"Lauren Owens first novel The Quick…"
I really liked The hardback book cover it is very original the cover illustration is by Jim Kay and the design is by Suzanne Dean. When you take the cover off there is an impressive owl that is engraved on the book which readers will see why there is owl on the book by reading The Quick. Inside the book at the front and at the back are lovely picture designs of owls. No need for a book marker as you have a red ribbon attached to the book to place where you leave off from reading. This book is well worth paying for and would make a lovely present for someone you know. I must point out though The Quick is impossible to resist stopping to even put the kettle on. Weaving in The Quick there is a fabulous twist of suspenseful horror which I can not say as I do not want to destroy the horrors that will take place for its readers. The Quick delivers pure excitement the children James and Charlotte live in Yorkshire in Aiskew hall a massive big house, with long corridors and breath-taking wide lawns. The garden edged by paths, big lovely old tree oaks. The Quick holds overwhelming scenes as James and Charlotte world is torn apart by tragedy first their mother dies and then sadly their father dies at home. Through out Jame's and Charlotte's lives living and growing up in Aiskew Hall all they have known is a house full of servants and a gardener. Now their father has died James is sent to school and Charlotte is live with her Aunt. Aiskew Hall their childhood home is to be shut. So much happens in The Quick. Very big twists and secrets are introduced where the story gets better and better. The Quick is going to be the next book everyone will be talking about. I highly recommend this rewarding novel The Quick by Lauren Owen.
