EBOOK NEW Geheimen van het Wilde Woud
To that in this second installment romance a highly
Mysterious Master Of The Wild Master of the Wild missing knights secrets and betrayals and Forgotten Cities and yes wow It certainly has a King Arthurian feel The writing itself "Is Uniue Probably Due To Some To The Fact That "uniue probably due to some to the fact that was written in another language where the sentence structure is much different than English s but it only adds to the tale I m not one to write or underline things in my books but I was so tempted in parts when I d suddenly burst out laughing at a dry or humorous remark or read a scene that had me holding my breathTiuri the young hero from book one is now a knight and finding it not be as thrilling as he once thought specially as he compares his now peaceful life with the adventure he had the year before Travelling to meet as pre arranged with other knights at a friend s castle they become concerned when the friend in uestion never shows up and the last heard of him was that he was in the Wild Woods an overgrown and abandoned place supposedly haunted by Men in Green Finding him is not as straightforward as it seems and to uote the back cover As the darkness surrounds him and reports grow of plots and ruthless Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities enemies Tiuri finds himself alone and fighting for survival caught in a world where good andvil wear the same face and the wrong move could cost him verything Another great book of Tonke Dragt Have to read again soon After reading the first book I decided to read the second right after and I am not disappointed Finally Tiuri is officially a knight He is invited to come to knight Ristridin s castle in spring However when he arrives he is informed that knight Ristridin has not returned yet from the Wild Wood Concerns grow and Tiuri and his friends are determined to solve the mystery and find their lost friendWhen I opened the book I was pleasantly surprised to once again see a map This was a close up from the previous mapwhich can be also found at the nd It showed the Wild Wood and little around that area I really like that This way you can really follow the journey and the paths they take Like the Letter for the King this book also has a simple writing style I do however see the differences between this book and books that are recently writtenas this book is from 1963 The pace is uite fast and I liked the story I actually found thrill here than in the previous one but the story was also again a predictable But this is a children s book so I don t really mind I think children maybe have a different Wish You Were Here: An Essential Guide to Your Favorite Music Scenes—from Punk to Indie and Everything in Between experience regarding the book being predictable and a little dull sometimes In my review for the Letter for the King I said that I thought the characters were a little bland They definitely improved in this book I loved how the friendship between Tiuri and Piak progressed and developed The characters came across a little mature than the previous book I read a little bit about love some fight scenes andven death This book just was a little complex and less childlikealthough it obviously still is a children s book Which was a joy for me to read I think Tonke really did a great job describing and developing this world The Day Christ Was Born even further 35 An old fashioned fantasy that manages to be different from the usual I mxcited about this author because she s Dutch and I find translations interesting There s a whole world of kid s and YA books that I am not privy to because I only read English I mean what are the French fantasy classics What about Yugoslavia The Russians had a beautiful golden age of children s illustration it may not have 5 Nights: Sinful Delights Boxed Set ended who knows Not me Because I only read English So thanks to all the translators out there who make it possible for my ignorant self tonjoy writers like Tonke Dragt I wanted to love this book I really did As much as The Letter the previous instalment of Tiuri s adventures but I just didn t I found the pace slower the characterisation a little thinner although I did love the deepened friendship with Piak the structure The Seventh Witch episodic and the tension less convincing Saying all this it s far far from a bad book It draws the reader into the world of Dagonaut and its medieval style society with fantasylements that are subtler than dragons and wizards but nonetheless appealing The final chapters do up the game with a thrilling Hamlet And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake esue duel but the fact that I dipped in and out of this novel over a month rather than devouring it in days like The Letter probably speaks for itself.

