(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Troubador Publishing Ltd and NetGalley.)

This was an okay short fantasy story, which I’m guessing is aimed at the younger end of a young adult audience.

Sammy was an alright character, although he didn’t always do the right thing. He came across as maybe 12 years old? Not really sure what his actual age was. Sammy was a little hot-headed at times though, and I wasn’t always sure what he was going on about

This is a well written story which should appeal to fans of Alan Garner's books. The mystery builds gradually from the everyday reality of the main characters lives. The 1950s setting is well observed and the author is good at giving a sense of place particularly when describing the mountains. The dialogue is excellent and contributes greatly to the well rounded characters of the two boys.
Sammy is struggling with grief at his father's death and with the dawning of adolescence and all its confus
