1 thought on “Mysterium: 1: The Black Dragon”

  1. Eigentlich lese ich spannende Mystery-Thriller, auch aus dem Jugendbereich, sehr gerne. Das Setting in Hong-Kong sowie der Klappentext genau das versprochen.Leider konnte mich die Geschichte von Beginn an nur bedingt überzeugen. Ich habe mich sehr schwer getan in die Geschichte reinzufinden und das ist mir bis zum Ende leider auch nicht gelungen.Das Setting mit den Triaden, was zu Beginn wirklich interessant klang, war hier leider so gar nicht meins. Mein Interesse an der Handlung hielt sich in [...]

  2. The reason I read this book is because I got the chance to be present at an author talk by Julian Sedgwick, as well as being able to speak to him 1-1. We had some really interesting conversation and the speech was absolutely fantastic: I loved listening to him and just, in general, I loved the occasion. It was a lovely event and, during the event, I purchased this book. To date, Julian has written two trilogies: the Mysterium trilogy and the Ghosts of Shanghai trilogy. The Black Dragon is the fi [...]

  3. This book is a great mystery as Danny Woo delves deep into the past of his dead parents who were circus actors. At the same time his Aunt gets caught by a group of terrorist. One of his old friends from the circus to help him out and find his aunt. As he learns more about his family and the gang, more questions start to form in his head. Why did they kidnap his Aunt? And how is his family involved with the gang? Read this book to learn about his desperate chase after his Aunt and the amazing tri [...]

  4. Kurzbeschreibung:Abenteuer mit Sprengkraft!Geboren und aufgewachsen in der geheimnisvollen Zirkuswelt des MYSTERIUM kennt sich Danny mit Kartentricks, Hypnose und Entfesslungsnummern aus. Das Leben ist ein Zaubertrick.Doch als seine chinesische Mutter und sein britischer Vater bei einem rätselhaften Brand in ihrem Zirkuswagen ums Leben kommen, bricht für Danny eine Welt zusammen.

  5. Danny ist ein sehr pfiffiger und cleverer Protagonist, der für seine 12 Jahre ganz schön viel auf dem Kasten hat. Er stammt aus einer Zirkusfamilie, lebt aber seit einiger Zeit in einem Internat, da seine Eltern bei einem Brand ums Leben gekommen sind. Alle sagen, es war ein Unfall, doch Danny spürt, dass ihm seine ehemaligen Zirkusfreunde etwas verheimlichen. Die Schulferien verbringt Danny mit seiner Tante, der Journalistin Laura und seinem Zirkusfreund Major Zamora in Hongkong, wo Laura jo [...]

  6. Das Cover gefällt mir richtig gut. Es zeigt einen Jungen, der gerade dabei ist zu springen. Im Hintergrund kann man Häuser sehen - ich vermute die Häuser Hongkongs. Mysterium prangt wunderbar auffällig über dem Jungen und wie es sich gehört in Zirkusschrift.Schon auf den ersten Seiten wird es spannend in "Mysterium: Der schwarze Drache". An seiner Schule wird Danny erst von einem Jungen ein wenig aufgezogen, muss dann einen Zaubertrick vorstellen, weil er ja der komische Junge vom Zirkus i [...]

  7. Het Mysterium van Julian Sedgwick (10+)Stap in een wereld vol mysterie met de trilogie Het Mysterium. Het Mysterium : De zwarte draak is het eerste deel. Hoofdpersoon is Danny Woo. Zijn ouders zijn omgekomen door een brand. Ze waren eigenaar van het circus Het Mysterium. Zijn vader was een geweldige boeienkoning en zijn moeder deed een trapeze-act. Danny leerde veel van zijn ouders, zoals sloten openmaken, hypnose en trucs met kaarten. Maar nu is hij 12 en zijn zijn ouders dood en zit op hij een [...]

  8. The Black Dragon is the first book in the The Mysterium series for middle grade readers by Julian Sedgwick. Twelve-year-old Danny Woo is half-Chinese, half-British. His parents are performers in the Mysterium. Following their death in a mysterious fire, Danny is sent to live with his aunt Laura, an investigative journalist. When Danny's school is closed after an explosion, he joins Laura on a trip to Hong Kong. She is researching the Triad gangs; he is trying to understand more about his cultura [...]

