I really enjoyed this book because there was always moments when there was at least 1 problem to be solved. There was a lot of suspense in this book and lots of emotion. Rhys George Romney

I really enjoyed this book ,it was full of fascinating creatures. I knew from the moment I read about Eudora Vane I had a feeling she was up to no good. My favourite characters were the ‘thought-wolves’ because everyone was so scared of them because of Eudora, when really they were really calm, clever and cool creatures.[even if they are made up.] My other character I thought was really inspiring was Arthur, because he may of only had one arm but he wouldn’t let any challenge out face him. The plot and the book itself is great.Vashti Hardy Hardy should… Read more »

This book was really thrilling and exhilarating, an awesome sky-ship adventure! I would say the this is one of my favourite books so far. I loved Brightstorm because it was an adventure that showed resilience, bravery, effort and desire. Arthur was so determined to find the truth that he went any limit to succeed. Eudora is a despicable, villainous women, though saying that there were lots of characters who showed girl power. I think that Maudie was a strong character with dreams that she would conquer when she grew up. Also she had the skill of kindness that she showed… Read more »
