More About the Author

A professional writer whose work has appeared in more than fifty countries, Herbie Brennan is enjoyed by children and adults alike -- sales of his books already exceed 8 million copies worldwide.

Herbie has an well-established career writing for the children's market -- from picture books to teenage fiction, from game books to school curriculum non-fiction. His keen eye for novelty, both in technology and market development, made him among the very first writers to create adventure gamebooks and his GrailQuest series was an international bestseller.

His teenage novel, Faerie Wars, also rocketed to international success, achieving best-seller status in more than 20 overseas editions, and was voted No 1 Top Ten Teenage Pick in the United States and listed as a New York Times Best Seller title.

Equally prolific in the adult market, Herbie has a powerful reputation for challenging conventional assumptions with penetrating intelligence and a clear, easy style. This is reflected in his interests, which range from transpersonal psychology, spirituality, reincarnation and psychical research to comparative religion and quantum physics. His reappraisal of ancient history has stirred lively debate on TV and radio as well as in the Press. He broadcasts and lectures regularly throughout the UK and Ireland and was recently awarded a Masters degree in Western Esotericism by Exeter University.

Herbie became interested in mysticism as a child and was studying books on the subject virtually from the time he was able to read. He found himself pursuing several unorthodox lines of research, including hypnosis, and actually hypnotised his first subject -- a school friend -- at the age of nine!

He began a journalistic career at eighteen and at twenty-four became the youngest newspaper editor in his native Ireland. His early career path included magazine work, hypnotherapy, counselling, advertising and marketing.

His first book, Astral Doorways, an exploration of out-of-body experience, became a specialist best-seller and went on to become a classic in its field -- it is still in print some thirty-five years on. The book was written following a series of personal OOBEs when Herbie was in his twenties.

In his mid twenties, Herbie had his first novel published, an historical romance brought out by Doubleday in New York. At the age of thirty he decided to devote most of his time to writing and has since gone on to produce more than 110 books, many of them international best-sellers.

When he can be persuaded to take a break from his writing, Herbie gives lectures and seminars, which have included modules on reincarnation research, the astral plane, dreamwork, healing, spiritual development, psychical research, quantum physics and magical training..

With a background that includes writing for radio, the creation of boxed games and computer software, perhaps his greatest strength lies in the realm ideas.

Format: Hardcover
Sequels have always been my favourite types of books, and this one is excellent! With the resurrection of Pyrgus and Holly Blue's father, the Faeries of the Night seem poised to take over all the Realm - and who better to help save it than Henry Atherton?
While the book is very exciting from start to finish, the most hilarious chapters are those featuring Brimstone and Chalkhill, who, between them, completely steal the show. It was also nice to read a book in which one of the main characters makes a mistake so huge no-one can call that person anything other than an idiot, instead of them all being perfect all the time.
The only thing that annoyed me slightly was Henry's habit of getting into impossible situations because he was just not thinking - I thought he was supposed to be intelligent?
Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book immensely!

This follows on from book 1, which you don't need to read but sets the scene and without it may be a bit confusing. I think they are great stories, if you like fantasy. Great for adults and teenagers
