Another Eoin Colfer Winner
Another Eoin Colfer winner. This one will also appeal to adults versus most of his other works which aim more for young readers to teenagers.
The story is a type of "Count of Monte Cristo" tale but with some wonderful twists and innovations. The story of early flying makes it real magic.
The reader is awesome with just a little Irish accent to giving the reading flavor without making it difficult for your typical American, like me, to understand.
Fun read and think it would make a great movie...

adventure,charming atmosphere, worthy characters
The author of the Artemis Fowl series brings this story of an island kingdom from the last century alive with excitement. The requisite princess and hero start as babes and suffer through love, murder, greed, power hungry attacks,a prison like the Chateau D'If, and the imagination to want to fly. There are great characters who support the story throughout.
