Blogtour: The Phantom of New York

The Phantom of New York, volume 1 - Peter and the Crown
by A.L. Janney
Genre: MG/YA Adventure
Release Date: December 2017


'This is a story about vigilantes and magic.
About prophecy and hope.
About a boy and his hotel.

When twelve-year-old Peter Constantine wakes up in the Crown Hotel with a new identity, life is over as he knows it. But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing… 

A dangerous man Peter only knows as “The Client” is after his family, so they’ve relocated to New York City. With help from unlikely friends living at the glamorous hotel, including the ghost on the tenth floor, Peter's new life begins. Soon, however, he learns of a plot to destroy his new home, a plot only the Phantom can foil.

Peter and the Crown is the first book in the Phantom of New York series, an adventure for readers aged ten and up. If you like smart, funny characters and “can’t put it down” escapades, then you’ll love Alan Janney’s Phantom of New York series.'

Review: Such a wonderful story! Full of twists and unexpected allies, I loved this story! It somehow put me in mind of the Thief Lord at times, though with out the fantasy aspect. I feel it was written for around that age group though, perhaps middle grade? Either way I really enjoyed this, though it was a bit slow to start. Once things picked up, it was a race to the end, and a thrill to read! Great for a readathon or for a quick read to catch up on a reading challange.
