FLIGHT OF THE FIRE THIEF
Written by
TERRY DEARY


Terry Deary's second thrilling instalment in The Fire Thief trilogy, The Flight Of The Fire Thief sees our narrator as fearless young Nell. It's 1795 in Eden City and times are hard. The city is under siege from the Wild People, with little food making its way through the great wooden walls to the citizens inside. Meanwhile on Mount Olympus, Zeus and Hera are watching over the battle of Troy - where events are strangely starting to echo Nell's fate. Will the time-travelling Prometheus use his powers to help poor Nell and dare he risk betraying himself once again to the Avenger?

 


With a story guaranteed to enthral, Flight Of The Fire Thief is everything the first novel in the series is, and more. With battles between good and evil galore and an acerbic wit that will have children and adults chuckling aloud, the book sets the scene enticingly for the third and final instalment with all the guile of a Deighton and all the temerity of a Dahl.

Once again Terry Deary excels himself with this veritable paint-box of darkness and light, humour and adventure, intrigue and mystique. The pages fly like Prometheus himself and, with a plot that never becomes dull, children of all ages across the land and beyond are guaranteed to talking about this book in the way they now talk about Harry Potter.
