Following in the footsteps of her hero Amelia Earhart, Kitty Hawk sets off on an epic flight around the world and arrives in Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik where she finds herself immersed in a beautiful alien world of volcanoes, Vikings, elves and trolls. Before she knows it Kitty is plunged head first into an amazing adventure that sweeps her across a rugged landscape where humans and nature exist side-by-side in an uneasy truce and magical realms seem to lie just out of sight beneath the surface.
Kitty Hawk and the Icelandic Intrigue is the dazzling third installment of the Flying Detective Agency series featuring Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenaged seaplane pilot with boundless curiosity and a knack for getting herself into - and out of - all kinds of precarious situations.
This is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of readers of all ages - armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike. From dangerous criminals and corrupt government officials to mystical beings and clashes with the elemental forces of nature, this book has it all. Come and join Kitty Hawk as she experiences the strange and extraordinary world of the Icelanders, and unravels the Icelandic Intrigue.
My Review: Back on her way around the world and this time Kitty lands in Iceland. Yup, icy and cold. Someplace I would never visit...the cold is so not my friend.
Any who, Kitty find trouble in Iceland. Yup, but whats some trouble without a little history first? Just like the other books, we learn all about Iceland and anything related to Kitty's current case. Learning without trying, one of my favorite things about these books.
Right now Kitty has to deal with the government and some other issues. But I liked seeing how Kitty deals with the government. People who are in the government aren't exactly nice and Kitty will get herself in a tough situation. Luckily she is smart and gets herself right out of trouble. Then trolls and elves are talked about, which is something I so didn't picture in the book. But I love these twists and turns and it just makes the story even better.
Now Kitty has taken care of another case and is back on her journey around the world. And soon another case is to come.
