As usual, the message variety is as usual South American (if you have publication any Garcia Marquez you will cognise what I imply) near flower and elaborate phrases and melodious descriptions. The descriptions of the location of the Himalayas, where supreme of the fiction is set, were graceful and made me want to meeting that speciality.

The fresh features iii key characters, Alex Cold, his individual Nadia and his grandma Kate. The bad guys are the Collector, who is ultra-rich and can buy near thing he wants, and the Specialist, a category of all-purpose hit man and procurer, hired by the Collector to get the Golden Dragon, a fabulous sculpture which is held to bode the emerging. The Collector hopes to change state even better off by using this to fashion a bloodbath on the horses market. Kate is too interested in the Golden Dragon, tho' not for the aforementioned reasons. She's a author and it would manufacture a dandy message. The account centres on all sides the Specialist's hard work to get grip of the Dragon and the pains of Kate, Alex, Nadia and others to hold back the theft and after to regain it. There are a couple of apt twists, which I won't unveil as that mightiness pander to the history.
What I consideration
I was befuddled by the great quantity of references to what these characters had through with in a most recent jaunt in the Amazon, but it made more ability sometime I'd complete this was component two of a triplet. If you read this book, you will discovery you cognize nigh as untold about the early experience as the widespread one.
Although I liked the key characters, I recovered it genuinely hard to assume in them, next to both the family superficial far too politic for their ages (Alex is about 16 and Nadia 13) and prostrate to go vehement off to do undoable property. Their partiality to spin around into their totems (Alex's a jaguar and Nadia's an eagle) is likewise odd. The prevalent villains as well come across to be caricatures, next to vindicatory a few conspicuous characteristics to alter us to choice them out.
That man said, I enjoyed the content in spite of the passion of unreality that pervades it. I unconcealed after I'd spent reading the fresh that it's expected to be a children's story (it was a linguistic process assortment selection, therefore my content), and that in all likelihood accounts for the charming and counterfeit atmospheric condition. At the age of 12, I would have thoroughly enjoyed it; as an adult, a number of atmospheric condition are a bit too fantastic for my appetite.
Summary: A great children's story; adults may brainstorm it harder to read
