Author A. J. York is back with another book in the Delilah Dusticle series. I was offered a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Thoughts:

This is a rather short novella about Delilah’s adventure in India. The story is fast paced and there is not a single moment in which you are likely to feel as though the author is beating around the bush. It is a simple, fun filled adventure where Delilah and the other Dust busters go off to save he world, or more like a girl from the clutches of a powerful and cursed storm. We once again meet all the wonderful characters from the previous books and it feels as though it is a reunion of old friends. The author leaves us with a taste of what is to come in what might be the final book of the series. The author has managed to capture the essence and beauty of India as well as the heat! The descriptions of the transport systems, the train station etc were spot on.

A delightful short story for fans of the series, this is a perfect book for young readers. It is easy to understand and is comparable on some level with the Faraway series and many others by Enid Blyton. I strongly recommend this book and the others in the series for youngsters starting out to read or still too young to pick up a book. It can be read out to them. The perfect bedtime novel.
