The seuel to Is US Is Underground is another of Joan Aiken s unputdownable novels in the James III Wolves seuence The villains are as villainish as ever with few redeeming features the young and not so young protagonists are regularly scrobbled and much of the fairytale action which would normally be regarded as implausible acuires a degree of reality through Aiken s powerful storytellingRich in details the novel dovetails chronologically into the rest of the series but can be enjoyed just about as a standalone Most of the action takes place in Kent along the coast from Aiken s beloved Sussex but in Aiken s usual timeframe where the 1830s or the early 1840s are not uite as the history we are familiar with

Cold Shoulder Road Free read õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Having freed the children enslaved in the northern mines Is Twite and her cousin Arun return to Folkestone to find Arun's mother But she has disappeared without. In this ninth entry in Aiken s Wolves Chronicles and the second featuring Is Twite as a heroine Is and her cousin Arun go in search of Arun s mother in Folkstone Here they must contend with a band of ruthless smugglers known as The Merry Gentlemen and a strange religious cult called the Silent Sect Aiken delivers her usual assortment of odd characters and unexpected plot developments including unknown Twite relations a long lost royal treasure and a frigate stuck at the top of a treeI was surprised to discover while reading Cold Shoulder Road that I was becoming somewhat impatient with Aiken s series As I mentioned in my review of Is Underground the two titles featuring Is Twite do not rank among my favorites in the Wolves Chronicles mostly because I consider Is Twite to be a shallow and unsatisfactory copy of her older sister Dido But this title in particular struck me as being the low point in Aiken s extended narrative about an alternative Britain The author utilizes all of her regular tricks and perhaps that is part of the problem As paradoxical as it may be her unconventionality almost seems routine by this pointI might have stopped reading the series at this point if I hadn t discovered that the next title Dangerous Games reverts back to Dido s adventures As a side note although I didn t really enjoy Cold Shoulder Road I loved the cover artwork by Edward GoreyAddendum Because the reading order of this series is somewhat complicated I have included this handy guide which is organized by publication date and which I recommend to prospective readers of the series rather than the one offered here on GoodreadsReading Order for the Series1 The Wolves of Willoughby Chase2 Black Hearts in Battersea3 Nightbirds on Nantucket4 The Whispering Mountain5 The Cuckoo Tree6 The Stolen Lake7 Dido and Pa8 Is Underground9 Cold Shoulder Road10 Dangerous Games11 Midwinter Nightingale12 The Witch of ClatteringshawsA few notes Is Underground is the American name for the British original Is Similarly Dangerous Games was originally published in Britain as Limbo Lodge The Wolves of Willoughby Chase features two characters that recur but the two young heroines do not The Stolen Lake is the point at which the chronology becomes somewhat complicated as it is the sixth book but chronicles events that occur in between Night Birds on Nantucket 3 and The Cuckoo Tree 5 Is Underground or Is and Cold Shoulder Road both feature Is Twite cousin to the main heroine Dido They occur alongside the other books and their position in the series is not chronologically relevant Dangerous Games Limbo Lodge is another title that backtracks in the chronology Although not technically part of the series Aiken s Midnight Is a Place does occur in the same alternative timeline and is set in Blastburn the same imaginary city that features in the other books
