Δεν γνώριζα την ύπαρξη της "Λάουρα", όχι τουλάχιστον μέχρι την στιγμή όπου μου μίλησε γι' αυτήν η φίλη μου Ιφιγένεια. Ο ενθουσιασμός της ήταν τόσο μεγάλος και η παρότρυνσή της να διαβάσω την εν λόγω σειρά τόσο έντονη που είχα αποφασίσει πως θα το κάνω. Με τούτα και με εκείνα όμως, όλα και κάτι μεσολαβούσε και η βαρύτητά τους υπερτερούσε. Είδε κι απόειδε λοιπόν η φιλενάδα μου και για μια ακόμα φορά, αποφάσισε να μου χαρίσει ένα βιβλίο που ναι μεν είχα πει ότι θα διάβαζα, δεν είχα αξιωθεί να το κά ...more
"Laura and the Secrets of Aventerra"

Well, this book is AWESOME. I loved the way it was written , the word's combinations and the way the writer put the sentences. While I was reading this book , somehow I felt magical and I lived through every single chapter.I started this book three days ago and I was just amazed from every single story.

While I was reading it , I felt like the book was written from Rowling because it was such similar with Harry Potter series , but sometimes I felt like the wr

Laura and the Secret of Aventerra is a book my mother bought for me 8 years ago when I got sick with the flu. It was the first book I read that was narrated from two different points of view and I remember I had loved it a lot. Very modern, enough dose of reality and magic blended into one, excellent writing style and much better than all the book series being published now. It never really received much attention because the translated copies of it weren't produced in great numbers, but I think ...more

Eines Tages ging Saku durch das schöne Fantasyland. Da traf sie, unter einem Baum sitzend, eine kleine Gruppe von Menschen. In der Mitte saß ein Junge, der eine blonde Langhaarperücke auf dem Kopf trug, rechts daneben stand ein Mädchen, das sich eine große Brille aufgesetzt hatte, sich kleiner zu machen schien, als es eigentlich war, und sich recht plump als Junge verkleidet hatte, links daneben ein Junge, der ebenfalls eine Langhaarperücke trug, diesmal eine rote, sowie ein Kleid.

Ich habe die Reihe als Kind gelesen, und musste sie nun einfach re-readen. Grob konnte ich mich auch noch an die Handlung erinnern, aber nicht komplett. Und ich liebe sie einfach genauso sehr wie früher ^_^

I don't exactly remember how and when I first picked that book up, but I have an idea as to where I bought it from. And, I distinctly remember reading it while on a children's camp 6 or even more years ago.
Actually it was quite funny when I saw those pink pages, and was wondering what had happened to the ink, but soon realized what was going on.
Although, I can't really say much about the writer's writing skills, bec

The first thing I want to say that you have to read this book when you are 10, or younger because after that age that book is too boring and too childish. If you read it when you are that age, in opinion, you will love it, but otherwise you won't be able to get into book, because now your probably searching for different types of books. Back then i could read hundreds of pages in one bite, but now, i tried to end the second sequel and i was reading one line 3000 times.
So yes, child imagination

Este libro es una extraña mezcla entre Harry Potter, Las Crónicas de Narnia, Memorias de Idhún y la Historia sin Fin... ¿Suena bien? PUES NO. Tiene partes entretenidas, no lo niego, pero es un cliché del porte de un buque, y ojo que como he dicho varias veces, no me molestan los cliché de por sí, si un libro tiene uno que otro o si a pesar de los cliché es ágil y entretenido, no me molesta, pero es que este era un libro de fantasía prototipo, sin nada nuevo, solo repite la fórmula. Además ¡Laura ...more
I remember liking this when I was younger. But reading it as an adult I had my problems. The characters were extremely flat and in my opinion the writer is not really good at 13-year-old girls. And this is also clearly written for much younger readers than me (probably around 12, maybe younger) so all the twists and intrigues were very obvious to me.
Fun read but it didnt ewoke any fuzzy feelings in me yet. I liked it tho.

I found this book when I went to the store and told my parents I wanted them to buy me the longest book they had for kids because I ended them too quickly. Freund's was the longest, plus it was hardcover AND had part of it in color.
At the moment I really liked the fact that the parts of what happened in Aventerra were in pink to difference it of our world (then I got disappointed when I bought the second book and instead of black I found gray -stupid funding cuts-). Also, Laura's brother, Lucas

Okay,I might say that about all the book series I read, but this one really stayed with me. All that Laura wants is to find out what happened to her dad, but she never would have thought that it would get sooo complicated. Such a shame it's not available in English. I read it in Hungarian at first when i was 12, and then when i was 17. Forever loving all characters, and the medieval scenes are magical to me. Anyone who speaks German, or Hungarian, or any language that th

I first read it in 2011-2012? somewhere

So many feels ...this book , gosh ... so many memories , if it wasn't for that I wouldn't be so obsessed with books as I am today .. Thank you Laura for getting me into this am

Somewhere halfway through the book, I was already hooked to the series. Great job!

(There are so many books that were part of my childhood, but in the end I chose this one because I finally got my hands on the last 3 books of the series, so I'm re-reading everything :D)

Years later, my opinion on this book still hasn't changed. Sure, I now have more questions about it (i.e. Why exactly are Morgenstern and Elysion connected?) but it's still a

Ich bin über dieses Buch etwas zwiegespalten. Die Geschichte ist recht kreativ und auch nett geschrieben. Für Erwachsene ist es etwas zu durchsichtig, obwohl noch immer recht spannend. Für Kinder ist die ganze Geschichte etwas lang und das Buch etwas dick. Trotzdem würde ich es für eine weibliche jugendliche Leserin zwischen 12 und 15 als Geschenk überlegen.

Ich bin enttäuscht. Es störte mich, dass die Ereignisse ab und zu nicht logisch folgten (z.B. als der Steinritter runtergefallen ist und niemand dadurch aufgewacht ist; und warum haben die Dunkellehler den Kelch in Lauras Zimmer gesucht, obwohl sie wussten, dass sie ihn noch nicht gefunden hat) aber am meisten, dass die anderen Wächter Laura nicht halfen. Sie taten, als ob es sie nichts anging.

Ho amato molto l'intera saga, l'ho trovata molto originale e incredibilmente coinvolgente, al punto che rileggendo nuovamente la storia (sia a distanza di pochi mesi, sia a distanza di anni)è riuscita ugualmente a emozionarmi come se fosse la prima volta.

Absolutely fascinating series, an amazing journey. I highly recommend every children to read these series. You get more and more excited till you make it to the end. I remember i was a freshman in high school when i read this and i genuinely loved it.

I don't know why is the title in German, I think it's German, (I read books in Croatian, maybe some of them in English). Anyway I liked Laura series. I didn't like the ending in any of Freund's books I have read. 4/5
