The Diamond of Drury Lane
The use of dialect is amazing in this book. Usually, dialect is either over or under used in novels such as these. This use of dialect works extremely well in the context of this tale. The setting, eighteenth-century London, is well recepted in the flow of the story. Slight romance and apprehension are crammed into this novel. An excellent read for all fantasy and fairy tales lovers.
This book was pretty good! It had a slightly lower reading level than
most YA books in my opinion. So in my opinion it would be more
appropriate as a middle grade book.
Besides that the characters
were well developed and the scenes were well constructed. Parts of it
were slightly boring but the exciting parts made up for it. Cat was a
very sweet and like able character.
This is the first book in a three book series.