  9. I felt the same way about The Black Dragon on the whole as I felt about its protagonist, Danny. I liked him enough, and thought he was funny enough, but he just didn't give me enough to keep me interested. I felt like his past was more interesting than his present which probably isn't a good thing. Danny grew up in a travelling Circus, The Mysterium, where his Dad was an escapologist and his mum a high wire acrobat. Prior to the events in The Black Dragon Danny's dad dies in an under-water trick [...]

  10. Als ich dieses Buch in der Hand hielt wusste ich noch nicht worauf ich mich einlasse. Klar hatte ich den Klappentext gelesen, aber so richtig wusste ich nicht was auf mich zukommen wird. Dieses Buch hat mich mit seinem Cover neugierig gemacht, das verdeckte Gesicht des Jungen weckte mein Interesse.Als ich zu lesen begann war es ein leichtes in die Handlung abzutauchen. Der Verlag gibt hier eine Leseempfehlung, die ich voll und ganz unterstütze. Jedoch ist es nicht nur ein Buch für die junge Ge [...]

  11. I recently met Julian Sedgwick, and felt terrible that I've read several by Marcus, but none by his (older!) brother. Completely different in genre and style, this is definitely going to appeal to an upper primary/lower secondary audience, particularly boys - circuses, escapes, chases, clues, gangs, mysteries.Danny Woo is an orphan, his parents were killed in a fire at the circus where they worked with their son a year ago. Danny is rather numb from the experience, and misses both his parents an [...]

  12. The story: When Danny's aunt is abducted in Hong Kong, it's up to Danny to find her. Little does he realize that hunting for a kidnapper will open up dark secrets in his own past, including the deaths of his circus-performer parents in a fire a year ago. Danny must use his own "magic" skills and his ability to think a problem through in order to figure out what's going on and who he can trust--and he'd better do it fast before the Black Dragon hunts him down and consumes him, too.NYP: Carolrhoda [...]

  13. Black dragon by Julian Sedgwick was a very good book. It was the first book in the serious and it was a very good book. Very exciting and adventures. First it started off with him at his school in a fight with some kids. Then a bomb went off while he was walking to class. His aunt comes to pick him up and then they go to Hong Kong. Then he meets his dwarf friend while his aunt was doing a story on some guys. In the end he figures out they wanted him dead because he was going to be a lethal threa [...]

  14. A real action packed adventure story! I loved the characters, and thought the circus-related aspects that were scattered throughout made it stand apart from other books. The plot was interesting, though the ending seemed very rushed to me. I also felt that not enough was explained; I understand there will be sequels, but too much was left open-ended. However, it was enjoyable and I look forward to seeing where the series goes.

  15. I'm not entirely familiar with Cantonese but the linguistics here doesn't feel awkward at all. Quite realistic in fact, with some stumbles, but it works. The story, however, is set up for a trilogy. I had hope for some kind of closure but it's mostly a wild goose chase with little result. The up side is being able to read about Danny's tricks, which was what I expected from a book circling around circus. ;)

  16. I liked the middle and end of the book, but the beginning was so boring. I knew the beginning is usually boring so I decided to keep pushing through it. Once I got in like 50 pages in it started to get interesting, it was just a straight line to a fun book. I would've gave it a five if it weren't for the bad beginning.

  17. Collision of all the exoticism of circus life with triads in Hong Kong, a boy trying to find out what really happened to his parents, loads of excitement and with a satisfying take on how to get the most out of life. I really want to read volume 2 now!

  18. Yes! More please! Great adventurous plot and fun characters. Like the setting too, you don't see a place like Hong Kong in books enough. First part of a trilogy and I'm very interested to read parts two and three.

  19. simplistic chapter headings, improved towards the end of the book. It didn't seem to have a definite conclusion. Maybe Julian Sedgwick intends to run another story from the end of the book.

  20. Danny needs to save his Aunt and find out what happened to his parents all while not loosing his own life.

  21. Especially cool 'cause it's set in Hong Kong, my home town! Great to see that Hong Kong is being exposed and appreciated more and more! Looking forward to the next adventure in this series!

  22. Loved it! Young escape artist who lost both his parents travels with his aunt after an explosion at school: kidnapping, great escapes and mysterious characters.
