More About the Author

Jon Mayhew hails from the misty marshes of Wirral,in the UK, described as a haunt of 'godless people' even in the days of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight! He spent most of his childhood playing in the ruins of a Victorian zoo and when he wasn't doing that, he was writing or telling stories. He loves traditional music and running too... which you'd realise is a useful combination if you'd heard him play the mandolin.

His first book, "Mortlock," was published by Bloomsbury in April 2010 and he is currently engaged in selling it by hand at any school, bookshop, folk festival, flower show, museum that'll have him.

Jon's second book for Bloomsbury, The Demon Collector is published in March 2011.

Product Description

Review

Praise for Mortlock:

A macabre, darkly humorous adventure peppered with deadly thrills. A dazzling debut

(Guardian)

Praise for The Demon Collector:

Mortlock was a striking debut . . . it created a creepy atmosphere that won much praise. The Demon Collector is equally full of well-written suspense but far funnier, with a strong filmic element that fans of Joseph Delaney's Spooks Apprentice and Anthony McGowan's Hellbent will lap up

(Amanda Craig, The Times)

Book Description

Arabian Nights meets Indiana Jones. A superlative adventure packed with vengeful Djinni, flying carpets and a breathtaking race to save mankind

"With Wishing Comes Grieving" (Traditional Proverb)
Neccessity Bonehill's uncle sent her a bottle, along with instructions to never, ever open it.
Only she did.
What Ness didn't know is that her uncle and six others summoned a djinn. And when she opened that bottle, she unleashed it on the world.
She has only seven days to repair her mistake. If she doesn't manage to get the djinn back in the bottle, he will destroy the world Ness knows...
Can she succeed? How can one girl, her new-found friend Azuli and an untameable flying carpet unravel the conspiracy and destroy one of the most powerful magical beings - the last djinn Zaakiel...? Before he carries out his final, destructive wish...?
I love the Arabian Nights, the Victorian era and djinn - so this book was right up my alley! I found out only after reading this that it is the third in a series set in the same world. As I adore this world and can't wait to dive right back in, I'll be getting my hands on those two books ASAP! I loved all the characters, the world, the magic, the writing, the setting, the... well, everything! An incredible book that left me wanting more!
Ness was amazingly kickbutt and could totally hold her own! To begin with she was a real piece of work - a bully - but I loved how she grew and developed. She was just so alone, so young despite her toughness. And as stubborn as a mule! I felt so sorry for her - her name said it all "Neccessity". No wonder she didn't feel loved.
Azuli was brave, impulsive and dedicated. He just wanted to prove he was worthy, to be accepted as a Lashkar. He was kinda withdrawn to begin with, but I quickly came to love him! He was also a teeny bit arrogant - but Ness soon knocked that out of him!

Having bought this book for my 11 year old son, I can only report his comments.

My son had already read "Mortlock" and "The Demon Collector" by the same author, after I had met Jon Mayhew at a promotional book signing in Chester. My son loved both of them, so I had no hesitation in buying this third offering once it became available. It seems from my son's feedback that it was okay, but not read with the same enthusiasm that he showed for the previous two books.

Format: Paperback
Jon Mayhew's third novel is another thoroughly enjoyable trip into the fictional, supernatural past. Starring Necessity 'Ness' Bonehill, a djinn who has grown resentful of his greedy human masters, a family curse and a host of Lashkars, The Bonehill Curse is a spooky delight, and is highly recommended to fans of Mortlock and The Demon Collector as well as those who haven't had the spine tingling pleasure of reading Mayhew's novels yet!
