Summary (Amazon):

The Princelings of the East is the first of a trilogy telling of the adventures of Fred and George.

When the King’s Birthday feast is ruined by an unnatural power drain, our Princeling heroes leave their scientific experiments to set out in search of answers. They encounter the enigmatic businessman Hugo, the impressive Prince of Buckmore, the wise Lady Nimrod, the irrepressible barkeeper Victor, but find themselves threatened by those with vested interests. The scene shifts from a rural, feudal setting to the towers and heights of the curious Isle of Hattan, but where, or when, are they? Time is of the essence in solving this puzzle, and our heroes must keep their wits sharp and their heads clear if they are to survive.

Suitable for good readers aged 10 and over, The Princelings of the East is a fantasy adventure with the charm of the Wind in the Willows in a world reminiscent of Anne MacCaffrey’s Pern.

The Buzz

“Jemima Pett has woven a suspenseful mystery featuring a cast of memorable characters headed by the two charismatic guinea pigs, Fred and George. Pett dives into the story right away introducing Fred and George and establishing the crux of the plot early in the book – namely, the mysterious Energy Drain. The plot line, with its many twists and turns, is very intricate and complex; thus, making it enjoyable for older tweens and even adults. Science fiction aficionados in particular will be interested in the element of time-travel in this book.” ~ Mother Daughter Book Reviews, 5 Stars

It was easy for me to settle into Pett’s writing style; it’s been a while since I’ve read anything by Anne McCaffrey or J.R.R. Tolkien, and Pett’s writing is a welcomed reminder of how that style of writing can really add to a good plot-line. I have to say that I was impressed with the novel overall. Although it is for older children, it’s still written in a way that will appeal to many adults.” ~ Megan, Amazon, 5 Stars

“After reading The Princelings of the East, I felt as if my IQ had gone up a few points with Ms. Pett’s vocabulary choices – what refreshing text. This true adventure book which includes a fight, time travel and mysterious strangers is reminiscent of Wind in the Willows – with a twist…I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to reading the next book in the Princelings series.” ~Christine M. Goodreads, 5 Stars.

 

About the Author: Jemima Pett

Jemima Pett Author I’ve been writing since I was about 8 years old. When my mum died in 2003, I found a small booklet in her box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled The Little Stream. I’ve been writing articles and reports for newsletters and magazines ever since, but I couldn’t find interesting characters and plot for a novel!

I worked in business for many years. I wrote manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing. Finally the characters jumped into my head with stories that needed to be told, and THE PRINCELINGS OF THE EAST was born.

I now live in Norfolk with my guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for my stories. And the picture is me with Fred. That’s Princeling Fred, of course!

Stitch Says Review:
The Princelings of the East
Stitch says loves that the characters are actually guinea pigs – that is very cool. As was The Princelings of the East. It does get a little confusing, like most time travel books. I think the slow pace of the story helps explain most of the situation. It’s an interesting and fun story, children will get hooked on solving the mystery of the energy drain. They will enjoy the character development, particularly Fred and George. It is definitely a book for people who like to think and read.
Stitch Says give The Princelings of the East 4 woofs!
