    I haven t read the previous books in this series, but this book was easy to read as a stand alone Very cute fantasy story about guinea pigs Who live in castles And do really cool things running on walls and ceilings, in some cases like little furry ninjas, seeing through walls, hearing sounds at a GREAT distance, telepathic thought, and so forth.As others have said, it is impossible to tell that the story is about guinea pigs It mentions hair once, or twice, but no other clues that would suggest they aren t humans Soooo, I just went ahead and read it while picturing teenagers as the characters Then I got so angsty to KNOW, I finally tracked the info down online, and found out guinea pigs Too cool I finished the book with a whole new cast of pictures in my head, and it was much fun as guinea pigs I felt it was well written, kept my interest, and the story moved along at a good pace Since I am a diehard nonfiction reader, this is HIGH praise from me If you like fa...

    This book is set in the world of The Princelings of the East, and intersects with just a few places and characters from the other books in the series, but stands alone very well The level of tension and danger is ratcheted up a bit from the other books in the series, leading the author to give it a PG 13 rating, with which I largely agree though it is NOTHING like as deadly and dangerous and scary as, say, the last several Harry Potter books, which are happily devoured by amazingly young children There is nothing in the way of what we euphemistically call adult situations in the book as far as I recall.I found the story riveting it cost me some sleep, as I forged on to find out what happened next Just exactly what and who Humphrey is, and who and what his enemies may be, unfolded gradually, with just enough clues to keep me jumping One thing I di...

    I love Humphrey Sensitive, thoughtful, with a special talent for listening, as well as a photographic memory, the wonderful central character in this, the third book which I have read in Jemima Pett s original and inspiring series, stole my heart A loner and an outsider, poor Humphrey finds himself swept up in a maelstrom of events beyond his control when he is caught up in a frightening attack by unknown baddies Joining forces with some new companions, something which doesn t come easily to a lone guinea pig accustomed to solitude, Humphrey sets off on an unexpected and not entirely welcome adventure He is soon led into a society of intrigue and violence, where the situation rapidly spirals out of control.All is not well in guinea pig world and trouble of the worst kind threatens all the castles and kingdoms terrorism, war, pirates and vampires what a terrifying combination How on earth will Humphrey cope Fortunately for our unlikely hero, his talents are recognised and put to good use in a Special Forces unit and, for the first time, he finds himself working as part of a team Danger and pitfalls galore await him, however, and his courage is really put to the test If you want to know whether Humphrey triumphs over adversity, you ll have to read the book f...

    This is my book, and the first I ve written since I started publishing the series I wrote the first draft for Camp NaNoWriMo last year, set it aside till the new year, then re worked it It is part of the Princelings series, but takes us off into other parts of the realms, where things are not so cozy and comfortable as they are in Princelings Fred and George s part of the world Here, displaced persons are roaming the country and being hunted for sport by the occupants of one of the castles There are hints of vampires and werewolves as well, but these play a minor part.There are strong themes of finding yourself, developing skills and making friendships Humphrey is a damaged soul he escaped from the Lost City in that book s Prologue just trying to make sense of the world He has very special skills wh...

    I think this book is my favourite of the series It is so far, anyhow I absolutely love Humphrey as a character The only way I could have enjoyed this book is if the author had used guinea pig terms instead of people terms for the characters paw instead of hand for example which is something I believe I mentioned when reviewing some of the earlier books...

    Another intricately woven story in the land of the Princelings This time we journey with Humphrey A gentle and trepid soul with a talent for listening to things above and beyond the realms of the everyday Humphrey gets swept up in the urgency of an escape In the chaos he makes new friends who take him on an adventure which he would only have deemed possible from the books that he has memorised Oh did I mention he also has a photographic memory.We are drawn into a tale of intrigue as Ms Pett slowly divulges little snippets of information about each of the new friends Humphrey plays along, unsure of how he fits into this new world of castles, kings and captains, but things are not always what they seem A group of terrorists attacks the castle that Humphrey and his friends are doing their best to blend in He realises he is not alone and his talent for listening comes into play when he is recruited into a special unit Humphrey is tested beyond anything he ha...

    Interesting style, reminiscent of early twentieth century storybooks MUCH better grammar and vocabulary than most YA authors Not a strong storyline, but the precision and clarity of thought made it a pleasure to read.
