I read a book called the Book of Lies.It is a book about a boy called Marcel who lost his memory and was taken away to an orphanage in Fallside where he is helped regain the memory of his former life. I liked this book because it had lots of action and new surprises. It’s a mix of third person and
first person. I would recommend it to children between the ages of 7-11. Here is the blurb:
In the dead of night, four faceless men bring a sleeping boy to an orphanage in the remote high country of Elster. Here, an ageing wizard, Lord Alwyn, steals away the boy’s memory using the magical book of lies. But Lord Alwyn was secretly thwarted by a girl named Bea, who hears the boy’s name: Marcel.
Marcel learns that the mysterious book can tell falsehood from truth. But can it tell him who he really is? When a stranger arrives, Marcel discovers he has a vital part to play if the Kingdom was to be saved from evil.
But something is not right. Is the stranger all that he claims to be? And what should Marcel make of the ominous golden verses that suddenly appear in the book itself? Does the book really tell truth from lies?
