Decimus Rex has been wounded - badly! Gladius goes in search of help, but when he returns, Decimus has disappeared. There's no other thing for it, the friends have to return to the Winter Palace and try to find and rescue Decimus. But there is more than one surprise in store...
David Grimstone was born in Margate on 25th January, 1978. He has written twenty-five books, some under his own name (David Lee Stone) but most under the 'David Grimstone' pen-name. His work has been published in many countries and translated into several different languages, by publishers including Disney (US), Penguin (US), Sony (Japan), Buena Vista (Italy) and Hodder (UK).
His short stories have appeared in professional anthologies (with Terry Pratchett and Tom Sharpe), magazines and fanzines. He has also written colour-text for Games Workshop's Citadel Journal, and review columns for SFX and Interzone. You can find some of these on Amazon, written under names that include David Lee Stone, David L. Stone and Simiyon Moonseed.
David attended Holy Trinity Primary school in Ramsgate and St. George's Foundation school in Broadstairs, before variously becoming a ghost-hunter (rubbish), an estate agent (worse), an amateur wizard (fun), an assistant manager at a video superstore (SO much fun) and - finally - a full-time author.
David lives in Kent with his wife and son, and loves to read fan-mail.....if readers ever remember to send him any. He owns the media publisher Dead Guys Shoe Ltd.
