The Princelings of the East is the first of a trilogy telling of the adventures of Fred and George. They encounter the enigmatic businessman Hugo, the impressive Prince of Buckmore, the wise Lady Nimrod, the irrepressible barkeep Victor, but find themselves threatened by those with vested interests.
The scene shifts from a rural, feudal setting to the towers and heights of the curious Isle of Hattan, but where, or when, are they? Time is of the essence in solving this puzzle, and our heroes must keep their wits sharp and their heads clear if they are to survive. A classical tale that is reminiscent of Beatrix Potter and Wind in the Willows. This book introduces us to an interesting mix of quirky and lovable characters. The world that has been created by the author includes some great settings, each with its own castle full of interesting characters.
Castle Marsh is from where our main characters hail. Fred is a thinker, and George is an inventor. Both are a couple of Princelings who find themselves tasked with an important mission.
Chinese political transition: split in the Princeling camp?
A mysterious energy drain is making life in the castle and surrounds rather difficult. In a twist of events they stumble upon a secret passage within the castle that opens up a whole new world. What they find and where they go is an entertaining recipe for a great tale. And so the mystery deepens.

In many ways this book reminded me of Beatrix Potter and Wind in the Willows. Childhood memories of the illustrations, characters and style of those books helped me to visualize the Princelings as they shuffled through their adventure. As we all know, time-travel is rather complicated to fully comprehend. The author does a sterling job in explaining her spin on the implications of time-travel on the plot and the characters.

My bottom line : The Princelings of the East reminds me of those classical tales from Beatrix Potter. I think that the characters are charming and engaging and the underlying plot is original. My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell. I try to focus on the story which is the reason I read rather than dissect the book and pass comment on typos, writing style or structure.
A free copy of this book was provided to me by the author for a fair and honest review. When my mum died in , I found a small booklet in her box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled The Little Stream. I worked in business for many years. I wrote manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing.
I now live in Norfolk with my guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for my stories. And the picture is me with Fred.

We grow vegetables as well. They rely on selling things they make. SS: I thought you just solved the Energy Drain and built power plants and flying machines? SS : How did you come to learn enough about engineering to build power plants and flying machines? It was hard getting it to work, though. I suppose I got sort of obsessed with flying. SS : Do you think it could cause trouble, in the long run? Presumably not everyone can fly? Why would everyone want to fly places?
Most people live near their families. SS: That is certainly true. Thank you very much for the interview. I wish you well in your endeavors.
