PDF - The Child Thief

Her hands began to tremble and she clutched them to her chest. After a few pages of tension, darkness and [censored] followed, the prologue ends with the arrival of the titular character and the following ominous passage: The boy came and knelt beside her. While she cried into her hands, he told her of an enchanted island where no grown-ups were allowed. Where there were other kids like her, who loved to laugh and play.

Where there were great adventures to be had…What else did she have to lose? Reading the opening prologue was like a shot in the gut and I think Brom handled it perfectly. He let the reader know immediately that this was not the Peter Pan from the Disney stories and they were preparing to embark on a journey that was dark and dangerous and different from what they have experienced before.

From that single, brutal image, this version was born. However, even those that have read the original Barrie stories, the ones not watered down by convention and propriety, will find a much different Peter here.

Every shred of the game-playing trickster has been transformed into a wounded, traumatized solider child whose pain has hardened him into a borderline sociopath.

In his recruitment of children, he gives no thought to preying on their weaknesses in order to win them to his cause.

By doing so, he humanizes all that Peter does and it adds a depth to his character that no other adaptation has ever come close to equaling. As a character, Peter is amazing and I can not adequately express the praise Brom should receive for taking such a well known figure and completely fleshing him out.

Men-kind shared this world for but a blink, then, sadly, they became enlightened, found science and religion. The new world of men left little room for magic or the magical creatures of old.

There are so many nooks and crannies to this world to explore that my head feels like it is going to burst trying to distill it down in this review. Let me just say that this is an epic story with a large cast painted against a wonderfully crafted setting that is perfectly realized by Brom.

The story reaches its climax with all of the forces meeting in a final unexpected clash that will shake the order of things in both worlds forever. The children become merciless, bloodthirsty and savage. Taken from abusive homes, they leave for a place where there are children from similar backgrounds.

Brom discusses [2] how this relates to gang culture. The children are slowly affected by Avalon's magic and become a powerful force. This knowledge of superiority coupled with the right circumstance could easily cause innocent children to become killing machines. Judging from what goes on in modern gang culture, seeing how quick teens are to define their own morals, to justify any action no matter how horrific, I believe it wouldn't be that hard.

Brom, The Child Thief. The Flesh Eaters were Christians in search of a place to live without anything that contradicts their belief systems.

The Reverend, once a good man, if somewhat bigoted, becomes a twisted soul who takes sadistic pleasure in torturing children. The people are led deeper and deeper into insanity as the magic of Avalon affects them.

The Flesh Eaters are evil creatures, but the reader is introduced to their side of the story.

They want to go home to families and away from this island, and put what they want ahead of all decency. This still leaves the question of whether you could go anywhere to be safe from anything that contradicts your beliefs. The beasts of Avalon, however, are before the Flesh Eaters a light and airy people who worry more about merriment and joy than seriousness or war. They worship pagan gods with true powers who live among them.

They want the same thing as the Flesh Eaters, for them to leave and never return. The beasts are a joyous lot and if it were not for the arrival of the flesh eaters, they would be yet in a similar situation.

Brom finally reveals the story of the Flesh Eaters, and although it doesn't change their evil action, it does explain how they got there. The reader is left to decide for themselves who to root for. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Languages Add links. The beasts of Avalon were -- before the Flesh Eaters -- a light and airy people who worried more about merriment and joy than seriousness or war. To sum up, I cannot praise this book highly enough. And it's hell of a unique, even though the story is actually mix of Celtic myths, of Avalon, of Peter Pan not the disney version, but the original - which had hints of darkness in Peter, which readers usually miss - though i haven't read original, the quotes Brom put in afterword were quite disturbing , and it all makes even more sense when you read what author wrote in the end of the book.

I don't see how this is better for them and neither does Nick, a boy Peter "rescues" from bad shit going down in Brooklyn NY.

A history is offered.
