Product Description

Review

many comical elements and a touch of Mervyn Peake (The Children's Bookseller)

David Lee Stone is a wonderfully mad new talent to watch. He has a truly original comic voice and you won't forget his hysterically hopeless (rather than heroic) characters in a hurry! (Wendy Cooling)

[The Yowler Foul-up] is a zippy, highly efficient read with a natural, unforced wit and a matter-of-fact heartlessness that never seems mean-spirited. (SFX Magazine, August 2004)

Take a bucketful of Blackadder, mix in a dollop of Harry Potter, add a splash of Lord of the Rings, shake vigorously and you end up with this hilarious cocktail. (Flipside)

Book Description

The second instalment in this hilarious and exciting fantasy sequence from a fresh new talent.

Format: Hardcover
It's too good to describe, but I'll do my best!
David has a very imaginative mind to have created this book - and its even better than the first one (Ratastrophe Catastrophe) although it could really do with a dragon or two.
I hope all David's books are as good as this one.
Some of the great characters from the first book reappear in this one - Jimmy Quickstint, (ex) duke Modest and Pegrand. There are also a lot of new ones like Grab Dafisful and Obergarde the half vampire (or loftwing).
David's sense of humour comes through more than in the first book and the chapters are short but keep the pace of the book moving well.
I don't want to give the plot away - so you will have to read it yourself. I couldn't put it down once I started and read the whole thing in 2 days!
I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Having heard of the author by way of a reference to the late Sir Terry Pratchett, and learning that TP encouraged his writing, I bought and read the Illmoor Chronicles in one fell swoop. (So I'll use this for all of the books.) One of his critics describes him as TP's natural successor. This near heresy repelled and attracted me, but I'm glad I risked it, and I enjoyed the series. It is unpredictable but coherent and the characters seem sometimes to bend the plot to their own ends. And no, it's not as good as Terry was at his peak, but it's still damn good. I look forward to his development and future works, as I imagine TP would and possibly is.
