Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Catherine Gilmore-Clough
Kerr's action-packed fifth entry in the Children of the Lamp series hurtles twins John and Philippa Gaunt into a typical assortment of adventures and tribulations - typical for teenagers whose Djinn ancestry confers on them the ability to grant wishes and perform other supernatural feats. This time, nothing less than the fate of the world rests in the hands of the twins and their familiar coterie of companions. An ancient Incan artifact, deep in the heart of the Amazonian jungle, might unleash a terrible power if the Gaunts, accompanied by their Uncle Nimrod and assorted Djinn and human companions, cannot manage to stop it. As their journey unfolds with misadventures and magical attacks, they realize they have enemies working against them - perhaps even amongst their own companions. This entry in Kerr's series is particularly strong. Although some of the previous adventures occasionally suffered from too much detail or too many plots, the story here stays on track as the heroes battle every obstacle in their paths. Kerr's characters remain mostly caricature, and readers looking for development will remain unsatisfied. In their fifth adventure, John and Philippa are more adept at using their Djinn abilities but are essentially the same youth that readers met and admired in the first book. Those looking for a rollicking adventure with plenty of laughs as well as danger, however, will be glad that these Djinn are once again out of their bottles. Reviewer: Catherine Gilmore-Clough
Children's Literature - Kathleen Foucart
The fifth book in the "Children of the Lamp" series follows the continued adventures of djinn twins John and Philippa Gaunt. Being djinn gives them a rather unusual life—like being asked to help save the world. Together with their Uncle Nimrod, his English bodyguard, and another djinn girl named Zadie, the twins are off to South America and the heart of the Amazon jungle to stop a destructive power from being unleashed. Yet their trip is fraught with giant insects, poison frogs, and headhunters slowing them down. That is, until they realize just who they are up against—an old friend and a new nemesis. What could have been an thrilling adventure story is slowed by a lot of unnecessary exposition and definitions. While the overall plot is interesting and has the potential to be exciting, too often the events come to a complete stop as the characters discuss what they would do next. While fans of the series might overlook this in order to spend more time with their favorite characters, those new to the series might want to start back at the beginning before tackling this title.

    UH-MAZING!!

    Wow! Wow! Wow!

    I just finished reading this book yesterday and it is AWESOME! Phillipa and John are back and they've got a more dangerous mission than ever before. They've got to stop Virgil Macreeby and their 'friend' Dybbuk from bringing on the world's end.

    I loved every moment of this. It's thrilling and I COULD NOT put it down. It may be a little juvenile, but hey. It still rocks. I love Dybbuk, he's such a fun character to read. I can't wait for the next book (Kerr said that he sighed up to do at least 7) because I really want to know what happens after this.

    After rereading all the books a few times, I got bored, so I wrote my own story for Children of the Lamp. It's on the webpage below.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/book/Children_of_the_Lamp/

    That's the link.

    Really, tho, I can't wait for more of this series!!

    Daughter of Demeter Chapter 2

    There was a fairy standing in front of me. <br>
    At least, she looked like a fairy, with pale skin a piercing blue eyes. <br>
    "W-who are you? What was that?" I ased, hastily getting up. <br>
    "I am a nymph," the girl responded. "You were being chased by a harpy." <br>
    "That's impossible!" I protested angrily. This was not funny. "Now, can you how me the way home?" The nymph gazed at me wearily. <br>
    "How else could you explain what you say is not a harpy?" She asked. "I opened ground because I heard your plea for help. You can not return home now." <br>
    "But-" I faltered. This couldn't be happening! "But my dad and my babysitter don't know where I am!" <br>
    "I will find a way t contact them," the nymph promised. She held out something to me. It was a sword. "You will need this. I'll Iris-message a satyr to come find you." <br>
    "Wait, what?" I asked. "A satyr? Isn't that a goat man of some sorts?" The nymph offered a faint smile. <br>
    "The harpy is gone," she told me. "Head up the North Coast until you meet a satyr. He will guide you the rest of the way. You will face several enemies, I imagine." The ground-cave opened above me. I looked up. <br>
    "Where am I going, exactly?" I asked. The nymph just smiled and disappeared. I stared at the spot where she had been. After a moment, I decided to follow her instructions. Her insane instructions. <br>
    I took off towards the North, suddenly realizing that running up the coast would be next to impossible. But I trudged on. I uldn't run for a while after this.

    Best Book Ever

    This book is thrilling. I would recomend it to anybody. However if you are a fourth-sixth grader then I would recomend having a dictonary handy.
    I did not have very many problems with the book but one of my friends did. Also make sure you start at at one and then read all the books to get here. Well I really liked it, and I hope you will also!
