Book Review/Giveaway: Jack Hunter Secret of the King. Ends March 28th
Jack Hunter Secret of the King by Martin King.
About the Book: A castle, chilling graveyards, secret passageways, historical clues and hidden treasure.Twelve year-old Jack Hunter’s life couldn’t get any worse. Forced to move home, ripped away from his friends and dragged to a town in the middle of nowhere. With the help of some new friends Jack discovers a centuries-old key that unlocks an historical secret. Twists, clues, red herrings and a host of potential suspects, can you unlock the Secret of the King?
My Review: Like any 12 years old, Jack Hunter did not want to leave his school and friends and move to a new place. During a visit to his grandfather house, his grandfather told him a story about a buried treasure he found and lost as a young boy. He made Jack promised never to tell anyone not even his parents and gave him a gold coin he had taken from the wooden box. While hanging out with his new friends Jack let slip to them about the treasure and the gold coin his grandfather gave him.
Suddenly he finds himself with Jules, Martin, Holly and BT on a hunt for the treasure as they tries to discover the secrets of the mystery gold coin. They had to race against time to find the treasure and solve the clues and puzzles as they where not the only ones looking for this treasure.
This book reminds me of The Famous Five, a British television series based on the children’s books of the same name by Enid Blyton. They always got caught up in adventures.The first few chapters I found to be slow pace but then it later picked giving us a story full of twists, clues, villains and the mystery of King Richard and theFour Corners. Overall, interesting read for young boys and girls.
