One of our New Gen Debuts of the Year 2011.

 

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2011.

This is an absolutely cracking debut fantasy novel.  Every teenager should make time for it as it's truly gripping and utterly original.  You'll find yourself totally immersed from page one in a completely new and original fantasy world of where the ruling class consists of werewolves who also happen to be shapeshifters.  Apart from a great story which builds into an incredible crescendo there are some very believable characters that you'll love and you'll hate but what's guaranteed is you'll remember them all and want to meet them again when the next in the series is published.  This is a debut novel from the BAFTA award winning designer of Bob the Builder among others but his first love has always been reading fantasy and horror.
