FreeFallen - This review is from: The Message: Discernment by P J McBride. A Tween/Teenage Sci-fi fantasy. (Kindle Edition)
Dragonriders of Pern fans will love this story! The storyline is very unputdownable, although the pacing occasionally slips - but nonetheless, the read is worth it. I can't wait to see the author develop the sequel - you can tell there is something bigger behind it all...

5.0 out of 5 stars a refreshing family read, 7 Jan 2012

This review is from: The Message: Discernment by P J McBride. A Tween/Teenage Sci-fi fantasy. (Kindle Edition)
How refreshing to find a teenage fantasy book without vampires and witches, or being steeped in magic.
I was happy, without any qualms, to allow my young teenage grand-daughter to read this, (and I really enjoyed it myself!). I also liked the added extras, the map, prophecy, etc., which gave more interest; my grand-daughter is really pleased that she knows what 'Gem' looks like- good artwork.
The characters were believable, I wanted to know what happened to them. I also want to know what happens next! Looking forward to the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Pigeons! 28 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The pigeons are back in this epic sequel to Discernment! This installment by far surpasses its prequel, and you'll find it impossible to put down!!!

I'd recommend this trilogy to teen fans of the Dragonriders of Pern series, and maybe William Nicholson fans too.

I'm so psyched for the final installment!
