Nathaniel Fludd

Nathaniel Fludd: Beastologist Book: 1: Flight of the Phoenix by R.L.Lafevers

When his parents are lost at sea, 10 year old Nate finds himself staying with a distant family cousin who turns out to be the last remaining beastologist. While he would never consider himself an adventurer, it is not long before Nate finds himself whisked off to Arabia to find the world’s last phoenix before it lays its egg.

This short little book contains a lot of adventure and intrigue. Nate is a likable hero whose insecure awkwardness as he discovers who he really is will remind readers of a young Harry Potter. There are fun adventures, mystical creatures, humour and suspense. It’s a great introduction to the series and definitely hooks readers. Those who enjoy Harry Potter or want a light read will enjoy this series.
