Beast Quest: Styx the Lurking Terror – Adam Blade ★★★★

Blurb: Battle Beasts and fight Evil with Tom and Elenna in the bestselling adventure series for boys and girls aged 7 and up!

Four brave young would-be heroes have been magicked away to the Netherworld by the Evil Wizard Malvel! Tom and Elenna are on a Quest to rescue the New Adventurers and defeat Malvel’s wicked plan. The next Beast they must tackle, Styx, lurks in a murky swamp … will our heroes find a way to defeat this monstrous reptile?

There are FOUR thrilling adventures to collect in The Netherworld series – don’t miss out! Ossiron the Fleshless Killer; Styx the Lurking Terror; Kaptiva the Shrieking Siren and Velakro the Lightning Bird.

My Review; This is book 2 in series 28 following on from the previous one I read and reviewed the other day. Tom and Elenna are rescuing apprentice number two of four who was taken in book one. In this chapter they face a huge alligator under the spell of evil Malvel. And both the main characters find themselves facing death in this story with Tom at one point in the alligators mouth. Very tense, edge of your seat read this time but they managed to survived and rescue the second apprentice. A magical, fantasy and adventurous read. Perfect for all young boy readers. A fab little series so far at just over 100 pages in each book. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. Black and white illustrations throughout.

Beast Quest: Ossiron: The Fleshless Killer ★★★★

Blurb; Free the Beasts. Live the Adventure.

Battle Beasts and fight Evil with Tom and Elenna in the bestselling adventure series for boys and girls aged 7 and up!

In the land of Tangala, a new Master or Mistress of the Beasts is to be appointed, and a band of brave young adventurers is ready to take part. But when four of the candidates are magicked away to another realm, it soon becomes clear that the Evil Wizard Malvel is responsible. Tom and Elenna must venture to the Netherworld and defeat Ossiron, a terrifying skeleton jackal, in order to rescue Nolan – one of the New Adventurers – and fight back against Malvel’s wicked plan.

My Review; This is series 28 book 1. But a good place to start I think. Read fine as a Standalone. An easy children’s read at just over 100 pages. Illustrated throughout. Fantasy/adventure/magic. The story focuses on two main characters Tom and Elenna who are on a quest to save four young adventures/warriors. This is just the story of saving one of those four so I guess we will be saving the other three in future books. It is full of magic, portals, fighting and teamwork. There is a great relationship and teamwork between Tom and Elenna against the evil wizard Malvel. Fab read. I devoured it in one sitting. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
