Britfield and the Lost Crown by C.R. Stewart

Britfield and the Lost CrownBook Description:
Britfield & the Lost Crown is the first book in a thrilling seven-part series for middle school and young adult readers. It will inspire children to engage both their creativity and their critical thinking skills as they encounter actual places, authentic characters, and exciting but realistic events in seventeen action-packed chapters.
Based on family, friendship, loyalty, and courage, Britfield & the Lost Crown and its hero, Tom, take readers on an epic adventure across England – from the smoldering crags of Yorkshire to the heart of London and, finally, to the magnificent shores of Dover.
With help from his best friend, Sarah, and a hot air balloon, Tom flees Yorkshire, escaping from Weatherly Orphanage and the clutches of a relentless detective, in pursuit of the truth about himself and his heritage: Are his parents still alive? Is he the true heir to the British throne? As Tom and a memorable cast of both heroic and dastardly characters unravel a royal mystery that could change the course of history, readers are taken on a breathless journey to a surprise ending that will leave them clamoring for more .
Built on more than seven years of extensive research and development, Britfield & the Lost Crown creates a real world that readers can embrace as it weaves accurate geography, literature, architecture, and history into its fast-paced story. With stimulating language and active writing, Britfield engages the reader from the first pages and doesn’t let go until it reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Thoughts:
I was excited to get this book to review and it certainly did not disappoint.  Tom and Sarah are orphans and they have to escape the horrible orphanage they live in.  There is a detective that specializes in tracking down children and they must evade him if they are going to remain free and get answers to some very puzzling questions.
This book was one adventure/escape after the other.  It is aimed for children but I completely enjoyed it and have shared it with my 12 year old who is enjoying it immensely.  I loved the action, the mystery, and the friendship.  Overall the entire story was well thought out and wonderfully written. 
It is a 5/5 and will stay on my keeper shelf.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
