The Hidden City of Chelldrah-ham by Stephan von Clinkerhoffen is the third book in the Belas Rift series, an intelligently written and gripping tale that combines sci-fi with fantasy to score great success in entertainment. Readers follow two compelling heroes, Stig and Meg, chasing Anet, the evil one. They go through a portal that brings them to a completely new terrain and this spells trouble — it is Anet’s turf. This place called England could spell the defeat of the Manna and allow the evil woman to unleash her greedy creatures into Chelldrah-ham. Can the answer to their quest be in the Temple hidden deep within the earth, the temple that seems to beckon irresistibly to Stig? Can they discover what it takes to beat an enemy on her own turf, and what about the flying machine that keeps chasing them? This is a story with many twists and surprises, a work of great imagination that will take readers to strange and exciting places.
I found the writing beautiful, the plot well-paced, and the conflict masterfully developed. The idea of the Manna was new to me — could it be the creation of the author? The conflict is so well developed it seems to be what holds the story together. It is interesting to see how the characters evolve through the conflict. They are so real that readers will not have a hard time connecting with them. The author has created very tight situations for the characters and it’s interesting to see how they manage to get out of these situations. Overall, The Hidden City of Chelldrah-ham is a gripping story with a huge potential to entertain a wide audience. Stephan von Clinkerhoffen creates a very delightful story and an enchanting setting for readers.
