The Lost Diadem by Saoirse O'Mara Review

Title: The Lost Diadem
Series: A Rogue's Tale
Author: Saoirse O'Mara
Genre: Children's/Adventure
Pages: 51
Price: $2.99

Book Synopsis:

You never know when you might end up on the other side of the law....

Govin had no clue how much his life would change when he signed up for the City Guard in Davon. A fateful meeting throws him into an adventure he would never have imagined, not even in his wildest dreams, and he is left to fix the mess once known as his life. And if that weren’t enough, there is still a cunning thief to catch….

"Bardon put the quill down and scrutinised his work. The sketch showed a young girl with untidy hair, smart eyes and a cute little nose.
‘A pretty girl,’ he remarked. ‘Too bad she's a thief. She might've grown up to become a beauty, but I doubt she'll live long enough. The streets are rough, and the prison's even rougher.’
Govin felt a pang of guilt."


Expertly written, The Lost Diadem is an excellent adventure book for children ages 9-12. It's short enough that it makes a wonderful book to encourage children to start reading without feeling overwhelmed. The story is fast-paced and hard to put down, even for adults. I recommend this book to anyone that wants a good book for their children or just loves a good tale of adventure and mystery.
