5.0 out of 5 stars It's Vesper & Brinnie again... in The Drackenberg Adventure!, Feb. 9 2001
By 
Kiki (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews
"Look out Indiana Jones! Here comes Vesper Holly!"... how completely true in this fantastic book by the author of the Prydain Chronicles. Vesper's back, along with her insufferable guardian Brinnie and his suprisingly strong-willed wife, Aunt Mary. The dear girl has dragged them off again, this time to a diamond jubilee for the Grand Duchess of Drackenberg, where they promptly bump into the notorious Professer Desmond Helvitius. Naturally, Vesper wants to know why Helvitius is visiting Drackenberg, so off she goes, dragging Brinnie around with her like Sherlock Holmes dragged Dr. Watson about the streets of London! Like all of Vesper's stories, adventure is the key. Kidnapping, exploding sausages, and a portrait by Leonardo DaVinci follow, making this a non-stop action adventure! Move over, Indiana Jones! Make way for Vesper Holly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, May 17 2002
By 
apoem "apoem" (Bosque Farms, NM USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Drackenberg Adventure (Paperback)
This is like a Nancy Drew book only better. Vesper Holly is a young woman who is in the care of a couple - Brinnie and his wife Mary are friends of her deceased parents. Vesper is headstrong, courageous, daring, fun, exciting, smart and talented.
In this book her guardians are invited to a diamond jubilee and Vesper convinces them to go. So off they go only to run into their old nemisis who has tried to kill them in previous adventures. This time is no different. A kidnapping, traveling with gypsies, a bomb, and many other exciting things happen.
What an excellent book. I learned a little bit while I read this book and I totally enjoyed the read.
Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vesper is the girl of 1870 and 2001!, Jan. 2 2001
By 
This is a great book for all ages to read. Creative, original and not to mention funny, this book keot me reading until four in the morning. A girl named Vesper, a courageous, smart and strong girl, goes off to the country of Drackenberg with her aunt and uncle. Her dear aunt is then kidnapped, catapaulting them into a high-racing adventure that ends up with a DaVinci painting and guard dogs snapping at their heels. I could not put this book down. It was exciting, suspensful and funny all at the same time. It was a good change from all the books about courageous boys to find one about a smart, strong girl. This book is a great read for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Drackenburg Adventure, Jan. 2 2001
By 
This is one of the Best Books I have ever read. This book is a stroke of genius. The Main character, Vesper Holly, is this strong, smart girl who goes to the country of Drackenburg. There is this evil guy, Helivtius, who tries many creative ways to kill them (Including an exploding sausage). If you are a person looking for adventure, excitement and suspense that is different from your average book, read this! If you are a girl looking for a book about girls who are strong, read this! This is a really good book! Five stars, two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vesper Holly Finds daVinci & Adventure in Drackenburg!, Feb. 4 1999
By A Customer
This was a very good book! I couldn't put it down. Vesper Holly is a very likeable heroine, and there were plenty of funny and dangerous things that happened to them while they were in Drackenburg, including her guardian's wife being kidnapped, rescuing a gypsy girl from drowning, being kidnapped herself, and finding a famous, valuable Leonardo daVinci painting.
