I read the first of the Hidden City of Chelldrah-ham series after meeting the author at the Children's Literary Classics award ceremony. I enjoyed it so much, I was eager to read this one. It was much different from the first in that it is set in the real world...the Cotswolds in England. While I had to struggle, at times, with the British version of the English language, I very much enjoyed the adventure as the protagonists try to figure out the human world in which they have found themselves a ...more

I have read two of “The Hidden City of Chelldrah–ham” series. I started with "Stig's Flight of Encounters", and skipping "War of Chaos", moved on to "Belas Rift." "Belas Rift" combines my love of history with a tale of fantasy. It takes place in England, where Stig and his friend, Meg, undertake a great adventure that turns into a one fantastic chase scene across the Cotswolds. Von Clinkerhoffen captures the surreal world and forces it into rural England with humor and history abounding. You’ll ...more

I loved reading the trilogy of these books but really liked this one in particular. Could not put it down and really want some more. Well worth getting

An adventure to be enjoyed by all ages. It is a fantasy that lets the reader experience our earthly realm through the eyes of innocent child-like otherworldly visitors trying to save their homeland from an evil human. All while they have many witty encounters and whimsical ways of trying to describe what they experience in this strange human world. You will be immersed in various English hamlets, mythical monsters and innumerable contraptions galore.

"Stephan von Clinkerhoffen's The Hidden City of Chelldrah-ham: Belas Rift is an enjoyable fantasy adventure that grapples with the tensions between technological advancement and respect for natural elements...Belas Rift is a richly imaginative and unique fantasy story of friendship and kindness winning out over greed and selfishness. This book exhibits a level of mechanical understanding and a respect for natural purity that is sure to ignite deeper conversation."—Foreword Clarion Reviews (4 sta ...more

So, these two youngsters Stig and Meg come through a rift thing, like a portal. They come from a fantasy land but arrive in England, like now!

They notice things we think are normal and find them weird, really lmao at times.

Fast paced, lots of action, keeps you guessing.

Total escapism. I live in the area this book's fantasy characters visit, so it's awesome to walk it with them. Makes it seem so real.
If you were on holiday in the Cotswolds of England this would absolutely come to life for you.
