    One thought on “The Griffin Cryer”

    1. It is amazing how an ordinary act can have extraordinary consequences. This is what happened to Frankie Shaunessy when she tried to call her dog home. Instead, she summons a griffin from another world, complete with his Rider - wearing fancy dress! That is how Julia Hughes starts her book The Griffin Cryer.Frankie is determined to help Balkind, the griffin, and his rider return to their own world. Her efforts, set against the backdrop of a young woman trying to balance school, friends, teenage a [...]

    2. The Griffin Cryer is an enthralling and imaginative tale, suitable for readers of all ages.The lovable heroine Frankie embarks upon a fantastic adventure between two worlds as she encounters the Griffin with "barley sugar hornsd gossamer wings" and the Rider. The scenes in Frankie's school (with the ever present teenage angst of wanting to be popular and cool) are startlingly realistic and the transition to another dimension is seamless and believable.We meet a solid, dependable policeman, loyal [...]

    3. I really enjoyed it. It didn't go where I expected it to, so kept me guessing.The writing is really easy going, flows along nice and smoothly, with clear and believable dialogue.On the downside, although I found the villain suitably villainous, I wanted his motives to be more clear, and I got rather muddled by what stone did what and whether the rider had what he wanted at the end, or if he'd settled for an alternative.On the plus, the climax was thrilling and rewarding, and I'd certainly read a [...]

    4. *spoiler alert*She was only calling for her dog. It was dusk and strange imaginings always occur within centuries-old cemeteries, right? Yet, upon seeing `green eyes' within a huge dark shadow then feeling a blast of `hot fetid air' and the near graze of a `sail-sized leathery wing,' 15-year old Frankie wasn't so sure this was imagined. When a young stranger `wearing fancy dress' appears out of the dark mist within the old cemetery and speaks, "Did you summons my griffin?" she runs for her life! [...]

    5. Francesca is 15 years old and prefers to be called Frankie. Ever since her brother had a freak accident that has left him in a coma for the last couple of years she has felt like an outsider amongst her peers. Her only true friend being her brother Michael's dog Bally. Frankie worries constantly about her mother and has a good, but tentative relationship of sorts with her stepfather. Just when Frankie's life couldn't get any stranger, whilst out walking Bally she 'accidently' summons a Griffin f [...]

    6. Probability of mythological creatures existing = the same as finding a needle in a haystack the size of the Empire state.Probability that said mythological creature shares same name as your dog = the same as to find that one day that my brother’s dog dances mambo like a pro.Probability of you trying to call your dog and instead said creature appear = the same as knowing the exact number of grains of sand that are on Earth.Well it seems I just made the impossible happen, while trying to find my [...]

    7. There is a unique sense of place in “The Griffin Cryer.” Frankie is very clearly English and speaks in an appropriate slang for her region. Her specific dialect may throw readers off for a moment but in this global age, a reader will not take long to adjust. “The Griffin Cryer” was a good book. Frankie is a fun character who grows exponentially within the scope of the story-line. There are certain elements that the reader can anticipate the end result from introduction but the journey is [...]

    8. He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying. -Friedrich Nietzscheone night, as fifteen-year old Francesca Shaunessy frantically calls her dog Ballykinny to come to her side, a griffin named Balkind responds instead. Frankie gets to meet the griffin's Rider too. what happens next alters Frankie's world in more ways than onethor Julia Hughes' fantasy novel is a perfect escape for young and adult readers who want to wh [...]

    9. I like a bit of fantasy but what I like about this novel is that it is firmly set in the real world. This is something that Julia Hughes is very good at, with her Celtic Cousin adventures, she manages to create realistic and grounded characters that find themselves in extraordinary situations.Fifteen year old Frankie takes her dog out for a walk and gets more than she bargained for when she summons a griffin, and its rider as well. But Frankie also has other things to contend with in her life - [...]

    10. The Griffin Crier by Julia Hughes was truly an amazing and magical story for all ages. It was action packed filled with wonderment and excitement. The characters were so realistic. I love that Julia gave the Griffin a personality that made you want to take him home. Frankie is a typical teenager that everyone can relate to, but she is also strong and full of life. The Rider reminds me of the knight in shining armor, rescuing Frankie in a sense. This is such a unique story that intertwines myth w [...]

    11. This, though a young adult book, is a most enjoyable read. With a lot to deal with in her young life, Frankie is great and endeavours to do her best as she deals with her own sense of loss and the emotional cauldron at home. The Rider and Balkind change her life. I loved the magic and the storytelling. Some of the scenes where the girls were in lessons held the story up a bit for me but that is my only criticism. I loved Frankie's strength, choosing to live her own life and trust herself.

