FIRSTLY I WISH TO THANK RACHEL OF AUTHORIGHT FOR INVITING ME TO TAKE PART ON MY BLOG TOUR FOR THE CUBIT QUEST by TREVOR LECK
The Cubit Quest
Twelve-year-old Charlie Watkins could have inherited his dad’s massive intellect. He got his massive feet instead.
Perhaps if Charlie had that intellect he might have been able to figure out why so many men in suits were suddenly following him or where his dad hid the Cubit – a mythical object that men have sworn to protect and even more have died trying to possess – before his so-called accident.
If starting yet another new school wasn’t bad enough, Charlie meets Mr Leopold, a disfigured, mind-reading lunatic and discovers that he alone must find the Cubit if he is to save his dad. The Brotherhood, however, have other ideas. Led by the ruthless Draganovic, they will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. With the help of Mr Leopold and fellow new boy Elvis, Charlie sets out on The Cubit Quest.
Hunting for the Cubit, playing football, lessons with the dreaded Funeral Face and unsuccessfully avoiding school bully Grimshaw by day, Charlie finds his nights no less complicated. Stalked in his dreams, he’s soon immersed in a world of power struggles, battling dragons and duels to the death. With the Brotherhood hot on his heels and as the bullets begin to fly, there are no guarantees that Charlie, or anyone else, will make it to the end in one piece.

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is the start of a super new YA series set in North Shields. Charlie is 12 and use to have a normal life until one day his dad just stopped communicating. He could eat, get dressed and walk but it was like he wasn’t in his head anymore, just sort of on an auto pilot function. So now Charlie, his dad and mum had moved into a small grotty house and Charlie was going to have to face a new school. But these weren’t the only changes Charlie was going to face, because Charlie wasn’t like other boys…………he just didn’t know it yet.
This is a bit of a young super sleuth detective type book for young adults but with the addition of a mythical element that will keep them really entertained. I mean how can you become a super hero when you are part of the school bullies daily routine of literally getting his kicks? Well Charlie did find his way, with a little help.
What a wicked story this is of dodgy men in suits with flash cars, mythical tales of magic with coloured dragons battling for good and evil, but most of all the hope of Charlie getting his dad back to being dad again. Trevor Leck has created a hero in Charlie and a bit of a side kick hero with Elvis, Charlie’s new best friend from school. I know that my grandchildren would love this book, which I would say makes great reading for an Hero for them to look up to.
I still look back very fondly on books which I started by reading at a young age. This one I believe will become that stepping stone for many.
