An adventurous book with a mystery and some fun . you will like it if you like adventurous. but I found it a little dragging. it is in detail but some paragraphs you felt as if you want to miss but the story was good. if you want a very action packed book which has something in every chapter then I feel this is not the best to choose. but while the story was interesting it was good to read.

the castle of adventure 2015-06-20

This book is set in Scotland and certainly has a Scottish feel to it, with its mountains, castles and golden eagles, though the country is not specified until The Mountain of Adventure, when Jack recalls observing an eagles' nest at a castle in Scotland. It is the Easter holidays and Jack, Philip, Dinah and Lucy-Ann are on holiday with Mrs Mannering at Spring Cottage, which is set on a hill below a castle. Out on the hillside they meet Tassie, a local girl who lives in a tumble-down cottage with her mother and is allowed to run wild. Tassie cannot read or write but has a deep knowledge of animals and the countryside. She is excellent at climbing, sure-footed and has a good sense of direction, relying on her instincts to guide her: "She was more like a very intelligent animal than a little girl." Indeed, with her bare feet, ragged frock and amazing agility she seems to be a part of the wild landscape around her — rather like a sprite or a wood-nymph. Perhaps because he too has a rapport with animals, she latches on to Philip and even brings him a fox-cub, which he names Button. The children's happiness is complete when they discover that Bill Smugs is on a job in the area and plans to visit them soon. Jack and the others are determined to explore the castle on the hill, despite the fact that the road to it has been destroyed by a landslide and is treacherous. Tassie shows them how to climb up the cliff behind the castle and put a plank across from a ledge to one of the slit-like windows so that they can get inside. The castle is "musty, dusty, fusty," as Kiki loves to say, but Jack nevertheless decides to stay there for a few days, in order to photograph some eagles which have built their nest on a crag in the courtyard. Needless to say, puzzling things soon begin to happen. The pump in the kitchen is being used on a regular basis and there is a light in the tower at night. On further investigation, the children discover an underground room in which a group of men hold regular meetings.

Plot summary[edit] In order to try to cut the head off of Kronos' approach by sea, Percy and Beckendorf, the son of Hephaestus, attempt to destroy his ship, the Princess Andromeda. However, Kronos, still possessing Luke Castellan, is not caught off guard because of a spy at Camp Half-Blood, and Beckendorf sacrifices his life to destroy the ship, while Percy dives overboard and passes out from contact with Kronos' scythe when battling him on the ship. Percy is awakened by his half-brother Tyson, the cyclops. He finds that he is in his father Poseidon's underwater palace, which is under siege by the forces of the Titan Oceanus. Percy wants to stay and help fight with his father, but Poseidon sends Percy back to Camp Half-Blood. At Camp Half-Blood, Chiron decides it is time for Percy to hear the "Great Prophecy." Percy informs the camp that there is a spy among them, someone who has been informing the Titans for years, but they put it aside until the bigger issues at hand are dealt with, such as the impending war against Kronos. Soon after arriving, Percy leaves again with Nico di Angelo, son of Hades, to find out Nico's plan for Percy to survive the battle, as mentioned at the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth. After visiting Luke's mother in Westport, Connecticut, and talking with Hestia, goddess of the hearth and home, Percy procures a blessing from his mother, which will allow him to descend into the Underworld for the second time. Here, Nico acts like a jerk and betrays Percy for information on his past, but then helps Percy to escape from confinement. The two boys then follow through with the original plan, which was for Percy to bathe in the River Styx and gain Achilles' power. Percy emerges from the Underworld in New York City, leaving a very depressed Nico behind. Percy calls Annabeth and tells her it's time for the battle to begin. The campers, alongside Chiron, arrive and Percy organizes them (except for the Ares cabin, who refused to fight), and prepares them for an urban battle. They enter Olympus through the Empire State Building to prepare and meet Hermes, who is furious with Annabeth. He believes that she could have stopped the war by helping Luke before he was possessed, saying he would have listened to her. Before the battle begins, New York City is silenced by way of a powerful sleeping spell from Morpheus, the god of dreams, that puts all mortals to sleep. Despite being joined by the Hunters of Artemis; satyrs; naiads; dryads and other tree nymphs; Chiron's centaur cousins the Party Ponies, automatons fashioned by the late Daedalus; and the hellhound Mrs. O'Leary; Percy's forces are consistently forced back by sheer numbers. Kronos is not without losses, as Percy buffets the Titan Lord's brother, Hyperion, into submission, from where Grover's nature powers encase the Titan of the East in a massive maple tree. Annabeth is badly injured when she saves Percy from a blade thrown by Ethan, son of Nemesis, that would have hit Percy in his Achilles point and would have most likely been a fatal injury. Percy tells Annabeth this, informing her that his weak spot is the small of his back. Upon falling asleep, Percy has dreams of Kronos questioning Ethan about where Percy's Achilles spot was, but Ethan doesn't know. But Ethan does suspect that Percy's weak spot is his midsection. Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a mortal who can see through the Mist, flies from a family island vacation to New York to tell Percy that he is not the hero of the Great Prophecy, and that it will influence his choice when he turns 16. More than that, she doesn't know who the hero mentioned in the Great Prophecy is. She also informs Percy that the Titans have a monster on their side that only a child of Ares could destroy, but the Ares cabin remains at camp.

