This is the third book in the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series by LaFevers. It was in keeping with the rest of the books in the series and was a fun and quick read. The book takes a little over an hour to read and is aimed at younger age to middle grade children. I got this book as an advanced reading copy from netgalley.
In this book Nathaniel and his Aunt return home to find their house ransacked…they suspect the man who did it may be the same one who tried to steal the Book of Beasts. Then they receive a message that the Wyvern’s treaty has been broken. Aunt Phil and Nathaniel can only race to try and fix things with the Wyvern; hoping that some of the mysteries surrounding the man who is causing all the trouble will be revealed along the way.
This book dealt more with the over-arcing story involving the mysterious man that has been causing a lot of trouble. The main story of the trouble with the Wyvern is also resolved nicely. If you liked the previous Nathaniel Fludd books you will like this one. Nathaniel is gradually getting more comfortable with his adventures and Aunt Phil is slowly accepting that Greasle might be a keeper.
The illustrations are wonderful and the story is action-packed and fun.
Overall story that young to middle grade kids will really get into. Nathaniel makes for an unlikely hero and Aunt Phil is always a lot of fun! I look forward to the next Nathaniel Fludd adventure.
