A strange tunnel appears in the wall of Castle Hattan. Of course it must be investigated. What lies at the other end is a strangely backward land where things are not quite as they seem. Lord Mariusz adopts the pseudonym Hugo to explore the business opportunities he sees, only to be accused of murder; witness a vampire slaying; rub shoulders with ghouls, and have a close e ...more

Rebecca Douglass
The comment in the publisher's summary about "Chandler-esque" is spot on. This book is for older kids, more of a PG-13 sort of thing, though references to sex are pretty oblique and will go over the heads of younger kids. The level of violence is a bit higher than in the first three Princelings books, too. That warning out of the way, this is a very engaging story, told by a rather American Hugo, a.k.a. Mariusz of Hattan (Manhattan, anyone? Just guessing. . . .), who is trying to learn his way a ...more

Excellent backstory to the series.

This tale covers events prior to Books 1 and 3.
Filled with business dealings (good and disreputable), mysteries, murders, vampires, werewolves and time travelling conundrums to be puzzled out.
Hugo is the main character, but a very young Victor and his
father Argon, plus, Lupin, Baden, Robert and other familiar folks feature as well.
Notable non-appearances - George and Fred!

This book is an enjoyable read, with a lovable cast of characters and a creative plot.

[Full disclosure: I received a free ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.]

I think I was understandably a little skeptical when I first accepted this book as part of my submissions. A book about talking guinea pigs? It didn't sound like something aimed at tweens and teens as well as people of all ages, but I resolved to keep an open mind and give it a go. Of course by the end I was so glad that I went into it with an open mind.

The Traveler in Black and White is the fourth book i

My fourth book, and of course I think it's even better than the first three!

This book followed hard on the heels of the Trilogy as I realised that having made my dear Hugo (my third guinea pig, adopted with his friend Victor in 2008) the baddie in the first book, he couldn't be a character in any later ones. So he had to have his own story, and choosing to get him to tell it himself was a no-brainer, really, since he wouldn't let anyone else do it! He was a cheeky, bossy chap who owned the house

4.5 Stars. I enjoyed this intricately woven tale very much. Ms Pett has a way of developing the intrigue so well that I found myself reading fast just to get further in the story. I won't summarise the plot as I think that any details would become spoilers, but I love this kind of noir first person style. It reads smooth like chocolate. Where Princelings were middle grade novels, Traveler is definately more ya/adult due to its themes. So although it is also a prequel to The Princelings, I recomm ...more

Jemima Pett has been living in a world of her own for many years. Day-dreaming in class, writing stories since she was eight, drawing maps of fantasy islands with train systems and timetables at ten. Unfortunately no-one wanted a fantasy island designer then, so she tried a few careers, getting great experiences in business, environmental research and social work. She finally got back to building ...more
