They were still talking about what had happened the next day, and waiting to see what would come next. They end up great, but you have to push through the first chapter or two. In The Ruby Kingdom , you are drawn in right away. By using the third person, Bow is able to switch perspectives without confusing her readers.
Simon is a reserved, somewhat geeky kid, and he will clearly do anything for his grandmother, including accepting the challenge of making Amelia feel at home. Meanwhile, Amelia is disgruntled at being left by her parents, and wants to do anything exciting. She is the one taking the risks, and pulling him along with her as they begin their adventure. As a mother of young girls, any book that starts with the girl leading the boys into adventures is one that has my vote from the start! Most fantasy involves main characters who are orphaned boys, and while Simon is an orphaned boy, Amelia is the one who leads.
The difference between what Amelia is thinking and what Simon is thinking is profound, and the story is wonderfully told by looking into both of their heads.
The Passage to Mythrin 2-Book Bundle - The Ruby Kingdom The Prism Blade
The cousins and Ike learn that the blue flash is a type of gate that allows passage between a cave in Dunstone and the magical world of Mythrin. There is unrest in Mythrin, and the three teens need to figure out what is wrong, as well as what they need to do. Like normal teens, they quarrel about what they should do with what they have discovered — I especially enjoyed this because there are too many novels where the kids are instantly in accord with each other because of their new circumstances.
In real kids, stress can bring about a lot of bickering, and The Ruby Kingdom actually dares to show that side of the three young teens. Simon is hesitant, and slow to become involved. Amelia is brash, and leaps into things with both feet.

Even as they are taking different approaches to the mysteries that surround them, they are pulled together. The cousins were put together by circumstance at first, but then they feel a bond between them.
The Ruby Kingdom - Patricia Bow - Google Книги
Each of the characters in the book is really brought to life in The Ruby Kingdom - I can picture my older daughter exploring along with Simon, Ike, and Amelia. When they discover the first mysterious stranger, Mara, you can visualize her as she appears to them. The next stranger is unsettling, and Patricia Bow describes his eyes as he watches the teens in such a way that it is haunting. Fear of Dark Water.
