The final action-packed instalment to the Tales of Fayt trilogy that began with The Demon’s Watch. Readers will not be disappointed, though they really do need to read the adventures from their start. In this way they will meet all the important characters, learn their characters and understand their motives. They will also be able to savour the setting – the City of Fayt where goblins, hobgoblins, faery folk and trolls, to name but a few, live happily with humans, the Ebony Sea peopled by fearsome (they are – meet them in book two, The Goblin’s Gift) merfolk, and Azurmouth, the City of Light ruled by the truly sinister Duke of Garran. The action is non-stop, the twists and turns in the plot more convoluted than any maze. However, a lively style, dramatic incident and engaging characters will keep the reader glued to the page. This series does not pretend to be anything other than it is; a fast-paced enjoyable fantasy for good KS2/KS3 readers designed to keep the pages turning.
