At a large family manor the three children discover a magic book, that provides clues to indicate the house is much more than it appears. The "heir" to the manor does not have living parents, who traditionally, would tell him the secrets of the manor and his responsibilities. It looks as if he must learn by himself.
I enjoyed the book (although I DEFINITELY am not in the targeted age bracket) and reduced my rating since the perils presented to the children was beyond anything they could realistically face.
As a fan of big world fantasy I have become accustomed to authors building environments within worlds that stretch the bounds of my minds eye... but strangely enough, this book gave me something I had not experienced for a long time, a platform to blend and create my own worlds. Jack Gregson & the Forgotten Portal has highlighted for me, once again, that the power of a short story lies in the strength of it's characters... and with that, the reader can build their own world, which in itself is an incredibly rewarding experience.
Here is to hoping that Peter opens up a few more of these portals for his readers to enjoy.
Jack along with his cousins, David and Rosie decide that they are going to use dynamite to bring down the door. They are intrigued that the door must be magical and lead to somewhere special because the dynamite didn't even leave a mark. When Rosie finds a magical book that details every room in the estate home, the young trio begin exploring and discover things they had never noticed before. The magical book leads them on a quest to other worlds in order to save Gregson Manor. Along the way, they will encounter dark secrets that if exposed could lead to the destruction of the not only Gregson Manor, but of the entire universe. This book is chronicles their journey as they leave Gregson Manor and travel a universe unknown to them. Will they be successful or will the dark forces prevent them from returning?
I started reading this ebook and just couldn't put it down! The suggested age range is 10 to 18, but I found myself wondering what would happen next so I just kept reading. I was transported with the characters to a new world as unfamiliar to me as it was to them. Peter Wilson's style of writing is easy to read, but descriptive enough so that the reader finds themselves in the scene with the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ebook and would definitely recommend it to any young reader (or old reader like myself) who enjoys reading scifi or suspense and mysteries.
I was fortunate to receive this book for free so that I could read it and give an honest and unbiased review.
