The Questory of Root Karbunkulus - Quill based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Quill is the second book of The Questory of Root Karbunkulus and the most charming tale I have read in a while. Once again Kamilla Re has proved her mastery of storytelling between the pages of this book that is written as beautifully as the first one. This story moves flawlessly from beginning to the most extraordinary end. Root, the heroine from the first book, is so excited for the next leg of the quest she and her friends have started. In the House of Gub, she awaits the night’s revelations and a new great adventure with the other kids. But she doesn’t have to wait for night to find adventure in this house. The owner of the castle, Master Hillywur Gub had promised to renovate it to the height of its glory days, but with every triumph come twenty setbacks. What can you expect in a Kruxed castle if not sinks to sink and floors to fold? Yes all this can be exciting, but in the time Root has been here, despite Hillywur’s best efforts, it seems the castle is getting worse. Finally the gala night when the next treasure is to be revealed is here, and Root is dressed in the most attractive dress ever made. Her two companions both hardly noticed her but other boys can’t keep their eyes off her. Yes this is definitely a great step from her humble beginning as a garden thief. If only the Karbunkulus sisters could see her now. The quest, however, could prove a great test for her group and their friendship or perhaps not. For when their task is announced, they can’t understand it. A feather of an extinct mythological being is to be fetched, yet they already have it in their possession. Is this a trick to get them disqualified or a blessing from unseen powers? This is an easy and entertaining read for kids ten and older. I like the story and the beautiful way the author tells it.
