This is how The Twistrose Key arrived:  A beautifully crafted mystery that demanded to be unwrapped!  The Twistrose Key is a lovely fantasy story for 8 -12 year olds in the fine tradition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Northern Lights.  Set in glittering snowy landscapes, it plunges readers into the hidden parallel world of Petlings, and of Snow Trolls. This secret world is facing disaster and needs a heroine to act, fast.

Lin is unhappy; her family has moved home, away from her best friend and fellow troll-hunter Niklas, and her beloved pet vole, Rufus is dead.  When an unexpected parcel arrives, containing a key, Lin's sense of adventure propels her into the forbidden cellar where she is pulled into the secret world of Sylver, where the Petlings live, including her old pet Rufus! Lin soon discovers that she is a Twistrose - a child who can travel between worlds- and that she has an impossible and dangerous task ahead of her before she can return to the safety of home.

Read on to find out what the 9 year old made of The Twistrose Key:

9 year old twistrose review

The Twistrose Key has all the elements of a classic fantasy adventure; an unwitting but brave heroine, magical creatures and secret worlds which are impacted by what happens in the real world.  I particularly loved the maps, which enjoyably blur the line between magic and reality.   The sense of danger is satisfyingly realistic and the Hall of Mirrors is genuinely creepy.   Both the 9 year old and I raced through the book in a state of suspense,  and The Twistrose Key will appeal to younger and older fans of magical and adventure stories.

You can read more about the book and its Norwegian author, Tone Almhjell in our chat with her on the blog here, where she talks about her inspiration for the Petlings.
