The Realms Thereunder

The Realms Thereunder by Ross Lawhead.

Summery:As kids Freya and Daniel got sucked into a strange underground world and after waking two sleeping knights waiting to be woken for(no kidding) the worlds end pretty much they start on a great adventure. To save the Underground city of Nidergeard. Now, eight years later Daniel is homeless on the London streets watching his back for otherworldly creatures which have been showing up lately. Freya is a student at Oxford...not sure of what she feels and if she can make it with her OCD-ish problem. Will they be able to help when evil starts to once again rise?

Romance: Spoiler: Freya is tricked into thinking she is older, a mom and married to who she thinks is her collage professor.

Language:British version of A--, bloody is used several times and H--l.

Violence: Some battle scenes, injuries, killing, arguing/yelling, monsters like trolls and dragons and like the dragon fighting some of the characters.

Other: Faeries/elves that sort of thing, some light smoking(once or twice) and Daniel's mom had a divorce with his dad and since had been sleeping with other guys.

Time Period:Modern and eight years ago(they tell the now and the before,which would be there adventure with Nidergeard as kids). And a Faerie world.

What I Thought:It was a slow a beginning and was a bit of a slow read because there was a lot of information and stuff. but by the time you were about half way through it really started to pick up!There was one part were it said one of the knights was going to go with Freya and he other wit Daniel..and then on the next page the knights were switched.I don't know if it was just a typo or what...

Rating & Age 4 stars. 14 up.


I got this book free from the publisher.