The Castle of Adventure seems to start out like a lot of Five Find-Outer and Famous Five books, where a couple of the children are waiting impatiently for the hols to begin. In this case, Dinah and Lucy-Ann provide a decidedly transparent infodump for the readers' benefit: "One more day and then the hols begin," said red-haired Lucy-Ann. "It's a good thing there's only one day between our breaking-up days..." And Dinah says, "I wonder what this place is like, that Mother has taken for the hols. I'll get out her letter and read it again." But once this is over with, the story gets started quickly enough. It's a year since their island adventure, and the children are staying at Spring Cottage on Castle Hill with Mrs Mannering while their real home is "decorated and cleaned." At the end of the first book, it was made pretty clear that Aunt Polly and Uncle Jocelyn would have to move away from Craggy-Tops because the well had ben rendered useless—and besides, Mrs Mannering had come into a bit of money by way of a reward for catching the bad guys, so could afford to buy a proper house. I was sort of expecting a little more mention of the children's new home, but instead we're whisked away to a remote place twenty miles from the nearest town. But that's fine. This is the sort of place adventures happen!

Mysterious... 2016-12-20

This has become my new favorite series of the Enid Blyton mysteries. I won't say much about the story. You'll have to read it. Kiki the parrot is one of my absolute favorites, as well as Philip and his "pets". Inspector Cunningham, aka Bill "Smuggs" was also another favorite, and I was glad to discover his character was used in the other books, too.

200 fter the exciting adventure encountered by Philip, Dinah, Jack and Lucy-Ann, described in The Island of Adventure, this is the second book in the Adventure series. It's a year since their island adventure, and the children are staying at Spring Cottage on Castle Hill with Mrs Mannering while their real home is "decorated and cleaned." Mrs Mannering tells the children quite firmly to stay away from the castle at the top of the hill because the road up to it fell away in a landslide, and the route is treacherous. But a local "wild girl" by the name of Tassie, who is fascinated by both Philip and Kiki (in that order) and follows them around everywhere, shows them a safe path to the castle. Jack, spotting some eagles, wants to go up to see them, and Mrs Mannering agrees on the basis that Tassie can lead them safely. And the next thing that happens?

THE CASTLE OF ADVENTURE 2017-09-12

Why is everyone so afraid of the castle on the hill and what dark secrets lurk inside its walls? Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, Jack and Kiki the parrot are on holiday in the countryside, staying on the side of Castle Hill. When flashing lights are seen in a distant tower, they decide to investigate and discover a very sinister plot concealed within its hidden rooms and gloomy underground passages. The four adventurers are back in the saddle again, moving from a lonely island to a mysterious castle. The children manage to find a way in to the old, abandoned structure, and all the great elements of a Blyton adventure soon make their appearances. Tassie, the wild girl, is an interesting addition to the cast. It's not clear if she is a gypsy girl or just a local from a very poor family. It's strange to think that there's a whole series of Enid Blyton books that I haven't really read - just a couple of titles out of order. Having collected them in the UK, I never got a chance to read them then, so I'm gradually making sure of them now. Somehow they don't grab my attention like the Famous Fives, which is probably why they're less popular, but I am fascinated by the level of detail Blyton goes into with regards to Jack's interest in birds. For a Blyton book, there is a surprising amount of detail devoted to Jack's abilities and his dedication to his passion for birds. One of the most fascinating aspects of this book for me was the description of Jack working out how to create a hide and setting up his camera, gradually accustoming the eagles to his presence and to the click of the camera. I found myself filled with admiration for the way in which he finally captures brilliant images of the young eagle learning to fly. All of Blyton's main characters tend to be clever and capable, but there is rarely a mention of anything that might suggest a future career or a particular skill. Even in this series, so far only Jack shows what he has in him as a person and what he might achieve. I think I shall enjoy reading this series for that aspect alone. Its a GREAtbook .....

Along with Bill Cunningham, who appears later in the book, the children manage to expose a ring of spies led by the threatening Scar-Neck who are working against the UK Military service.
