Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

We reviewed the book, "Escape from Mercy Hall".

A thrilling new adventure by Garth Edwards with illustrations by Max Stasyuk.
 An ebook for boys and girls age 9-11.  The first of the Thorn Gate trilogy.

     They heard a loud crackling noise behind them.
     “Quick!” called out George. “The hedge is closing. We’d better get back.”
     Before they could move, the crackling noise grew louder and as they watched, the long slim poles rapidly bent in all directions. Branches twisted and thorns stretched out again. In just a few minutes the crackling stopped and the hedge was back to normal; huge, dense and totally impenetrable.

      The four orphans from Mercy Hall are stranded in a strange new land where Muttons (savage sheep), strange people and curious creatures live under the control of the cruel Robes.

      They travel through the mysterious Rainbow Cave where living creatures can be changed for better or for worse. Dangers abound around every corner and the children set out on a mission to free slaves and escape themselves?

     The land behind the hedge is full of weird and thrilling adventures.

Our comments:
Although Yuneidi, 9 years old, wasn't as enthused with this book, I started reading the book and it is pretty good. The book does move slow at first and may be why she lost interest. I would recommend this book for late elementary through maybe middle school children.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
