In this action packed story, Dido goes on an adventure on a crewship to find the stolen lake and princess. I think the book was great and liked John Aikens suspence and mystery throughout the whole story. It made the story exciting and enjoyable. The characters throughout the story are always in danger and trying to stay alive. The setting is the key part of the story. It creates danger and is constantly seperating the characters in different ways. It keeps the interest of the reader. Without the setting the book would be dull. John Aiken makes a character that is not a main character but comes in and out of the story. He is very important to the adventure. I liked this book and would recommend this to anyone who likes medieval times and adventure mixed in a story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
