Ewan Pendle And The White Wraith, by Shaun Hume

Enter the world of Ewan Pendle, and discover his heritage along side him as he learns his life as an orphan getting passed from home to home is over. Ewan enters a world he never could have imagined, and gets a fresh start to life.

You see, Ewan was never what anyone would call as normal. Ewan, from an early age, could see things that nobody else could. This made Ewan a bit of an outsider, and made life hard for him. Ewan struggled to make friends, and couldnt “fit in” with any of the foster families he was placed with.

This all changes however when he gets collected to go to a special school, called Firedrake. Here Ewan learns that he is not abnormal, or alone, for the things he has been seeing. He is what is called a Lenitnes, and it is his life duty to fight these Creatures he has been seeing most of his life.

This book follows Ewans first year at Firedrake as he learns about his true world and life, makes friends, and causes a little bit of mischief along the way!

The story introduces and centers on several characters, who are different but all relate-able in their own ways.  The characters also evolve nicely as the plot proceeds.

My only constructive criticism on this book, and whether it was just the copy I was provided, there were a lot of spelling and grammatical mistakes, which was at times distracting from the story.  The author was also very descriptive, which is good as it really helps to build the story and construct the image in your mind. (However, constant repetition of the same descriptive terms were used).

All in all I rate the book 3.5 out of 5 stars, and I hope the the author brings out the next book soon – it is left open for a sequel and there is a story building quite nicely! This is available in eBook format on Amazon.com for $3, or hardback option is available aswell if you dont like eBooks.

Thanks again also to Shaun for sending me this book to review!
