* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
First off I have to say that there is something about a narrator with an English accent that lends itself very well to the fantasy genre. It adds a sense of the different (and therefore exotic) to those of us in North America.
Peter and George have just completed public school. Next stop is high school, but first they are looking forward to a summer of freedom and adventure.
As with every other summer, Peter will be spending it visiting his grandfather, but this time he gets to bring his friend George with him.
The two boy’s arrive in Campbell’s Cove which is not your average village.
Viking longships, knights, immortal vikings, dragons, goblins, trolls, witches, ogres and more exist in secret deep within the caves.
“This little village hides many secrets and has many fine tales to tell.” – Grandad
This is an exciting fantasy/adventure tale that readers of all ages will enjoy. As far as I am aware, there are three books in this series so far and I will be adding all of them to my “To Read” shelf.
I rate both the story and the narration as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
