Others have said there are diminishing returns here as the publication dates increase I m reading them in internal chronological order so that I get a few of the later worse ones out of the way ahead of time knowing there are better earlier works yet to comeThis was
my least favourite thus far The author simply takes on too much too many characters too much world building her evocation least favourite thus far The author simply takes on too much too many characters too much world building her evocation a slightly alternate history England was
just the right touch but this book invites entire countries and the right touch but this book invites entire countries and and peoples and mythologies and religions etc etc it begins uickly to feel like an effort not a oy to readThat said I made it about 80% of the way on the strength of her other books but ultimately resented the book too much to do than skim to the end which introduced yet characters and facts about this place We get it you re inventive And despite reading 80% of it I could barely tell you the plot I think Dido was searching for Lord whatshisface but once she found him why they didn t leave I have no idea It was a confusing morass of character and incident and lots of trudging through landscapes Where was the editorThis one s eminently skippable even for completistsNote 5 stars amazing wonderful 4 very good book 3 decent read 2 disappointing 1 awful ust awful I m fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5 I m a bit ruthles. Published in the USA as Dangerous GamesThis eagerly awaited addition to Joan Aiken's award winning Wolves series takes us on Dido's most imaginative adventure yetDido Twite has been sailing the high seas chasing after Lord Herodsfoot who is scouring the globe for new and interesting games Now he's needed back.
S Another masterpiece The pace and characterisation are fantastic Joan Aiken is a talented writer and a good storyteller One of her best skills is in creating interesting characters and uniue adventures for them and the reader Dido Twite is one such character and she seems to encounter adventures in most of the books she is written into Aiken has a habit of entwining characters from completely different novels together into a master story network Though I don t like the way this adventure turns out I love the characters the locales and the fast paced adventures that Aiken has created I have to admit
This Has Got Tohas got to be of my least favorite books in series so far Don t get me wrong there were definitely some positives and I still enjoyed the ride Let me begin with what I liked the magic elements were super weird and cool I liked the mysticism and the way in which those who could use magic were able to even convince the skeptics in the story Talisman and the Forest People were by far my favorite characters in the story They were so different and I think Aiken did a fantastic ob in creating them and giving them the ropes the plot against the King was typical Aiken and I loved it because it s everything I expected and love about this seriesSo clearly there were some positives However there were some flaws that made this book drop below my expectations Dido lacked that charm I ve become so accusto.

Med to seeing In this novel she Was Uite Flat And Had uite flat and had real purpose this novel would have still moved fine without her presence Lord Herodsfoot and King were really blah characters I Alien Commanders Bride (Draconians, just didn t like their complete helplessness in every situation I understand that Aiken created them specifically to be this way but Iust don t like useless characters there were a lot of holes in the plot that didn t make sense and that s saying something since most of the books in this series are wacky and the introduction into this adventure was very awkward and stilted The transitions could definitely have been betterOverall the novel still maintained its wackiness and had an awesome fantasy element to it However it didn t tie things as well as it could have and Dido really didn t shine I m hoping that the next book in the series will be better for now this novel gets a 355 stars from meFor reviews visit wwwveereadingwordpresscom Another fabulous book in the Wolves series Dido is charged with finding Lord Herodsfoot on the distant island of Aratu among the spice plantations the witch doctors and forest people Lord Herodsfoot is searching for new and ancient games which he hopes will entertain King James back in England But the island is a troubled place with political and violence around turn The island king s malicious brother is planning a coup and violence around every turn The island king s malicious brother is planning a coup only Dido and her strange new friends can save the T Aratu she realizes that there is something even dangerous than poisonous snakes on the island She soon makes friends among the Forest People and learns of a plot to overthrow the island's king who lives deaf and sick at his palace on the Cliffs of Death Will Dido and her friends be able to reach him in time.
