      I think I hate John Barrowman. Not only is the man a good actor, a good singer, charismatic and attractive and got paid to kiss Billy Piper and Christopher Ecclestone, he's now co-authored really good books with his sister. Books that show a fine appreciation of art, just to add to the general level of culture and talent being exuded here.Sigh.Bone Quill picks up where Hollow Earth left off, and it's another great, fast paced fantasy adventure which - sickeningly - I really enjoyed.I love the ch [...]

    • This is a sequel that's better than the first book. It ends on the cliffhanger of all cliffies, so I'm awaiting the third book. I feel that the Barrowmans have done something really clever in the way they've built up this story. There's a lovely device of introducing characters from the past and then bringing in the device of time travel so that the stories all come together. I know there's the thing of celebrities writing books that winds some people up, and mostly I agree, yes there are no dou [...]

      Great sequel--every bit as action-packed and suspenseful as Hollow Earth!! L-O-V-E!!!

    • More please :)

    • This is the second in the Hollow Earth series. I enjoyed the first one enough that I wanted to keep reading the rest of the series. This second one still wants me reading the third, so that is a good thing!Twins Matt and Em are back again, drawing pictures that come to life. But this time Matt goes off on his own creating conflict that was absent in the first book. The writing is similar, an easy read where you can get into the story and not be bogged down by either too good or too bad writing. [...]

    • So this book gets 3 stars instead of 4 because it had a typical series cliff hanger ending with no closure. I guess I didn't mind the cliff hanger in the first book because there was closure -- here there obviously needs to be another story. It also took me longer to get into but I think that is because I read it immediately after finishing the first book. Once I did get into the story I enjoyed it and was shocked and surprised by some of the plot elements. Enjoyable but I'm tired of series book [...]

    • awesome!! there are no words to describe the unique ingenious of this story and world!!!

    • I confess that I only bought the first book in this series to fuel my John Barrowman obsession and didn’t really have very high expectations of it. Then I read it and loved every second and desperately wanted book two already.Luckily for me, Liberty recieved Bone Quill for review (having borrowed my copy of Hollow Earth and loving it, too) so I didn’t have to wait long before I could borrow it.I raced through Bone Quill because it was fast-paced and gripping, the story carying on from where [...]

    • Après avoir appris qu'ils étaient les héritiers de dons hors du commun, en tant que Animare et Gardien, les jumeaux Calder, Matt et Emily, ont trouvé refuge chez leur grand-père Renard, dans son manoir sur l'île d'Auchinmurn (au large de l'Écosse). Leur mère a disparu et leur père a été enfermé dans un tableau. Le danger n'a jamais été aussi proche, mais Matt et Emily n'ont que douze ans et sont donc naturellement prompts à désobéir et minimiser les conséquences de leurs actes. [...]

      Em and Matt Calder are back to save the world. You thought after defeating Tanan and the Hollow Earth Society once that it would be all good, case closed? Ha! You thought wrong! After the incident that ripped through the family, Matt and Em are stuck in a world without animating, which at the moment, meant no drawing, making art, or coloring of any kind until they could get their powers under control. But do you think that will stop them? Of course not, because in a book, do main characters usua [...]

    • I totally loved this book, it's a great read for everyone regardless of age. It was captivating from the very start and I was glued to it until the very end. I read it in one sitting. It's fast paced and exciting with lots of suspense, mystery and gripping adventure, great characters and many unexpected turns. I was most intrigued by the sinister forces and mixture of myth, fable and fantastical vision. As in the first instalment fiction is linked in a great way with real places and artwork whic [...]

    • Not quite as good as the first installment, but still great, entertaining, and fun. Confusing from time to time, all those switching back and forth in time made my brains tingle ^^ It wasn't always gripping, some parts dragged a little bit. The thrilling ending made up for the slow parts, though.Loved the setting and the imaginative world, loved the protagonists (esp. Solon and Zach ❤️), loved how the plot developed. The evil cliffhanger, however, I didn't like that much which is why I'm off [...]

    • This series is so imaginative. I really enjoyed the first book 'Hollow Earth' and 'Bone Quill'was even better. Matt & Em's journey is full of twists & turns and some darker adventures than I would expect. The way the plot skewed at the end was a surprise that wasn't totally unexpected but definitely welcomed. Life is complicated, even more so when you have magical abilities. The cliffhanger has me desperate for the rest of the series!

    • it was a fantastic read. just like the first one (hollow earth) it was full of excitement and adventure. at one point i knew what was going to happen but the suspense to get there was well worth it. but the ending had me in tears. i only hope there is a third part and as soon as its out i'm getting it. the characters where so realistic and honest. i felt their feelings and saw what they did. loved it.

