A fascinating story. It goes into a lot more detail than any of the strips ever did (as far as I know) - it starts with the birth of Kit, who will be the twenty-first Phantom. It follows his growing up in the jungle, then his education in America, and how he met Diana Palmer, and ends as he becomes the Phantom in truth. It's basically all back-story, with minor adventures and stories of old adventures mixed in, but it conveys a _lot_ about the Phantom line and the Twenty-first in particular. Very rich. Of course now I want to read more - and yay, I have the whole series now! I was afraid the book wouldn't be as good as I remembered - it's been a good few years since I read it last - but it drew me right in. A great story. ( )
