The People's Treasure by Edward C. Patterson, ISBN 9781453850817, Dancaster Creative Publishers, review by ellen george



Edward C. Patterson is one of my favorite authors. Not only in his prolific writing and varied subject books, but for my favorite series, The Jade Owl series.




The People's Treasure takes up with Rose still in New York with the treasured China banners they, the China Hands have found, to be in a major exhibit, and all of the characters are taken back when the predictions that three ladies tell of the prophecy that the People's Treasure will be found to redeem the promise the Jade Owl started - to awaken the living and the dead.

My favorite character Nicky Battle is still stuck in somewhere and perhaps can be resurrected if the right combination of China relics can be created.

That little green Owl is still hooting and seems to be directing the show, both in present as well as past, and it becomes apparent the gang Rowdy, Rose, Simone, the Dragon Riders, etc. have to go back and try to get the missing coin that will fill the mystery and try to get Nicky back.

In China, Sydney Firestone, with his wife and child, are holding their family's area as safely as they can, but something strange is happening to Sydney...and Nicky Firestone, Sydney's son, seems to want to join his father in the adventure, and he's a 'newcomer' to watch!

The Triangulations, or images used from the ancient relics with the ancient banners, are the most spectacular of the entire series. To read those passages many times for me will not lesson their power.

A very poignant moment between Simone and Nicky Battle (?) is also amazing.

The only negative I will tell you is as I have already noted, each book is over 600 pages and not fast reading, but fabulous reading.

Mr. Patterson knows his Chinese history, being a sinologist, and he gives us rich descriptions of modern and ancient China.

I suggest you start with The Jade Owl, where we meet all the major players, but The People's Treasure is not only the treasures offered, but the reading itself.

Bravo.  Also available on Kindle.

Ellen gives us a thoughtful insight into one of the "prolific" Mr.Patterson's novels and his detailed knowledge of China and it's history.As always Ellen George inspires us to look at the book in question with a better understanding of the story.
