MURDER. SPIES. EXPLOSIONS. REVENGE.
Peregrine Harker is about to learn you're never too young to die.
London 1908: A secret society stalks the murky streets, a deadly assassin lurks in the shadows and a series of unexplained deaths are linked by a mystery symbol…
When boy-detective Peregrine Harker stumbles across a gruesome murder he sparks a chain of events that drag him on a rip-roaring journey through a world of spluttering gas lamps, thick fog, deadly secrets and dastardly villains.
Every step of Peregrine’s white-knuckle adventure brings him closer to the vile heart of a terrifying mystery – the true story behind the Brotherhood of the Black Death.
Peregrine Harker & The Black Death is a fasted pace book about a boy reporter who goes out on a story only to be caught up in an action packed adventure….
Let me start by saying this was a really fun book. If I was a middle grade boy this would have all the adventure I would dream about..Murder, Mystery, Spies and a lovely lady to save. But since I’m not a middle grade boy I will say this was a very fun, fast paced book that gave a lot of twists and surprises. It did lack something with only 150 pages I felt that it needed something more. The Story was very good just not enough of it. I can see Mr. Hollands writing more books about this character he was VERY likable and the other characters that revolve around him are well written as well. I’m hoping maybe since this was an “introduction”to the life of Mr. Harker maybe more of the story will be written in the next installment? Either way I would recommend this to younger people preferable boys or even maybe adult that are just looking for a fun short story without a lot of thinking involved 🙂 Enjoy!!!
