Read full description of the books Book of Oceans:Diadem #8: Book of Oceans, by John Peel
Score and Pixel are two boys trapped between feuding females, and they definitely need a break. With Oracle's help, they convince Helaine and Jenna that it's time to take a vacation, and the four set off for Brine. A planet made up of mostly oceans, Brine seems like the perfect world for a peaceful getaway...until their vacation is interrupted by pirates!
When Pixel and Jenna taken captive, Score must work with Helaine to rescue the other magic users. But Helaine isn't a fan of Jenna, since Helaine was a noble and Jenna a peasant on their old homeworld. Peel uses the the girls to get young readers to think about social class prejudices. With an interesting mix of species, including living flames and human-shaped dolphins, "Book of Oceans" is another fun installment in the Diadem series, and one I rather enjoyed.
Finally, readers are clued into the method behind Oracle's madness. Always popping up to send the friends into trouble, Oracle is actually trying to prevent the three from becoming the evil forms of themselves they defeated in previous Diadem books. The author adds to Oracle's mystery, and I'm eager to learn more. I also liked Jenna more in this book, and didn't begrudge Peel adding in another main character so far into the series.
Read information about the authorJohn Peel is the author of Doctor Who books and comic strips. Notably, he wrote the first original Doctor Who novel, Timewyrm: Genesys, to launch the Virgin New Adventures line. In the early 1990s he was commissioned by Target Books to write novelisations of several key Terry Nation Dalek stories of the 1960s after the rights were finally worked out. He later wrote several more original Daleks novels.
He has the distinction of being one of only three authors credited on a Target novelisation who had not either written a story for the TV series or been a part of the production team (the others were Nigel Robinson and Alison Bingeman).
Outside of Doctor Who, Peel has also written novels for the Star Trek franchise. Under the pseudonym "John Vincent", he wrote novelisations based upon episodes of the 1990s TV series James Bond Jr..
