The power of five.

I have re-read these books over again but listening to them on audio is fascinating. I love the twist and turns the story plots that keep you engaged. Young and old enjoy them.

Delightfully creepy YA with razor sharp teeth

LOVED
💛 The discovery of hidden magical powers is a firm favourite of mine. Yes Harry Potter, I’m talking about you. Add in a good old conspiracy and I’m hooked.
💙 I loved the cat and mouse games between good and bad.
💚 The hint of absurdity and thread of dry humour throughout give it a playful dimension.
🧡 Paul Panting shows himself to be a versatile narrator and lands each comic moment with gusto. Also, he has a very friendly quality to his voice, making it a pleasant listen.
💜 Compliments to the audio production: Fun echo effects and occasional background music added to the atmosphere without overwhelming the listener.

COULD HAVE LOVED MORE
The start was a bit slow and it could probably have begun further into the plot.
〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
SHALL I COMPARE THEE TO…
Harry Potter with a sharp comic edge.

OTHER THOUGHTS
There are more in the series. Huzzah. 🥳️
