Curse of the Dearmad is an absolutely stunning book, each chapter has gorgeous illustrations at the start which really helps to create the characters in your mind. I really looked forward to seeing what illustration would come next.
The story is a gripping fantasy that will really appeal to young and old, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I certainly am not young any more.
The characters just come to life and I really loved them all, they’re the sort of characters that you can really root for from the start and take to your heart. I loved following their adventure.
The world building is really spectacular in this story, sometimes I find world building can be a bit overwhelming but this is done just perfect and it really helps capture the imagination.
From beginning to end I was totally hooked, the story flows and I think this is a fantastic middle grade book. With suspense and adventure, Curse of the Dearmad is a story that you can really get invested in. It has short chapters which I love and although it’s over 350 pages long it was such a quick read. I found myself needing to know what would happen next, I just couldn’t put it down.
This is a book I know I’ll definitely be buying my nieces and nephews soon and one I’ll be keeping safe for my little one to read when she’s older. I highly recommend it, it’s fab.
