Ewan Pendle was weird. Really weird. At least, that’s what everyone told him. Then again, being able to see monsters that no one else could wasn’t exactly normal.
Thinking he has been moved off to live with his eleventh foster family, Ewan is instead told he is a Lenitnes, one of an ancient race of peoples who can alone see the real Creatures that inhabit the earth. He is taken in by Enola, the mysterious sword carrying Grand Master of Firedrake Lyceum, a labyrinth of halls and rooms in the middle of London where other children, just like him, go to learn the ways of the Creatures.

‘ … Hume does a MAGNIFICENT job of building a completely different world … ‘ – Fire and Rain Books
This was described to me as the perfect way to fill that Harry Potter fix and when I started reading it I could definitely understand why. The author has a similar writing style and it probably helps it opens with an orphaned boy who isn’t wanted by his foster family and so he’s sent off to a special skill when he learns he has certain abilities.
I began reading it and was so hooked I found myself flipping pages during every spare minute I could find, even sitting in parking lots. Hume has a beautiful writing style that creates a whole new world which leaps off the pages. He hooks you with all of these interesting storylines and questions but he writes these mysterious points in such a way you find yourself intrigued and wanting to know more instead of being annoyed waiting for answers.
I fell in love with his characters wishing I could’ve adopted Ewan myself as I desperately wanted to give him a hug at times. The friendship between them and the adventures they experienced were fun to watch as they unfolded. I also love that he put so much effort into creating a diverse set of characters especially from the female perspective I liked that my girls could find plenty of fellow female characters to follow.
I hope there’s more to come because Hume has written some great characters tucked into a vivid world you’ll wish you could explore personally. There is still so much more he could do with his characters and the world he created it’d be nice to see what more he could flesh out. His ending was something else and made it a commendable conclusion to a great journey.
