I figli del re Inghilterra, 1940 Cecily, dodici anni, e suo fratello Jeremy, quattordici, sono stati mandati in campagna nella lussuosa dimora di famiglia per sfuggire all ormai imminente e temuto grande bombardamento di Londra Insieme a loro c May, una piccola sfollata che la famiglia ha accolto per il periodo della guerra Durante le loro scorribande, le due ragazzine scoprono le rovine di un castello su cui aleggia un antica leggenda una storia crudele e terribile, per nulla adatta alle orecchie di tre ragazzi, ma che proprio per questo loro vogliono conoscere Una storia dalle atmosfere shakesperiane che narra di un Duca assetato di potere vissuto diversi secoli prima e di due principi scomparsi Nella rievocazione di quel tempo lontano e nei drammatici giorni di guerra che i ragazzi stanno vivendo, passato e presente si fondono per dare vita a una storia avventurosa e piena di mistero, come sprofondate nel mistero sono le rovine di Snow Castle.

    Having recognized quickly who the Children of the King are, I was relieved to skim through the rest of this novel Cecily is an incredibly annoying heroine and May isn t much better The prose is stiff to the point where I assumed because of the Lindgren award mention that the author wrote in another language and that this is a bad translation It isn t.Kids don t read books because of awards unless their poor, misguided teachers force them to , they read books because they are readable and Having recognized quickly who the Children of the King are, I was relieved to skim through the rest of this novel Cecily is ...

    This is the third book I have read by Sonya Hartnett, and I really liked it I really like her books I have one big problem with them though I don t really think they are books for children They have themes and structures that are just too complex for children to fully grasp This book is especially misleading Its cover, description and characters are all about juveniles, but once I started reading it, I knew that were so many nuances in this book that a child would never truly appreciate th This is the third book I have read by Sonya Hartnett, and I really liked it I really like her books...

    Sonya Hartnett writes a book as an artist paints a painting The words go together like colour harmonies and sometimes, deliberate disharmonies She has a quite amazing ability to observe human behaviour and misbehaviour and to capture the kernel of it in an elegant way on the page, and yet she can gleefully throw reality to the wind if it doesn t suit her composition I found this particularly noticeable with her character Peregrine When he is giving longer speeches, it doesn t suit Hartnett t Sonya Hartnett writes a book as an artist paints a painting The words go together like colour harmonies and sometimes, deliberate disharmonies She has a quite amazing ability to observe human behaviour and misbehaviour and to capture the kernel of it in an elegant way on the page, and yet she can gleefully throw reality to the w...
