The resourceful teenager of Bridle the Wind has five years later turned into the resourceful young man of this the final volume in the Felix Brooke trilogy but though its speedy almost perfunctory Not Without a Fight ending seemed to suggest the way was open for a follow up this was sadly not to be A pity as Felix is anngaging if slightly humourless character and well matched by the prickly Juana the object of his attentionsAs with Bridle the Wind and its predecessor Go Saddle the Sea this volume is set in Garden Bouquets and Beyond early 19th century Spain following the Napoleonic Wars now riven with rival political factions as the author s own Afterword helpfully tells us Felix is persuaded to go on a mission to rescue the kidnapped children of a nobleman but all is not as it initially seemsven though The Unseen Wonder enough clues are presented to the honest young man along the way The action ranges from Galicia in the north west across the Basue Country and Pamplona to the lands south of the central Pyrenees thus covering some of the ground familiar from Felix sarlier adventures latterly with Juana Joan Aiken captures much of the intrigue that 19th century historical novels are rife with not to mention the jeopardy inherent in climbing precipitous mountains staying in isolated villages and coping with dangerous wild animals such as bears Even for someone like me who is not over familiar with this part of the world or is halting in the language the colour she brings to her setting and plot seem authentic The Management Bible enough and though we know this is fiction it hasnough plausibility for the reader to believe it could almost be true And perhaps in a final nod to Jane Austen s Northanger Abbey which Go Saddle the Sea referenced the climax of the tale is set in a ruined castle much as Catherine Morland imagined it What is it really a castle an old castle The oldest in the kingdom But is it like what one reads of Exactly the very same But now really are there towers and long galleries By dozens Familiar from most of Joan Aiken s fiction is the delight a mature reader may garner from all the little period details that could pass by a younger or less Zu schnell experienced reader the flavour of 19th century writing the use of Spanish terms and phrases the references to local history and topography the ordinariness of much of theveryday Sleepless (Bird of Stone, events which renders thextraordinary when it happens less incredible She also does not avoid the reality of unhappiness and death by shielding the target audience from their xistence so.

Be warned some characters you might invest mpathy in do not survive In common with her whimsical tales such as the Dido Twite novels or the fairytale short stories there are recurring motifs such as death by falling from a great height but unlike say Bridle the Wind there is little magic realism Aiken here preferring to simply narrate an xciting tale of adventure and derring doIt s Invisible (The Curse of Avalon evident that Aiken was keen to resolve some of the loosends left dangling at the close of Bridle the Wind Yummy Supper especially whether Felix manages to re connect with Juana It s not a modern romance and Aiken doesn t choose to sugar coat the relationship it s not as unresolved though as the situation in the Wolves of Willoughby Chase seuence where we are left to wonder if Dido and Simon marry If not as strong a work then as the previous two in the trilogy there is still much tonjoy and if the mark of a good novel is that it is worth reading again I shall certainly be keeping The Teeth of the Gale on my shelves for a re visit along with the others in the trilogy Charles Kingsley also refused to unite Tom and Ellie in nuptial bliss in The Water Babies on rather spurious grounds And of course Tom married Ellie My dear child what a silly notion Don t you know that no one ver marries in a fairy tale under the rank of a prince or a princess The main character jumps from age thirteen in the preceding book of this series to ighteen in this so I suppose it should be YA but the Deep Listening earlier books seemed clearly middle grade so I d still call it middle grade though I think it would appeal to slightly older readers I still love Felix but I loved him as a twelve and thirteen year old thanighteen Oh well children do grow and he needed to be older for this one to nd the way it did but I won t spoil it Again Aiken pulls off great adventure with lots of danger and surprise really njoyable to read while I was sick But like Saddle the Sea the last page just stops without a feeling of Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature ending Weird last sentence I thought almost like she didn t uite finish the final draft Well some writers are great at beginnings and middles some better atndings Still a delightful read A good read at any ageI read this trilogy as a teen in the 1990 and over 20 years later it is still a good read I feel as if I was in Spain during that time and am part of the culture Once I started reading I could not stop Another young adult novel this one set in Lara and the Gray Mare (Hoofbeats: Lara and the Gray Mare, early nineteenth century Spain and also part of a tri.
