(this review of Luke Meier’s “The Portal” is from amazon.co.uk)
This book was great. I really enjoyed every page of it. Action packed, quite dark and mysterious at times but still perfectly suited to the 8-14 age bracket.
I read this with a friend’s kid and ended up going over it a few time myself as, every time I got home with the book, I would continue greedily reading until the end.
As a result, I read this about 6 times and really appreciated the subtle stuff that only comes from the third or fourth run through.
