  1. Hi there,

    I came across your blog and thought you were exactly the sort of person that I would love to hear the opinion of.

    I am a new author and have just finished writing my first children’s adventure story which is going through its final editorial stages with my copyeditor and will be available in approximately two weeks.
    It is about an eleven year old boy, Jake Summers, who finds himself on an adventure in a long-forgotten magical world where together with his class-mate Arianna and a strange creature called Noggin, he has to race against time through five deadly challenges to fulfil an ancient magical prophecy and save the world.
    It is along the lines of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and like that story, I have attempted to weave good strong family values and the importance of forgiveness. It would appeal most to those who enjoy the likes of Fablehaven, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.

    It is the first in an intended series, although I’m not sure at this point, how many there will be.

    I would be extremely grateful if you would consider reading it for me, it is called Guardian of the Underworld and you can find it on Goodreads, the synopsis is below this message and it will be available in paperback, PDF and ebook format.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Kind regards

    Rachel Tetley


    Two worlds

    Neither can exist without the other

    And one guardian to ensure their survival

    But a family with a score to settle

    Forces one boy, into a dangerous adventure

    Jake Summers is an ordinary boy with an ordinary family- so he thinks. He has just spent another summer holidays building dens in the woods with his best friend Paul. But when someone special unexpectedly dies, Jake is determined to find out the truth, unaware that it will change his life forever.

    He discovers a key to Grandpa’s forbidden room, and is plunged into a long-forgotten magical world, together with class mate Arianna Brown and a strange creature called Noggin. Stormy seas, underground carts pulled by Golden Eagles and a dragon all stand in his way. He must race against time to fulfil an ancient magical prophecy and save the world.

    1. Hello Rachel and welcome to my blog!

      Thank you for considering me to review the first book of your upcoming series but sad to say that I am currently busy with my work and it requires me to focus most of my time for it and it would probably take me more than a month to find the best time to read your book among other books currently on hold in my reading shelf and my mobile reader.

      Good luck to your new series, keep in touch and I will be visiting your Goodreads link from time to time.
