I received this book via Iain Reading for an honest review!
This book is the third book in Kitty Hawk’s adventure and they just keep getting better and better! I flew through this one as I pretty much finished it in a day, I throughly enjoyed it.
We follow the main character Kitty as she goes on her journey across the world following the footsteps of her hero Amelia Earhart, in this book we stop off in Iceland where Kitty stays with one of Charlie’s friends (who we know from the first book) and she learns about the environment and how elves, trolls, hidden people are a part of their culture.
I am definitely loving this series, following Kitty on her journey is incredibly exciting, this book is something that any one at any age could enjoy, its amazing and you can immerse yourself into the world and learn more about the country.
At the end of each book Iain has included some further reading about some events, buildings, places that were mentioned in the book, in this book it includes the Eyjafjallajokull Volcanic Eruption that happened in 2010, quite a few things that are mentioned throughout the books are actually real and it’s amazing to read about them.
I have to say I’m looking forwards to reading the forth book when Kitty goes to Dublin and London, it sounds absolutely fab and I can’t wait to read it!