    12. A read-for-review book for The Mind Palace, this was a joy to discover. I'll certainly be picking up Hughes' other stories, for it's a long time since I found something which appealed so firmly to my taste for easy, nostalgic English myth and comprehensive school realism.

    13. This was a brilliant book for the YA market and very readable as an adult too. If you like dragons then you'll enjoy the Griffin in this book. There is a mix of modern life and very old English Celt history, with the temptation of more books to come in the series. A great book.

    14. Frankie calls for her dog, and instead summons a griffin with a very similar name. A fairly obvious mistake, but the starting point for a great little teenage fantasy.

    15. 'The Griffin Cryer' is a charming story of how an accidental summoning of a griffin and his rider bring two different people together, while a common enemy will change their lives forever. For the Rider, it's a struggle to return home, while Franky must struggle with being a teenager and being targeted by malevolent enemy bent on using her to their own sinister gains.Fans of 'Pegasus and the Flame' by Kate O' Hearn might find an instant liking to this fantasy story that is complete with a lovabl [...]

    16. This book takes you on an adventure like no other, with characters you'll not soon forget, right from the very first chapter. The Griffin Cryer is a fun book for all ages!The griffin (Balkind) is one of a kind and a truly unique character. He and his rider are impressively written and are brought to life perfectly. The world they 'arrive' from is cleverly created and added a level of higher fantasy to the storyline. The other characters within the pages are also all very well written and have cl [...]

    17. It's difficult for a book to completely transport you into a different reality even when the world where the story takes place is totally different from yours. Well, this book did just that. The story is set in our world, with elements coming from another world and it totally gripped me. The characters were realistic and believable on every level. The plot twists and turns and fasts forward in a way that keeps your attention from beginning to end. I loved the fantasy part because it didn't feel [...]

    18. This was a fun, light read, with enough depth threaded through the telling for it to have almost no fluff at all. Issues of assault, school bullying, loss, and trust all surface at various points, and for the most part they're dealt with very well. As for the premise--come on! You're calling your dog and a griffin shows up? Loved it. The pacing towards the middle dragged a little, and I found the character of Ford to be more of a plot device than a person (he showed some signs of humor, but we s [...]

    19. Frankie is a teenager who goes to have a walk with her dog and, "by accident", ends up calling a griffin and its rider from another world. While trying to help them to go back to their own alternative world, Frankie will have to go through some challenging events. This is another book that I started reading with high expectations, but it made me roll my eyes lots of times very soon after I started reading it. There are inconsistencies, typos, odd punctuation, and even missing words. Apart from t [...]

    20. I absolutely loved The Griffin's Boy and this is the next book in the series. This one is set 'here' as young Francesca, or as she prefers Frankie, mistakenly calls Neb and Balkind from their universe to here. The story has some parts that had me smiling widely and particularly liked when Tony clocked the baddie! It follows the Rider as he fights to return to his own world and his revelation to Frankie that she can help her brother who is in a coma was fabulous! Then Frankie decides to go with h [...]

    21. Julia Hughes stole my heart in her book The Griffin Cryer. I am forever a Griffin rider want-a-be. Her tale of a parallel world, peopled with griffins and people who ride them to help humanity is a story sure to delight anyone who has read Anne McCaffrey’s, Dragonrider’s of Pern series will find such joy in Ms. Hughes novels depicting a world filled with flying griffins.In The Griffin Cryer, Ms. Hughes intersects our world with the world of the griffins as Frankie accidentally calls Balkind [...]

    22. Beautiful mixture of fantasy and realityWith many fantasy books, the whole story takes place in fantasy land. I really enjoyed the mix of fantasy and reality in the Griffin Cryer. After Frankie accidentally calls the Griffin, she deals with it, but her normal life carries on – problems at school, trying to work on a relationship with a boy and avoiding bullies. The Griffin and it’s rider appear sporadically in the beginning, but as the story progresses, they have an ever bigger impact on her [...]

    23. Full of action and written beautifully, I would recommend this book to all fantasy lovers. I loved this book I love Julia hughes style of writing This the first time i have read one of her book's and i love it

    24. Really a great story. Only bone was the use of Alice with Frankie's brother. Loved the way 'The Rider' remained mysterious throughout the tale. The conflicts are real and made of the stuff of everyday life. Great Read!

    25. Good storyA very different spin on the fantasy world. Good beginning to a new series. I really enjoyed it! Good read!

    26. This book drew me in from the first page, but I really didn't like the end I'm hoping there are more books set either in this story line or in Ella-Earth. :)

    27. I thought it was okay. I just wish that the characters were more fleshed out and that the villain's motive was more clear.
