Book Description

THE DAY THAT TRAGEDY STRUCK

"Gasping back tears of horror and anger, Varren shimmied his way down the well. In the circle of light above his head three ugly, scarred, war-bitten faces appeared, staring down at him. One of them was readying his crossbow. Varren released his grip and fell straight down into the water. A crossbow quarrel whooshed into the water next to him. He hauled himself out, and into a side tunnel just above the water level. He’d used this way in and out of the castle for years. He hurried off down the tunnel, the sounds of battle fading away behind him..."

From acclaimed children’s fantasy author Jamie Thomson comes the first in a thrilling new series of adventure novels for 8-12 year olds.

More About the Author


Winner of the Roald Dahl 2012 Funny Prize!

Here's the little author biography for my latest series, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years, and Dark Lord: A Fiend in Need:

'Jamie Thomson is the minion and slave of the Dark Lord, Dirk Lloyd. Jamie has been writing books, comics and computer games for his Dark Master for many years now. He lives in the dungeons below his Master's Iron Tower, chained to a desk, where he spends every day writing for his overlord. Or else.'

The Dark Lord series is a comedic fantasy about a Dark Lord trapped in the body of a human boy here in modern day earth. Bit like my own life, really. The first book, Dark Lord: the Teenage Years has won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012, which is awesomely cool!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable story. 22 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are familiar with the fables lands game books you will enjoy this book. However you don't need knowledge of the Fabled Lands world to follow the story. It's is obviously written with children in mind but I am 30 and i enjoyed it a lot. The story moves along quickly and doesn't get boring at any points. You could well finish this book in one sitting as it isn't very long but given the current sale price it is incredibly good value for money. I would grab it while it's at such a low price, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Breathless Rush, an Exciting Tale 24 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
It took me a while to figure out what it was that I liked so much about this book, but I think I have it now. It reads like a tale that is being told by an enthusiastic story-teller. It is not literary or writerly, but feels like a transcript of an actual spoken story. As you read you can almost see an accomplished troubadour stalking around a hushed pub room as he spins and embroiders his tale.

This is not an easy thing to do. Usually that sort of effect is marred by preciousness, or a lack of command of tone or detail. But in this story the tone is informal but consistent, and atmosphere is not sacrificed in service of advancing the plot. We have briefly sketched but believable characters. We have some exposition, but in service of brevity and clarity. We have a hero with more depth and character than is usually encountered in such middle grade fare. We have lofty themes and low humor, and adventure. We have energy.

I never like it when books are described as appropriate for "reluctant readers", because that's often shorthand for low-brow or fart based or insultingly simple. But, this book seems to be the type of book that would grab and carry any reader, involve him or her, and wrap up with a flourish. That's pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Prince 6 April 2015

The Lost Prince is a exciting tale of adventure and revenge against an evil knight. The book is set in the world of Fabel Lands (Which I would recommend to any choose your own path books.) An easy to read, atmospheric adventure. (By Finlay aged 11)
