Comments The Twistrose Key

  • Marie the Librarian

    What a wonderful magical book! I felt like I was 10 years old again and entering a unique and amazing world!!

  • Barb Middleton

    Lin Rosenquist reminds me of Dorothy who gets transported to Oz, except Lin ends in the enchanted city of Sylveros, home to Petlings, animals who were once the favorite pet of a child. Dorothy's pet was the dog, Toto, whereas Lin's pet is a vole, Rufus, who is now the size of a human and can talk like one. The magic of Sylveros is fed by the wild joy that children feel when the first snowfall happens. Now imagine a Norwegian Dorothy. She's in a blue and white wool sweater with mittens, hat and m [...]

  • Desiree

    This book is as clear, sparkling, and magically crisp as a walk outside on a midwinter's night. It's a quest tale, but so lovingly rendered and comprehensively constructed that I found myself wanting to wander around in the imagined world after the completely satisfying ending. I can't wait for Tone Almhjell's next journey back to Sylveros, if one is planned! Highly recommended for readers age 9-adult, human, wildling, and petling alike. Read it now, while it's cold outside. :)

  • Karenina González

    4.5*Este libro, como bien dice Laini Taylor, es magia pura. Es tan bello y tan fantástico que me sorprende que sea autonconclusivo. Me encanta. ¡Un punto ( y dos y tres y cuatro) para la señorita Almhjell!

  • Flor Méndez

    Bardo, animalitos bonitos y una raza de gente que maneja el hielo que me gustaría conocer. Medio como que Platelia me enamoró.

  • H. S. Palladino

    Everyone has been raving about this book and now I understand why. A lovely story, wonderful fairytale, well written. What more to ask?

  • Mara

    Cover Blurb: Yes or No? Oh my gosh, yes. It's gorgeous! With the gold and the midnight blue and the little woodcut animal illustrations. While the synopsis caught my attention, this was, in all honesty, a faith buy totally based on the cover art.Characters: Lin is adventurous, curious, intelligent, and therefore the ideal protagonist for a Middle Grade story. I would have questioned her absolute readiness to jump headlong into an adventure without preparation or question, but she's a kid. Somewh [...]

    Get the tissues ready folks! If animals hold a soft spot in your heart, like they do mine, you will definitely need them from the middle grade fantasy book, The Twistrose Key by Tone Almhjell. The book is very very similar to the land of Naria, but I loved the premise behind it.Lin Rosenquist is an eleven year old girl who just moved from her beloved Summerhill to Old Towne, where she has no friends and her favorite pet, Rufus, has died. When Lin is sent a key in a mysterious parcel, she follows [...]

  • Elizabeth Mathis

    With blood on her thorns she must creep through the wall.When the last hope is lost, a Twistrose is called.---There are books with young characters that are awkward, stilted, and suffocatedd then, there's The Twistrose Key. From page one, the prose is beautiful and lilting--an almost lullaby whispered across the mind of the reader. The story opens with Lindelin Rosenquist, alone next to a rosebush, missing her friend Rufus. As the novel progresses, Lin is granted entry to a world that children w [...]

  • Erin

    I had a hard time getting through this book. Premise sounded promising: a girl travels to the magical realm where every dead pet that was loved by a child goes. It's up to her to save the prince and save their world. But I honestly couldn't follow the story. I felt lost half the time, the twists and turns were so convoluted, and every-other word is some term made up by the author, I often felt like I was reading a foreign language. Also, the writing style just didn't click with me. Not a bad sto [...]

  • Hanne

    I read this for my girls of nine and eleven, and am quite convinced that this is the best way to read it. The breathtaking suspense is better appreciated with listeners of that age, and there is less room for critical thoughts of how much comes from Narnia, how much from the Brothers Lionheart etc. And I found myself very much moved by the themes of friendship and separation by death or by growing up, again more so than I would have been on my own. It's not perfect, but writing a book with talki [...]

  • Babel

    Es un cuento infantil precioso, bellamente narrado y con un distintivo estilo de novela negra en su trama de fantasía. Curiosa mezcla, ¿verdad?Claro homenaje a las Crónicas de Narnia con su reino en otra dimensión al otro lado de un portal y su criatura parlanchina que viste una pintoresca bufanda. La felicidad de los niños produce energía en el mundo más allá de los portales, un reino para mascotas donde Lin acaba encontrando a un amigo al que perdió. Una de las cosas que más me ha gu [...]

  • May

    La llave es la última apuesta de la editorial Océano Gran Travesía. Es una novela de fantasía juvenil tanto para niñxs como para jóvenes que cuenta una historia repleta de magia y, sobre todo, amor por los animales y las mascotas. Es una novela que me ha gustado muchísimo y que está cargada de valores.Si hay algo que me maravilla de Océano Gran Travesía es que es una editorial que publica libros que merecen ser leídos por la cantidad de valores que transmiten. La llave es una de esas [...]

  • Sil

    Este pequeñito no bajó jamás de las 5 estrellas en mi "puntuador mental".Es uno de los libros más hermosos que tuve la suerte de leer. Y es de esos que invitan a ser disfrutados en familia, con grandes narraciones y puestas en escena, aunque sea dentro de una simple habitación.Vi su portada en inglés hace mucho tiempo en Pinterest y al leer su sinopsis en , no pude evitar enamorarme de la idea de Platelia: un lugar mágico al cual van a parar todos aquellos animales que alguna vez fueron a [...]

