#MGTakesOnThursday – The Huntress Trilogy

Mary over at Book Craic has started a really exciting new meme #MGTakesOnThursday.

To join in, all you need to do is:

  • Post a picture of the front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
  • Open the book to page 11 and share your favourite sentence.
  • Write three words to describe the book.
  • Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.

This week, I decided to go back to an older MG book as if not read anything new, so I chose a trilogy I love that was one of the first MG reviews I wrote.

The Huntress Trilogy: Sea, Sky and Storm by Sarah Driver, artwork by Joe McLaren (covers) and Janene Spencer (interior), published by Egmont

My favourite line from page 11 of book one, Sea:

“A clump of song knocks against my cheek, whale-skin cold. With it comes a low, sad groan from far across the water.”

Honestly, I struggled to choose a lime and just wanted to share the page, and reading the page made me want to reread the series again too!

In three words?

Thrilling. Fantastical. Adventure.

My review

My review of the trilogy can be found here.

  1. I’ve only read the first of these and really didn’t click with it 🙈 but I wouldn’t rule out trying the others at some point- I could never quite put my finger on why it didn’t work for me! And I’ve not taken part in this meme yet but I will at some point hopefully- it’s a fab idea

    1. No, I remember you weren’t a fan. I think if you didn’t like the first you probably wouldn’t like the others, though the pace does pick up a little. I prefer the first two books to the third as I find the third is still great but crams too much in. I look forward to seeing what you choose when you join in.x