Of my all time favourite Dutch children s books is De brief aan de koning by Tonke Dragt and I was thrilled when decades after the original release this much treasured classic finally received its much deserved English language debut with The Letter for the King in 2014 thanks to Pushkin Press in the UK and a beautiful translation by Laura Watkinson So you can imagine my xcitement when the seuel Secrets of the Wild Wood originally Geheimen van het Wilde Woud received an English release this year as well also translated by
Watkinson Dark and mature than its precedent this book continues to captureDark and mature than its precedent this book continues to capture magic and adventurous spirit I ve come to know and love from Tonke Dragt s imaginative worldThe first novel is a fairly straight forward story of suire Tuiri s mission to deliver an important letter to the King of Unauwen on the other side of the Great Mountains and the trials and tribulations that are waiting for him on his dangerous journey not in the least the Red Riders who have killed the previous messenger The Black Knight With the White Shield It s a fantastical adventure that thrills on very page and set in a fictional medieval land it s the perfect classic to dream away withIn its seuel we return to the world of Tiuri who is now a knight himself with his loyal friend Piak by his side as his suire Was the King of Eviellan and the rivalry between the two twin princes of Unauwen merely a whisper behind the pages of The Letter for the King in The Secrets of the Wild Wood unrest has been brewing for far longer and with one of the knights from the first book having gone missing in the ominous Wild Wood Tiuri and Piak set out on a mission to discover what trouble is laying ahead for the Kingdoms of Unauwen and DagonautUnlike Tuiri and Piak s first adventure
The People They Meet On This Perilouspeople they meet on this perilous aren t The Color of Our Sky easily categorised as good or bad guys and their world is no longer black or white Friends can become foes and villains temporary allies but amid the heat and confusion of a looming war the two friends haveach other to rely on as they discover the truth about the vil king of Eviellan and they combine forces with new characters to try to stop a full blown war from rupting between the KingdomsDespite my love for The Letter for the King for some peculiar reason I had never read its seuel before ven though it was released well before I was born so I have had plenty of time to pick it up and I am so glad that the English release finally made me read it because it s another fast paced and gripping classic that will stay with me for a long timeThe biggest difference between the two books is that with Tiuri becoming a knight the story has also grown up to become mature and complicated Rather than a straight forward children s tale of good versus vil there are many shades of grey along the way and this makes The Secrets of the Wild Wood a far intense and complicated novel Added to that there are the first signs of love blossoming between Tiuri and a princess he meets on his travels a plethora of intense fight scenes and a lot of horrific deaths accompanying the looming war all of which add to the feeling of maturity that cuts through the otherwise still heavily adventurous fantasy readThat isn t to say there weren t moments of sheer wonder running throughout both for Tiuri and the reader as a new part of Tiuri s Cabaret: A Roman Riddle exciting world is uncovered and an almost whimsical feeling of delight atxploring the corners of The Wild Wood but interspersed with deaths of much loved characters and a confusing cat and mouse game with The King of Eviellan this was a far darker novel to read than its precedent And one I took my time to finish as it was a hefty one tooWhat I loved most in The Letter for the King was Tiuri and Piak s growing friendship and despite having their own journeys in The Secrets of "the Wild Wood and their own missions to accomplish the incredible connection between the two best friends was always there "Wild Wood and their own missions to accomplish the incredible connection between the two best friends was always there when things got really tough for them just knowing that the other person was out there working towards a similar goal made a huge difference and let them see through the darkness surrounding the wicked plans of EviellanThe Secrets of the Wild Wood is another pic adventure that feels similar to fantastical tale The Lord of the Rings yet has its own distinctive voice and imaginative world building to create a truly uniue fantasy classic that I am thrilled.

Will now reach a whole new audience with its xcellent English translation Tiuri and Piak may not have pointy ars and hairy feet but they are such heroic and compelling fantasy characters that they could very well go down in literary history alongside Frodo and Bilbo 45 stars Since when is the seuel twice as good as the original book Maybe my tastes have changed but I did not All Roads Lead Home enjoy the writing style of the first book in this series The Letter for the King and the plot seemed so bland But Injoyed the uniue writing style of this book the plot kept my attention and the characters are believable I definitely want to read of Tonke Dragt s books if I can find any others that have been translated Or maybe I should use this as a good xcuse to learn
This was such a bookFirst things first this is such a beautiful book When I first opened it there was a map on the inside and when you took of the dust cover there was a beautiful imprint on the book just wow at the design on the whole bookI am a big fan of fantasy books and this one is at the top for me From the first page I was pulled into this fantasy world surrounded by all the wonderful charactersI really love the world building in this book I love how Tanke has built her own fantasy world The story and characters where very ngaging Also Laura Watkinson has done a wonderful job in translating this bookThe story is very intriguing filled with journeys sword fights and friendship We meet a lot characters we already know from the previous book and get to meet a handful of interesting characters as wellThis was a fantastic fantasy story that will have you gripped from the very first page It will transport you into the book and you feel like you are apart of this brilliant storyCannot recommend this story nough to veryone 455 Gooooood I did think the first book was better This book and its prior book The Letter for the King will be lovely for the right reader but they aren t my jam Both were originally written in Dutch in the 1960s and just now translated to English They are classic Arthurian stories of knights and uests centered around kind honorable Tiuri who is a suire in the first book and a young but already well liked knight in the second Tiuri mbodies all of the classic knightly ualities of chivalry honor bravery and humility ven better he is compassionate and kind Yet for young readers he s still relatable in his doubts and fears I find both books deadly dull because they are slow old fashioned and straightfoward There isn t nough story or character development for me to connect with The characters wander in and out of woods and castles and battlefields and ndlessly ride their horses from one destination to another This is a journey of a story and when all is said and done not all that much happens ven if the fate of whole kingdoms rests on Tiuri s shoulders There is one female character who I like Tirui s sweetheart and who gets to xhibit a little bit of agency but otherwise girls and women are relegated to Just Cause existing somewhere off page doing lady thingsYet I can t discount the appeal these books will have for the right young people they are cozy and uiet and decent and that s kind of nice right now whenverything is big and scary They are written and translated beautifully in simple unadorned language These books are old fashioned and traditional and would be a good ntry point into knightly fantasy for some young readers although no magic here and a feel good nostalgia bomb for some older and adult readers to curl up withAlso I LOVE the covers Three years ago now I picked up a copy of this book s seuel The Letter for the King which had only just recently been translated into English I loved it and shortly after bought its seuel only to have had it sit on my bookshelf all this time with my xcuse being thatDutch This Was Such A
