Dani the Hero 5. Ravello series

   (4 reviews)
Sub-genres: Adventure, Drama

A novel in twelve chapters.

It’s springtime in the Italian mountain town of Ravello, and the community is just starting to wake up for the new tourist season. But something isn’t quite right: businesses are being attacked, and the police are nowhere to be seen.

Into the midst of all this comes twelve-year-old Daniele Ferrero, a kind and gentle boy who dreams of being a hero but really just wants a friend his own age. One night, when he follows a boy he sort of likes, he gets caught up in a dangerous game that will test his faith in humanity.

Greetings, returning readers! Back in the summer I said that, if I wrote another entry in the Ravello series, I would want to tell a different sort of story.

That’s what I’ve tried to do here. As such, let me be honest about one thing right from the start: this is not a love story! Daniele is only twelve, and he has other things on his mind. However, I hope his eventful story will capture your imagination in other ways.

A wonderful story of a boy's journey from loneliness towards friendship. A journey full of as many twists and turns as the mountainous roads and paths on the Amalfi coast. A sometimes dangerous adventure which tests the limits of friendship and self-reliance. It's all about growing up and self-discovery and hopefully not getting hurt along the way. Overcoming obstactcles and triumphing in the end. This really is a boy's own story written with the panache of a seasoned author, James Carnarvon. A pleasure to read.

An intimate story of friendship and sacrifice inside a detective story, inside a travel guide.  The story has it all realistic characterizations, intricate plot, dramatic plot,  and a vivid setting. 
Well worth the read.  Exceptional.

Dani is a very different kind of hero who is quiet, observant and very curious boy reaching out to become a teenager.  Ravello is a beautiful and safe town to grow up, but a sudden series of crimes catches Dani's attention and he sets out to find out what is happening.  His efforts  gain him new friends, but also puts him in danger.  This story is filled with the beautiful and sensual details of the Amalfi coast and its wonderful inhabitants.  You will be captivated by Dani, his friends old and new as they navigate both life and new dangers. 

Dani the Hero is a stand alone novel written with care and love by the very talented James Carnarvon.  It is part of the Ravello series that shares many of the wonderful characters and setting.  As a mystery and adventure it is a different genre than the other stories.

James is a very skilled writer who maintains your interest throughout the story.  This particular book stands alone, but you will most likely want to read the prior books in the series once you have finished this story.

The fourth in a series of fantastic storied about a band of like minded individuals in the sleepy little town of Ravello, Italy. It is a tale of where curiosity can and will bring you, as the edges of danger are skirted. Impeccable locations, exquisitely described. You aren't only reading, you have gone along for the ride.

While it is a standalone story, you won't be disappointed, you will quickly find yourself looking for the others!
