What we thought:
Shunted from one orphanage to another, Kate, Michael and Emma simply seem to be problem children abandoned by careless parents. Then they land in the remote and creepy town of Cambridge Falls, and slowly begin to recognise their true destiny – and the power that they have to change the past – and the future of the world.
Easily readable by younger readers, The Emerald Atlas is sure to be popular among fantasy lovers of all ages. Yes, it is reminiscent of other fantasy novels such as A Series of Unfortunate Incidents, but there is enough that is unique to keep young readers intrigued.
The only problem is, it’s a trilogy, and the first book doesn’t have a conclusion ending. Oh well, just have to wait for the second instalment...
