This book was one of the best books I've ever read. I like how at the begining, the book instantly submerges you in the action, so there's never a dull moment. The book kept me on my toes, and I was tempted not to miss a single word. Koodo's to Iain Lawrence!

This book was also an interesting and fast pace book like Darkwing. I really enjoyed reading this book.

This book was kind of all over the place. I couldn't figure out what was ahppening sometimes. I think for Red Maple, we could've read the first book in the series; it would have gotten readers interested in the series and they would have understood the book more.

The character decriptions in this book could have been more clear for people who haven't read the first books in the seris

Everyone thought that this book was SOOOO boring, but I thought it was pretty cool. (Well, it WAS boring at SOME parts, not all, you know!) You guys should really read it!

This book was...interesting. It was kind of confusing because it is the third (?) in the series and not very much background information was supplied. However, it had a good storyline and it was really different, so I enjoyed it despite the confusingness.

This book is a sequel to The Cannibals by Iain Lawerence. It is about a young man named Tom Tin who has to go on a journey to London in search of a diamond. This diamond, however, has a curse. Mr. Goodfellow (who doesn't resemble his name what so ever) is also after the diamond. He imprisoned Tom's father and Tom will do anything to get revenge on Mr. Goodfellow. Mr.Goodfellow will do anything to get the diamond but when Mr. Goodfellow tricks Tom into giving him the diamond, he dicovers that the joke is really on him!
