Horace, George and Ingle are three brothers, aged 15-17 growing up in a time of relative calm in a land once dominated by great battles. Galray – an expansive kingdom – has enjoyed peace and prosperity for many years under the watchfulness of the knights council and the strong leadership of their father, King Reynold. The boys didn’t know that tonight would be the start of an adventure that would change the course of their lives as they sat down for a game of chess. What starts as a simple storm turns into a race to save the kingdom. Dragons, myths and betrayal lay ahead as the three brothers are forced to lead and become men.
The Adventures of Horace, George and Ingle by HW Cumming makes me think of childhood classics such as The Three Musketeers, King Arthur and his knights, and The Princess Bride.
It starts a little slow, but after a few pages, quickly picks up. It’s a fast-paced fun and
adventure. Fantastic read.
There are great illustrations throughout the book and its a great book to read aloud, My favorite of the brothers was Ingle, but all the brothers have their own separate unique personalities. I could tell the author really cared about them and their friend Roland.
The book is entertaining but also includes valuable life teachings such as the bonding of brothers, challenges that have to be faced as you grow older, and of course the age-old battle between good and evil.
I am highly enthusiastic about this book and the next books to see what other adventures the three brothers will eagerly encompass. I’m hoping the author will eventually weave a non-conventional female character into the adventures.
