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.'

 High Recommendation

This was book was a super fun read and I can't wait to get my hand on the next Volume.

This story was a well written, the plot, though slow at the start quickly picked up around the 25% mark. From then on wards it was a fast thrill ride that had me hooked until the end.

This book is written for young readers and the writing and tone reflects that. So if you are looking for a fun, mysterious, captivating read for you and your little one, then this book is perfect for you. There is also a bit of a paranormal vibe, with ghost, and some other little jewels that pop in.  So if you're like me and like reading for funise, then this book if for you...This book is for everyone. It had a Pixar vibe, and I know everyone of all ages will enjoy it.

My overall impression is that, this book is worth the read, with a mystery that unfolds at the end and all the other dark secrets that are being kept. This story captures you form the start, there is something for everyone.  So take my high recommendation that you will be pulled into the thrilling, action packed adventure.

Happy Reading
