Book Review & Giveaway: The Storyteller’s Book by Kevin Fleming

The Storyteller’s Book
The Chronicles of Midway Book 1
by Kevin Fleming
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
“ … you must realise and accept, neither me, your mum, nor either of you are
Nick and Mel are 14 year old twins living normal lives with their parents.
When they discover an ancient book in their attic and read from it,
strange events begin to happen around them. Something has been
awakened which prompts their parents to take them away to a town
called Midway where they reveal to the twins that they are not human.
They had been hidden on Earth, brought up as though they were human,
awaiting the right moment for the truth to be told.
When their parents mysteriously disappear on their first night away, they
are forced to discover for themselves what their roles are in the new
lives they’ve been thrown into. They struggle alone as they try to
understand and balance their past human lives with their alien
destiny. When the book they discovered at their home is stolen, it
falls on the twins to recover it. The book has a lot more power than
they realised, and if they fail, it will not be they who suffer, but
the whole human race.
Along the way, they meet an array of characters, some will become friends,
some will become enemies, who can they trust? For now, they can trust
only each other.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The Storyteller’s Book is about Mel and Nick who are twins. They’ve led a normal life until one day when they’re 15 years old, they are taken out of school and their parents rush them out of the house and take them to Midway. They soon find out that they’re not human and that they have a destiny to fulfill, but no one will tell them what that destiny is. Of course, that’s frustrating for them and it was frustrating for me as well.

There are quite a few characters in this story and they are either good or bad, bright or dark. The twins aren’t typical 15-year-olds as they take everything in stride. They get a little overwhelmed at times but they never seem to be too upset about not being human. Since they’re not humans, though, I guess they wouldn’t act as typical 15-year-olds.

The Storyteller’s Book starts a little slow but it has more suspense and action as the story develops. I think it’s a story that young adults would enjoy as well as some adults.
