Descripción del producto

How could a modern day girl like Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? Even with her own vivid imagination, the place for other realms belonged in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thought, until she stumbled across a hidden curio shop and an even stranger shopkeeper. He gives her a gift that resembles an antique snow dome, but this is not an ordinary globe. The world Charlotte has always known disappears as she’s spirited away into a mystical land.

This is the beginning of a lifelong friendship that changes Charlotte’s life forever. Discovered by a young elf alone in the forest, she embarks on a journey in search of a group of travelling Entertainers. She encounters heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new found companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin. But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.

Biografía del autor

I live in the UK in the county of Hertfordshire, have done all my life. I’m married with three children and three grandchildren. I’ve known my wife since we went to infant school. We used to walk home together at about the age of eight and have been together as a couple for over twenty eight years. It’s the ultimate childhood romance story. My wife is, and always has been my best friend, and the one person in the world I trust the most. Aww, I hear you say, and I guess you’re right. Life is hard, and having a life-long friend to share it with does make it much easier. I’m a young granddad, which is great fun. I absolutely adore children. So much so, that I worked as a volunteer for about six years helping to run the Stevenage 17th Brownie pack. I’m still a member of the Girl Guiding Association, though not an active member at any more. Kids are cool. They can teach us adults so much if only we would take the time to listen to them. Working with children is what inspired me to start writing in the first place. Kids books obviously. I haven’t always been a writer. I spent most of my life working in the building trade as a carpenter. I actually wrote most of my first fantasy series, Truth Teller, whilst at work at the side of the road in a builder’s van. It was the only place I could get piece and quiet from my crazy household. And believe me, my house is a crazy place to live.

Overview:
When Charlotte walks into the shop tucked into the alley she is hoping to buy trinkets for her friends from her beach vacation. She doesn't expect the strange encounter she has with the shopkeeper, but she is thrilled with the ancient looking snow globe that he gives her. Best of all it didn't cost her anything. All she had to do was agree to tell the truth! Everything changes when she looks into the glowing orb and finds herself transported to a different realm. Danger lurks around each corner and all she knows is that she is far from home. Charlotte has to put her trust in Middleton, an elf who finds her and offers to take her where it is safer for her. There she learns that there is only one way home and it will involve a treacherous journey. Making matters worse, Charlotte has lost her glowing orb. What will happen if it falls into the wrong hands? Will she be able to get back to her world without the globe? Is there any way to outsmart the evil forces that are after her and her companions? Does Charlotte have the courage to do what is necessary? Read this fantastic fantasy book to find out what happens!

Truth Teller by Kurt Chambers is a delightful story. I liked Charlotte because she is strong and inquisitive, which are two character traits that help her in the realm that she finds herself in. There are times when she complains, but who wouldn't! I was curious from the moment she walked into the odd shop, and I wasn't so sure Charlotte should accept the gift from the shopkeeper. Knowing she had to tell the truth made me nervous because people tell lots of white lies, and I didn't know what would happen to her if she wasn't honest. Since this book was written in the UK there were a few terms that I wasn't familiar with, but I could easily figure out what they meant as I read. The friends she meets are so kind and the scary beings are perfectly evil, which was a balance that kept me guessing. I think that kids in fourth grade through eighth grade would really like this book- and of course, older kids and adults would also find it to be an interesting read. Fantasy lovers will like traveling to a new world! This was a fun-filled adventure that kept me entertained and turning the pages. Although the book came to a satisfying conclusion, the end makes me think that Charlotte may be taking another trip back to the strange realm. I hope so, because I would love to read another book about her. This book just came out in print this month! Look at the amazing cover!

I was provided a copy of this book for free from the author for my honest review.

This story had all the elements that appeal to children. I did my very best to read this as if I were a MG child. As such, the story flowed, and had enough action to keep my interest up. Descriptions were vivid, one of my favorite's was at Kindle Loc. 1180. "The light faded in an instant, and a cold wind howled through the treetops, groaning like the sound of lost souls." That sure sets the mood for that scene.

I would have liked a little more backstory on Goffer, but a MG reader would never miss backstories on characters with little effect on the storyline. More than two or three would really bore a child. It could slow the story down.

I have spent some time in the UK, so I know what almost all the little differences are in the languages. I would not if I were one of most MG readers in the US. That's not all bad. Reader's are likely to make the connection between "Caravan" and "Camper"/"Motor Home", but some may be confusing. They won't have any trouble figuring out "take-away", vs, "carry out" when it comes to fast food. There was one that I don't know. It was a song called "Ten Green Bottles." But I suspect it's much like our "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"

I would love to see this in print. I think children should, at least to start, have real books. That's only my opinion. I would wish for them to have that "Just one more chapter" experience, no mater what the format. This would be just such a book.

Truth Teller is a dark and mysterious tale about a young girl named Charlotte who comes upon a seemingly harmless snow dome in a little junk shop during her holidays. Little does she know, the old man named Goffer who gave her the dome at no charge, hides many secrets behind his old eyes. Charlotte is unwittingly transported to a dark forest in another realm. A realm with Elves and Druids and Beasts that roam the forest and Charlotte finds herself in grave danger. Thankfully a young Elf named Elderfield comes to her aid. Together with Elder's father Middleton, they embark on a quest to find the mysterious Goffer, to seek his help to return Charlotte to her own realm. Dangers lurk at every turn and Elder becomes a true friend and protector to Charlotte as the mystery of the Truth Teller is revealed.

This was a rich and intricate story with dark fantasy elements, some violence and very real and endearing characters. I enjoyed this first book which I believe has set the scene for the further adventures of Charlotte and Elder when she returns to the realm.

I would recommend this to older middle grade ages 10-13 due to its dark elements and vivid descriptions.

I was given a copy of this book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.

Formato:Versión Kindle
On a vacation to the beach, day-dreamer Charlotte enters a curio shop to pick up a few souvenirs to take back home to her friends. She meets the mysterious shop owner, an old man who offers her an antique snow globe for free. There's just one condition. Charlotte must always tell the truth. Since she doesn't think this will be problem, the girl readily agrees and dashes off with her new globe.

But when the globe takes on a ghostly green glow, little does Charlotte know she's about to end up in another realm in grave danger. Thrust into a dark world, she comes face-to-face with what looks like at first, a black "beast." Before she knows what's happening, a young man with pointy ears pops out of nowhere. Elderfield is his name and he befriends her so that no harm will come to her during her time in Chapel Forest. Elderfield takes her back to his family's home where she meets Middleton and Swallow.

Truth Teller is a delightful fantasy filled with druid assassins and other underworld magic. A tale for all ages not to be missed. Sit back and let Mr. Chambers take you on Charlotte's adventures. His story will keep you intrigued and turning page after page to find out what happens next.
