Book review - The Fetch by Chris Humphries
review by Becky

FETCH: The apparition, double, or wraith of a living person.

In the attic, in an old sea chest, secreted away, are a mysterious journal and a set of runes: 24 stones that will change Sky's life forever.

When Sky and his cousin Kristin find their Norwegian grandfather's runes, Sky feels like the wait is over, like he can now release the breath he wasn't even aware he'd been holding. But when he lays out the stones in a runecast they find in Sigurd's journal, he is catapulted into a world filled with more possibilities and more danger than he ever imagined.

This first entry in the Runestone Saga is an utterly unique blend of horror, supernatural possibility, and historical truth that will leave readers wrung out from tension and clamoring for more. ,

 

Available on Amazon.com: The Fetch (The Runestone Saga)

 

Becky's Review

This is a tale of magic, horror and bloodshed. Fetch is a fantasic piece of teenage fiction and is brilliant for girls and boys who like history, like a thrill and most importantly can handle a death or two, or maybe three hehehehe. The chapters and short, sweet and full of drama, action, tension and mystery so there is no way you can stop reading until you finish it really.

The plot was incredibly well thought out, the characters are not at all stereotypical, each unique and independent as teenage friends ending up on a adventure through time and around the planet. I loved the way Chris has portrayed one viking's experience of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, especially his depiction of Harald Hardrada happy to run with his men when pursued by Harold Godwineson and his army. The ending had a really big twist in it which had my fingers glued to the pages. It truly was a very big pleasure to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I believe anyone of any age would. It is a viking fantasy unlike any other I've read. I personally can't wait to get my hands on the sequel of this riveting trilogy.
