Fire-Tongue is definitely an interesting read, but the language and culture are obviously from a different era. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it has quite a different flow from modern English, and the story is rampant with racism.

This is a fairly predictable mystery story with enough fun and exotic detail to make it entertaining. The language is probably difficult for young readers to comprehend in spots, but it's a fun story for a leisure read.
