PRAISE FOR THE SERIES
Retired primary school principal John Barwick has built a refreshingly different world that is a million miles away from the regular lives of screen addicted 10-13 year olds. Fans of middle grade fantasy series like Emily Rodda’s Deltora Quest will enjoy being drawn into this world of castles, ships, horses, sorcerers, danger, magic and friendship. Averil is a likeable character whose bravery, tenacity and resourcefulness make her an excellent role model who will appeal to young girls and boys alike.
