    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubEvery night around nine o'clock in Cold Shoulder road the screaming began It came from the end house in the row It was not very loud The sound was like the cries of the gulls that flew and whirled along the shingle bank on the seaward side of the roadJoan Aiken really knows how to write stuff that while wholly appealing to young people is also genuinely chilling When I was a kid my local library had 'The Wolves of Willoughby Chase' and its first two sequels I was young enough when I read them that I wasn't quite certain which elements in this alternate history England were fantasy and which were just British it all seemed quite exotic to me I read those three books several times each but didn't later follow the series and and no idea until picking this up that it had continued into the mid 90sThe setting was familiar but the characters here are ones I wasn't familiar with although it's clearly not the first time they've been introduced Is Twite and her cousin A

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubIn this ninth entry in Aiken's Wolves Chronicles and the second featuring Is Twite as a heroine Is and her cousin Arun go in search of Arun's mother in Folkstone Here they must contend with a band of ruthless smugglers known as The Merry Gentlemen and a strange religious cult called the Silent Sect Aiken delivers her usual assortment of odd characters and unexpected plot developments including unknown Twite relations a long lost royal treasure and a frigate stuck at the top of a treeI was surprised to discover while reading Cold Shoulder Road that I was becoming somewhat impatient with Aiken's series As I mentioned in my review of Is Underground the two titles featuring Is Twite do not rank among my favorites in the Wolves Chronicles mostly because I consider Is Twite to be a shallow and unsatisfactory copy of her older sister Dido But this title in particular struck me as being the low point in Aiken's extended narrative a

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubThis is pretty late in the series which was written over several decades It seems that Aiken sort of lost track of what made these books work as she got further from the source Among the problems Yet another deus ex machina type ending In previous stories the hero actually played a role in the downfall of the villains Over reliance on the supernatural Okay a little magic or whatever in a young adult novel seems right This story hinges yet again on people communicating with each other in thought Then there is the key villain suddenly dying beca

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubThe first line on a sort of prologue page although it is not labeled as such is a sort of back story although you don't understand it until midway through the bookEvery night around nine o' clock in Cold Shoulder Road the screaming began Gothic tongue in cheek adventure involving a Chunnel created before its time smuggled ivory tusks a necklace of death and Aiken's usual really horrible villains flavored just right with the Gorey cover illustration I've long enjoyed Aiken's creation of a sort of patois displayed the characters' use of words like clung headed mumchancecroopus clod pole fambles She respects her readers and knows they will get the meaning from context unlike some wrong headed editors of today who think readers need to have the vibrancy of words toned down into the dull and familiar

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubSequel to Is Underground In the previous book in the series Is Twite travelled north to find her missing cousin Arun Now Arun has been found and they are going back to his home town to reunite him with his mother But when they get there they discover that Aunt Ruth has disappeared Arun's family was part of the Silent Sect a strange group of true believers who believe that silence is holy and noise is sinful But things have changed in the sect since Arun left there is a new charismatic leader named Dominic de la Twite and it seems that he may be Up To No Good There is also a band of smugglers operating in the area the Merry Gentry who are a bunch of very dangerous ne'er do wells Can Is and Arun get to the bottom of things and find his Aunt Ruth? As always this was a delight I think Joan Aiken is one of the most consistently clever and inventive authors one could read

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubThe sequel to 'Is' US 'Is Underground' is another of Joan Aiken's unputdownable novels in the James III Wolves sequence The villains are as villainish as ever with few redeeming features the young and not so young protagonists are regularly scrobbled and much of the fairytale action which would normally be regarded as implausible acquires a degree of reality through Aiken's powerful storytellingRich in details the novel dovetails chronologically into the rest of the series but can be enjoyed just about as a standalone Most of the action takes place in Kent along the coast from Aiken's beloved Sussex but in Aiken's usual timeframe where the 1830s or the early 1840s are not quite as the history we are familiar with

    Cold Shoulder Road MOBI Ú Cold Shoulder Epub / cold ebok, shoulder mobile, road book, Cold Shoulder book, Cold Shoulder Road EpubYeah and no This is just too slow and not making any sense I gave it to about the halfway point before calling it Perhaps if I had read the past books it would be better The description seemed right up my alley but the writing was just to stilted and dry for my taste It has gotten great reviews from people who have read the series but as someone who was not familiar with the series the book just didn't go any where and when it did it did so in a way that just didn't make much sense to me Full disclosure I received a copy of this book from netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
