The Palace Library - Steven Loveridge

I think that maybe as a child I might have enjoyed this novel a lot more than I did now.


Three children find a magic door which leads to a magic library that transports them through time where only they can save the Kingdom.


The parallels with Narnia are clear, I believe. I just couldn't get into the story, unfortunately. I think it is aimed at a rather young audience, because everything in the story happens very easily. No matter how big the problem, it is solved in a few pages. and most of the time even in less. The prophecy was never more clear in guiding the protagonists through the story and every one seems willing to help out. This makes that it is not a very interesting read unfortunately for anyone over about the age of 8. I was quite disappointed with the story, not in the least because the library only plays a very minor role in the story.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
