Joshua N’Gon: Last Prince of Alkebulahn is a good read for those who love a bit more slow paced beginnings.
The Author, Anthony Hewitt takes some time attempting to set the character up, our main character is a teenager in north London, called Joshua.
Joshua’s life was pretty normal until he turned 10, though he didn’t have any friends, he loved his life, the life of a 10 year old boy living in a foster family who loved him enormously.
As a teenager, he obviously has some problems with his step-brother and school friends, but things became weird one day right after his birthday when two strangers attempt to kidnap him. This event, makes him trust his own feelings a bit more, as well as his own intuition, which magically became much stronger after his mum gave him a Masata on his birthday.
This bracelet gives him some interesting powers and works in magical ways.
Though Joshua believes to be a normal child with some little weirdness going around (which is normal for a kid his age) there are some other powers that know how special he is, and those powers will make him engage in some utterly fun adventures along his comrades.
It’s pretty entertaining to see the transformation of a kid, especially if the book is going to be read to a child the age of the main character, as every child wants to be special or a some of super hero, just to wake up one day and to find out you are a Prince. Joshua will be the one taking every reader on a nice trip to this magical and unbelievable world, light years far from us, and definitely this is a young adult novel that kids will definitely enjoy.
