A Lord of the Rings for the 21st century. Only a lot shorter. And funnier. And completely different. Conor thought he was an average teenager. OK, so his father only had one hand, spoke to him in ancient languages and was a bit on the eccentric side but, other than that, life was fairly normal. Until, that is, two Celtic warriors on horseback and wearing full armour appear at his front door and try to kill him. After that, things get pretty weird. Shadowmagic is a fantasy adventure for young adults of all ages from 12 to 112. Written by one of the most popular magicians in the country it brings a fresh approach to the genre and will have a broad appeal beyond the fantasy sections.

Our customer reviews

My son and I loved the podcast. He's listened to it over and over. Bought the book for myself and my son has his own copy. **Thanks =)** This is a wonderful story that is witty enough for adults and clean enough for kids. Really fun. It is great as a chapter-a-night bedtime story or a hot chocolate and Kahlua-read all in one more
