the last item they need to awaken the sleeping warriors. More surprises are thrown at the readers (I had to write a diagram to understand some things; was that just me or did it get a little confusing there?!) and we learn who is behind the whole enchanting/controlling Wolfhaven scheme. I am sad the series is drawing near the end, but at the [...]

    8. Forsyth does a lot of telling in this huge story told in 30,000 words or so. Very ambitious, maybe too ambitious. It didn't leave much space for the showing part of story telling. Some of the concepts - love, betrayal, revenge, sacrifice - might be a little advanced for the intended audience. The character, Githa, was too big for the book. She was a tragic figure and, because the book wasn't about her, given no chance of redemption. Still a satisfying, if brief, read.

    9. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and finish this series. Really like how the story is developing - and while I'm never surprised (it is a kids' series after all), I like the writing style and pace. Enjoyable.

    10. This series is getting better and better. This book was about Quinn, very interesting. More connections and links are being made in the story and you can feel it building to the climax.