    • Degno seguito che mantiene intatto il ritmo concitato, la curiosità, il fascino dell'ambientazione, l'originalità dell'intreccio. Non solo si presenta all'altezza del primo libro, evitando l'effetto "sequel", ma amplia anche l'ambientazione e la storia, introducendo nuovi elementi, come il viaggio nel tempo. Per finire con un altro cliffhanger.

    • Absolutely a fantastic adventure. Loved every word. And the time travel added a great touch the the kids Animare abilities. Can't want for the last installment to the trilogy.

    • Wow! It kept me wanting to read more and more! I couldn't put it down! I can't wait for the next book to come out! A wonderful series! Absolutely fantastic!

    • the second rethrough was better than the first. i missed a few things that made more sense now that i have read it again. still could not put book down at the end.

    • Really great sequel, now I'm looking forward to the next one.

    • Brilliant just the like first book they wrote the ending is a cliff hanger

    • Last week I reviewed the first book in the Hollow Earth series, which I really enjoyed. The second book, Bone Quill, was just as big a treat as the first book was, perhaps even more so as some of the elements I enjoyed in the first book had a larger role in this book and we got to see more of the adults and their history. As this is book two in a series and this book starts where the previous book leaves off and deals with the fall out of that earlier book, it is impossible to discuss Bone Quill [...]

      Actual rating: 3,5 - I am not sure how I found out about this series, perhaps from a tweet from one of the authors (John Barrowman, who I followed because he played Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and Torchwood), but I knew that I wanted to read it because I thought the summary was quite interesting. I bought the first book, and was pleasantly surprised, even though it was a book written for children I enjoyed it very much. It wasn't the best story I've ever read, but I did like it enough to [...]

    • Woah! If there was one thing that I was not expecting from this series, it was (view spoiler)[time travel (hide spoiler)]. This does not change the fact that the plot of Bone Quill hinges entirely on it. For the first half of the book, I honestly felt let down. The sudden new ability infuriated me for some reason (more on that later).I put it down and went away for a few months (exams and the Blood of Olympus are to blame for this)When I picked it up again, everything got moving. In my Hollow Ea [...]

    • The sequel to Hollow Earth is enrapturing from the start, and we soon figure out that there is a whole lot more to this story than first thought. Solon's story, dated in the middle ages, finally begins to make sense when we realise that Matt and Emily have one amazing animare power fairly early on in the book. Every aspect of the plot from then on is driven by this realisation to enable a very complex and interesting story. The children find themselves in much more grave situations than before, [...]

    • Review first published on My Blog. Check out all my reviews there!The second book in the Hollow Earth trilogy by John & Carole E. Barrowman. Matt and Em are just learning more and more about their powers, their family history, their father, and Book of Beasts that was created to keep the most dangerous creatures of myth and legend away from the rest of the world. At the same time, they are worried sick and trying to find any trace of where there mother has disappeared to. Clues start to poin [...]

    • This was equal to, if not better than, the first book. I enjoyed the time travel element (seriously, could I expect anything left from Jack freakin' Harkness?), I still love the characters, and the ending leaves plenty of questions for the third book. One thing I like about these books is that they don't "child" it down at all. The characters are more developed and flawed than in other books for this age group (4th-6th grade, which I'm assuming is the target audience), the plot is complex and wi [...]

      We thought this was the first book in the series, but it's the second. Oh we'll. No wonder we were so confused by the prologue! But once into the book, we enjoyed it. This fantasy/time-travel story alternates between modern times at a monastery on a Scottish island and the Middle Ages at the same monastery. Logan liked the medieval parts best. I (mama) liked all the references to real paintings and the idea that the artists (like Van Gogh, Seurat, and Turner) were Animare; people who can animate [...]

    • This is a completely imaginative series with an engaging plot and characters. The story focuses on Matt and Emily Calder, twins who are both Animare - those who can bring to life what they draw - and Guardian - those who can sense other's emotions and even control them, being important in helping the Animare control their powers. This combination of powers is considered dangerous by some, and a source of gain by others. While the children learn to use and control their increasing abilities, they [...]

    • A really excellent sequel to Hollow Earth. A childrens book with massive appeal that I happen to think would make a fantastic movie. The original idea behind Hollow Earth of being able to animate inside paintings is expanded upon and it seems that the twins can also use paintings to travel back in time to when they were painted, a talent that would make them seem even more dangerous to the Guardians who seek to bind their powers. Well written with a plot that weaves through Scotland in the prese [...]