  • Brenda

    The Twistrose Key has been described as a cross between The Chronicles of Narnia and The Golden Compass, and it is every bit as lovely as those two books. Almhiell creates a wonderful world in Sylver, one that should really be read in the Winter time with a cup of your favorite hot beverage and your pet snuggling up next to you. Lucky for me, we had some additional snow over the weekend, so I certainly could identify with the setting. And the beautiful prose, " Lin had lived for eleven years whe [...]

    La llave es un libro de fantasía en el que una niña encontrará la puerta que la transportará a un mundo nuevo.El Valle de Plata, y más concretamente Platelia, es ese sitio al que no todos pueden acceder, pero que muchos, especialmente los que hemos tenido mascotas, desearíamos que realmente existiera.Un mundo en el que todas las mascotas conviven juntas; perros, gatos, conejos, caballos, incluso zorros, actuando como auténticos humanos. Hablan, se visten con ropa e incluso tienen una esta [...]

  • Kat Heckenbach

    This book started off with beautiful writing, and ended with beautiful writing. There were some places in the middle that I found a little confusing and slow, but there were a lot of ideas and clues to plant in this story and it was absolutely worth reading through.It took a while for the story world to really build, but when it finally felt fully-formed, I found it pretty wonderful, and it made me hope for a sequel so I can return to the story world. I loved the concept of the Twistrose--a huma [...]

  • Q

    First of all, the production quality of the hardcover is phenomenal. This is a GORGEOUS book, and no pictures of it do it justice. It would be so great for a child who has recently lost a pet, or simply for a child who loves pets dearly.I wish I liked this better than I did. The style didn't quite work for me. I can't put my finger on why, but as I'd be reading, the sentences didn't quite fit inside my head; they'd slide around and I'd have to read a paragraph twice to understand it. That wouldn [...]

  • Jmorenocidoncha

    Es interesante encontrar a un autor que escribe con las premisas de la ficción comercial anglosajona pero con las bases literarias y de estilo de la literatura europea. Esta novela es un edificio de paredes sólidas e intrincados laberintos. Bajo un planteamiento aparentemente tópico —una chica que cruza la puerta a otro mundo desconocido—, somos conducidos por una trama de personajes complejos —curiosamente, mascotas—, escenas de acción y misterio, y un mundo de una naturaleza hermos [...]

  • Donna

    This has lovely potential for a book, but the storytelling just doesn't quite hit the mark. With tinges of "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe," the author places her child character in an alternate world of talking animals and magic with a mission to complete. However, the world building seems to have become too much for the narrative to manage, making the story stall at points and hard to follow at others. There are some lovely ideas here, but I just could not get fully absorbed in the book [...]

  • Dakota★Magic in Every Book

    This was an exceptionally sweet, fun, and engaging middle grade novel. It focuses on Sylveros (which is rendered in beautiful maps), where pets that had a strong bond with a child go after death, to live a second life. Lin is summoned to Sylveros to solve a mystery and help save the very world of the Petlings, and she is reunited with her recently departed pet, Rufus. It's fun, mysterious, sweet, interesting, and quite an enjoyable story.

  • Cristina

    ¿Recordáis que al principio pensé que sería una novela llena de magia? No me equivocaba. Con tintes que recuerdan a La historia interminable, Narnia y algunas otras historias que también resplandecen por la magia que guardan en su interior, La Llave me ha trasportado a un mundo tan tierno que ojalá existiese de verdad, lleno de aventura y misterio junto a Lin, quien nos guiará a la preciosa ambientación y escenarios que Tone Almhjell ha creado.

  • Christina (A Reader of Fictions)

    Pages Read: 25In my experience, middle grade tends to work really well for me or not so much at all. Looks like this will be the latter. The opening chapters are disjointed and confusing. The narrative will go into a flashback and then return to the present without warning. If I hear that this one's good, I might add it back to my to-read list and get a library copy, hoping for some edits.

  • Kenya

    Ya desde las primeras páginas, con sus dos preciosos mapas, me conquistó. Está narrado de una manera hermosa. Y tiene mucha magia en él. No sólo en la historia, sino en el libro mismo. Irremediablemente recuerda a Las Crónicas de Narnia, pero también nos regala esperanza a todos los que alguna vez hemos amado a una mascota.

  • Lastik

    una historia con mucha magia. Que gustará a pequeños y grandes por todo el mundo de fantasía que nos muestra la autora. Donde no hay falta de detalles y parece que estás viviendo la aventura junto a sus protagonistas tan particulares como son una niña y su mascota, un topillo.Más sobre mi opinión en la reseña del blogalmalectora/20

  • Danny Phanton

    Reseña en mi blog: La cueva de Danny.4.5 Me encantó, muy fácil de leer, lleno de magia y con unos personajes que ame completamente.

  • Gina (My Precious Blog)

    Closer to 3.5 stars. I think this is a great read for kids, with lots to keep them entertained. As an adult I'd rate it as just ok.

  • Kerri (Book Hoarder)

    This skews a bit younger than I was expecting, but it DOES say 'middle-grade' right there in the summary, haha, so it's my own fault.

    One night. One crazy adventure. 5 stars! I enjoyed it and I'm sure any 8-12 year old would love this book. Definitely going to read it to my daughters soon.
