THE MUCH AWAITED
BY LYNNE W BAILEY
Nothing exciting ever happens to Arthur, and that’s the way he likes it.
But, when he stumbles into a magical world on his 13th birthday, the new teen has to put on his big boy pants and begin the quest of a lifetime to find his way back home.
With the help of new friends, Arthur faces seemingly impossible obstacles, magical creatures and mythical monsters.
We've needed this to happen.
A little JK Rowling, a little Phillip Pullman and a lot of suspense and you have Avalon's Portal.
Lynne has created a book that in one chapter you are happily strolling through deep and expansive landscapes to a sentence later having your heart in your throat not wanting to stop reading but at the same time almost being too nervous to read on.
I've read the book myself as an adult and am now reading it to my daughter who is just as engrossed as I was. Its incredible to see the excitement every night before bed. Thats what I think any parent wants at story time, a fully engaged child who is eating up the story.
My only criticism would be that it ends on a cliffhanger and I'm impatient!
A beautiful and enthralling first novel from Ms. Bailey and I cannot wait for the sequel.
