The Story of Cirrus Flux Book Review

The Story of Cirrus Flux Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 16, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Dive into Matthew Skeltons new adventure about an orphan boy, a fiery bird and a battle for a priceless token. Kidzworld reviews The Story of Cirrus Flux.

Author: Matthew Skelton

Cirrus Flux doesn’t know he’s special. He doesn’t know that his father left him at the orphanage with a powerful token containing the Breath of God. He doesn’t know that a greedy Guild member is after him and his token. Not until Pandora shows up with a warning, that is.


Pandora’s Master

Pandora used to live at the same orphanage as Cirrus. But she was apprenticed to a stern woman, Madam Orrery, who has made a career out of hypnotizing people to relieve their pain. Madam Orrery has only one goal in mind: to find Cirrus Flux and steal his token.


The Breath of God

Twelve years ago, Madam Orrery and the other members of the Guild of Empirical Science witnessed a revelation. An explorer named James Flux revealed the contents of his token—a brilliant light they called “the Breath of God”—which he discovered in his travels. He promised to set sail again and find more. Unfortunately, James Flux never returned.


On the Run

Before his departure, James’s wife died giving birth to his child. He pays the orphanage to take him, and leaves behind his token—a little piece of James to leave with his son, Cirrus. Now, twelve years later, Cirrus is on the run from Madam Orrery, Mr. Sidereal, and a man with a bird of fire. One of the three only wants to protect him. Will he put his trust in the right hands?


The Bottom Line

A far more gripping tale than Endymion Spring, The Story of Cirrus Flux is definitely worth reading. The book is set in 18th century London, but don’t be discouraged if historical fiction isn’t your cup of tea. The book reads like a timeless adventure, much like Angie Sage’s Septimus Heap series or The Neverending Story. If you’re into YA adventures, you’ll like this book.

    I wish I didn't struggle with myself, physically. It led to awful things that I regret doing in the past.

    I agree... I don't care about being overly skinny like the models... I seen terrible pictures where young actors turned into skeletons (no puns) because they think they  are still not skinny...

    This is for everyone who doesn't care about needing to eat more or less. I care about my body. I'm proud of it. And I don't listen to others when they say, "Do you eat enough?" I'm a light weight. I know. And I'm proud!!!
