I do think this has become my new favourite though, there is real suspense and peril and the action builds throughout. At time for bed Nat realises that his phone and the room key are both missing from his jacket pocket. Once again, the story is brought to life by the beautiful illustrations by Elisa Paganelli, and I love looking for little hints and tips in her artwork, it really is stunning. However these novels are the first books, other than the Frostheart and The Familiars series, that he has been absolutely obsessed with and looking forward to reading them whenever he has the time.

There are several book sets that he has enjoyed in the past like the Elementia series and the Dave the Villager books.

Hal isn't just a train buff, he also has a nose for crime and it seems no matter where in the world they are Hal and Uncle Nat are the Duo to bring crims to justice!

Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned. Harrison Beck and Uncle Nat climb aboard the night train to Narvik, travelling to the Arctic Circle to see the northern lights for Christmas. But first he has to take a plane to Sweden as uncle Nat is there to go to a special dinner with a friend, Morti, who is receiving a Nobel prize and she's asked Nat to go to the ceremony with her. In fact, The Arctic Railway Assassin, the sixth story of the Adventures on Trains‘ series is fast-paced and threatening from the start.The Arctic Railway Assassin can be read as a stand-alone novel, or enjoyed as part of the award-winning Adventures on Trains series written by M. I have heard a rumour that this is the last book, and I can see why that rumour is going round after reading the book, but I hope there will be more books! This time it is not one but 2 deadly assassins and they are caight in the crossfire on the train to the Arctic to see the northern lights. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors.

G. Leonard, Sam Sedgman and Elisa Paganelli step up the urgency, wonder and engagement in the The Arctic Railway Assassin. Hal has been happily developing his own arc and growing as a character, leading me to fear that he was going to suffer an Alex Rider style comedown in his final outing as the realities of the adult world become to real. I enjoy the relationship between Hal and his Uncle and this time Hal's mum is in the story which adds another dimension to the family relationships. This particular train sounds just right because whilst I don't like the cold the idea of a Christmas market somewhere snowy and the Northern Lights as well would sell it to me. The Arctic Railway Assassin can be read as a stand-alone novel, or enjoyed as part of the award-winning Adventures on Trains series.I love the adventures on trains series and this book is as exciting and fact filled as all the others. Hal and Uncle Nat are travelling to see the Northern Lights during the festive season, and as the title may suggest, yup, there's an assassin aboot! There is the inevitable random friendship with another child on the train, but I think Hal may have finally met his match with this one. This is the fourth different illustration style in the series, in keeping with the styles Hal tries out. However, next morning Morti has left the hotel but left a set of keys for Uncle Nat so they can use her cabin.

Pan Macmillan) The next-door cabin to Hal’s and Uncle Nat’s on the Narvik train is empty when Uncle Nat’s friend withdraws from the journey. Thank you Macmillan Publishers and Netgalley for letting me read this early in exchange for a review! The setting is of course a train, however the descriptions of the places they go, people they see and where they are are always written so brilliantly, you barely need the wonderful illustrations this book comes with, however this book is enriched and brought to life by the artwork throughout. It was a nice way to round of the series, bringing another family member in for Hal to find that he doesn't mind sharing these adventures with his uncle but also realising he has other family he can share the fun with.She now lives and works in UK as a freelance Illustrator and Creative Designer, accompanied by her beloved pets. They also give a bit of history on the train, railway line, and the country in which the story is set. The sixth and I think final installment of the Adventures on Trains series sees Hal and his uncle Nat on a train to the Arctic circle, the problem being there is also an assassin aboard!

When they are able to board the train is about to leave when a strange looking woman in a puffy ski jacket and bobble hat with carrier bags in her hands runs for the train.
