Review: Newt’s Emerald

Newt's Emerald
Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Totes adorbs, as it can be said . . .

A young and silly story with a snarking undertone that will appeal to teenagers. Inspired by Regency novels, there’s an awful lot of focus on dresses. By page 25, I was impatient for the adventure to being. Them it does! A rousing romp of hidden identities and swashbuckling bravery. There was not as much magic as I expected. Romance plays a larger role. A warning to fans of other Nix novels – This one hardly seems to come from the same writer.

Teen fans of Princess Bride and Jacky Faber may like this.
