Fireborn: Twelve and the Frozen Forest: The extraordinary first book in the thrilling new children’s fantasy series: Book 1
About this deal
Overall this was such an interesting read and I’m so glad I stuck with the book despite not liking Twelve’s angry character at first. Am Anfang konnte mich die Geschichte noch nicht so richtig packen, die Rettungsmission hat mich nicht wirklich interessiert und Zwölfs traurige Vergangenheit konnte mich auch nicht wirklich berühren. Monștri înfiorător ce-ți fură căldura corpului și te transformă în stană de gheață, ce te capturează într-un cocon de mătase ca să te devoreze încetul cu-ncetul sau ți se strecoară în vise, păcălindu-te să le devii fel principal la festin, o hoardă de spiriduși malefici, cu puteri magice, care iau cu asalt o cetate de necucerit, trădări peste trădări, patru copii fantastici care se împotrivesc expansiunii întunericului și un Câine de piatră ce poate distruge zeci de creaturi periculoase dintr-o singură încleștare a fălcilor. When the walls of the Hunting Lodge are breached and Seven is taken, Twelve embarks on a quest to rescue her.
I really liked this and loved learning about the different creatures, some of which I have never read of anything similar to before so it was all very imaginative and fun!Sie ist diszipliniert, trainiert hart, ist mutig, sturköpfig, distanziert anderen gegenüber und wütend. By turns exciting, funny and heart wrenchingly sad, it marks the introduction of an unstoppable new voice in children’s storytelling. Das coole war dabei das Zwölf ein Buch dabei hatte und jedes Mal, wenn es um Monster ging, hat sie dieses rausgenommen und eine kurze Erklärung zu jedem abgegeben. Any Middle Grade fantasy always has to contend with comparisons to Harry Potter and, although very different stories (and with very different protagonists), Fireborn does have that compulsive ‘one more page, one more chapter, one more book’ quality that held me in its grip and had me fully immersed in the adventures of Twelve and her friends – and in the world of Ember more widely.
This is a story of friendship and found families – and I loved how that was dealt with here, and honestly putting this particular group together as a family was ingenious and it takes work, but it is all the stronger for that.The Rules for Vampires don't tell you what to do when you make a ghostly enemy, or accidentally restart an ancient war. Was mir auch noch sehr gefallen hat war die Welt, in der sie leben, diese wurde in allen Einzelheiten dargestellt und ich hatte das Gefühl ich wäre direkt auf ihrer Reise dabei. While there, with only her squirrel for company, Twelve tries not to let memories of her past haunt her, but soon something happens and Twelve will have to go on a quest and face her past and fears.
If you’re looking for a new middle grade fantasy adventure story with found family, a main character you’ll root for and a new world to immerse yourself in, then pick up Fireborn today! Ja, es ist eine abenteuerliche Geschichte um ein paar Jugendliche und im Klappentext steht schon ausreichend, womit man rechnen darf.i laugh so much at these little interactions when it happens but also on top of that the characters are really complex with their own pasts and even their names that they are forbidden to share.
