The Secrets of Hexbridge Castle by Gabrielle Kent

Sophie, 16
The Secrets of Hexbridge 
Gabrielle Kent
Scholastic Press 2016

Wonderful book! Very original. Kent's work with both female, male, and mythical, is masterful. They really leap off the page! The way Alfie Bloom (The Protagonist) is written, along with his two best friends, Madeleine and Robin, keeps the powerful puns and engaging dialogue coming. with a delightful cast of up-and-coming thespians, an inventive extended family, and one hell of a butler, 'the Secrets of Hexbridge Castle' is a well crafted must read for all fantasy fans.

While this book is most definitely aimed at younger readers, it is enjoyable for all ages. I would recommend this book to fans of Katherine Rundell's book 'Rooftoppers'

Rating: 4 Better than most
