Hey guys! This week I had the pleasure of reading “Eagle of the Empire”, an awesome YA from author Martin Ferguson. This book is intricately plotted, full of twists and turns, and just the right amount of history. This novel follows Adam Hunter on his quest to find his brother. While searching, he discovers a secret organization that’s part of the British Museum, one that does the most dangerous treasure hunting and goes on top secret missions.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Adam is a charming main character, smart but not cocky, caring, and fiercely devoted to his brother. The author really brought him to life through his dialogue and his quirks, and by the end of the novel I really felt like I knew him.
If you enjoy adrenaline-filled, action-packed stories, this book is for you. The Hunter brothers will win your heart as you follow them on the adventure of a lifetime.
As all around me cheer, eager for blood, eager for glory, I realise I have escaped one life of war and bitter struggle for survival and entered another, where the cheers of crowd will decide life or coming death.
The sound of thousands of spectators gasping sounds like soughing reeds. This is the end of my story; this glorious moment. There is no way I can win, whatever I do. Death is the only victory on offer to me today.’
