I have just recieved this book as a prize on a draw on this site and have read it in a couple of days. It has left me wanting to know what happens next! It is well written with some great one liners from the characters.

YA readers of all ages will enjoy Beatrice Beecham's Fete of Fate. It’s a winning mixture of suspense, mystery, teen life, Viking history and thrills.

With her world already unsettled, Beatrice happens upon a package containing a lost Vi

I got this book through the Goodreads First-Reads program.

This is a fun look at magic, mysticism and Viking artefacts!

The book flows really well and I read it in a day. I liked the storyline, and there was enough suspense to keep me interested. The characterisation of Beatrice is good, although I would have liked more characterisation of The Newshounds. Overall it was a fun read. One slight issue is that the book cannot be read singularly. In order to conclude the story, you have to read book 2.

Enjoyed the book but it is the first half and I now need the second book to complete the story. Many interesting points the whole issue of Vikings and the almost magical/fanatical/religious elements added a further dimension. The four teenage characters reminded me a little of the famous five but again the characterisation of Beatrice's family and school staff gave depth to the story

I got this book through the Goodreads First-Reads program.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. I found that this was quite slow in places and there wasn't the character development that I'd been hoping for after the first book.

That said, it was still a decent read, again there were plot twists throughout keeping it interesting (despite the slow parts). I didn't care much for the epilogue if I'm honest (I didn't think it added to the story), but it didn't really affect my enjoyment of t

Have just received this from the author and am looking forward to reading it. I was thrilled to find that it was signed and I scuttled about showing it to everyone. I'm having some new shelves put up tomorrow (yet more shelves, my house is insulated by books!) and book one and two will have pride of place.
