Book Description

When you're twelve years old and want to travel the world as a reporter for International Schoolgirl magazine you'd better be able to prove you can find a good story at home first.

Budding reporter Daisy Cooper finds the perfect school when she wins a place at the brilliant but eccentric Darlington School for Girls. With maths classes that involve poker games, science lectures where pupils fire rockets and biology lessons that take place in a real zoo it is everything she could have wished for.
The school is also home to International Schoolgirl, a magazine that sends specially chosen pupils - International Schoolgirls - on adventures across the globe in search of groundbreaking stories. To travel the world as a reporter is something Daisy has always wanted and she dreams of being chosen.

Daisy begins an adventure closer to home, however, when she gets lost in the school maze one evening and stumbles across the mysterious Sisters of the Black Night - a hooded secret society that meets under the cover of darkness. Convinced The Sisters are up to no good Daisy enlists the help of her dorm mates - the 88ers - to get to the bottom of the mystery. It’s an adventure that takes her through ancient pirate diaries, shark infested tunnels, perilous sword fights and on motorcycle chases through the stormy English countryside. When Daisy finally discovers The Sisters’ dark secret she has to make the most difficult choice of her life: having the job she always dreamed of, or doing what’s right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Edit Please March 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed the story, and would have liked to give it a higher rating. However, there were too many instances where 'your' and 'it's' were misused. This is irritating as I read, jerking me out of the story; and it is not a good example for children reading the book - who learn by example what is right and wrong. Please, Mr. Dee, double-check your editing. The possessive its does not have an apostrophe. "The helicopter aimed it's guns..." is not correct. "The helicopter aimed its guns..." is.
'Your' was misused for 'you're' a few times, but not consistently, so I believe it was simply overlooked. A good editor should have caught these mistakes.
Aside from that, the story itself and the style of the writing were very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Adventure February 2, 2013
By Reader
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a really entertaining read. I love that the hero (heroine) is actually a young girl. And there's no pandering or talking down like some books do that are for younger readers. Great adventure, super fun. I will read the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daisy Cooper January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What a brilliant read. Daisy Cooper, the plucky young heroine, emminently likeable without being trite, immediately captivated this reader. The teenager inside this grown-up can't wait to see how the seeds of Daisy's adventures sown in book 1, will come to fruition in book 2. I'll be distributing the book amongst my friends children, and please Mr Dee, hurry up with the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, fun read March 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in one evening, missing several hours of sleep because of it. Loved the characters, loved the plot.

Grammatical errors disturb my reading easily (I'm not a native speaker and won't catch all mistakes), but I did not notice any errors unlike the other reviews.

I will definitely buy the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining May 27, 2013
Format:Paperback
Daisy, unhappy at her ordinary, run-of-the-mill junior school, and far from looking forward to the transition to the next stage of education, wins a place at an unconventional boarding school, Darlington School for Girls. Here all sorts of bizarre opportunities present themselves and education moves to a whole new level. Pupils are taught maths using poker games, rockets are fired in science and biology involves real live animals from the school's zoo.
Having managed to get lost in the school's maze, Daisy discovers a secret society known as the Sisters of the Black Night. All activities of the Sister's take place under cover of darkness, presumably hence the name, and Daisy becomes highly suspicious of their activities. But she must make a few decisions first before choosing her way forward. Should she follow her dream of becoming an International reporter with the school magazine or should she expose the dark secret of the Sisters of the Black Night.
Daisy Cooper and the Sisters of the Black Night is a wonderfully old fashioned girl's adventure story of the sort not often found at the moment. And, not a single vampire or werewolf in sight!
Robert Dee clearly has a great imagination, and has put it all down here moving flawlessly from one escapade to the next. With a tight, highly entertaining and engaging plot, one very likeable heroine and some solid female supporting characters, this story is well worth reading. And, you certainly won't be bored with it.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all who enjoy fun filled fantasy and adventure.

Format:Paperback
I hoped that this would be a cleverly plotted story: it far exceeded the promise of the book description, and was a book that I read in one sitting, staying up far later than I normally do because I could not put it down. As someone who is constantly looking to find strong female protagonists in the books I review for Children and YA, Daisy was a uniquely drawn and developed pre-teen who completely stole my heart in the first chapters and never let go.

Penned by UK author Robert Dee, he has managed to find the voice of a young girl, and recognize that adventures and danger are not just for boys. Here too along with core values to live by, Dee manages to incorporate the value of friends, giving free hand to introduce a group of girls that soon become fast friends, despite their myriad of differences.

The multiple elements all manage to weave into a smoothly plotted story that leads from one new discovery to the next until the final breath-taking moments. I don't know who else could have found use for a seriously depressive lion, stolen sharks in the sewer drains and swordfights, but Robert Dee found a way!

One item of note: this book is written for the UK market, the spelling / use is not changed for a US reader. While the spelling will be different, and there are some slang terms that will feel unfamiliar, any student in Grade 6 or 7 will be right at home in this story!

I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review as part of the Indie Authors Rock promotion at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
