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.

Product Description

Review

Praise for Faerie Wars:

'A crossover title from which few readers of any age would wish to cross back. Brennan writes with all the dash of an Irish storyteller at the peak of his form. Inventive as Harry Potter, dark as Gormenghast and as intelligently probing as Philip Pullman, here is a title to brighten the dreariest of winter days' (Independent)

Praise for Faerie Lord:

'Will thrill die-hard fans or new readers alike . . . An intriguing fantasy mystery' (Big Issue)

'An interesting mixture of humour, baroque invention, and psychological tension . . . The imaginative elements are strong and the Faerie Realm vividly imagined' (School Librarian)

'Brennan's work is characterised by an exuberance of spirit and unlimited inventiveness' (School Librarian)

0 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback
An unusual title and one that I started worried about how it would turn out as jumping in on a series so far in, could leave the reader worrying about how much they've not only missed but also how much of the world building just won't make sense.

Unfortunately, for me, jumping in on the fifth book was just a bridge to far and whilst I could figure out what was happening within I felt that I'd lost a lot of not only the bigger picture but a lot of the delightful world building that you get when you start a series at the beginning. The book itself is well written, the characters felt like they were trying to break out and whilst the prose and pace were acceptable, I just couldn't wrap my head around the events and previous history that occurs. A shame but when I get the time I will go back and pick up the first title so that I can start where I should have done with this series.

Lord Black Hairstreak Strikes Again 1 April 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great addition to the series. I love how Lord Black Hairstreak continues to menace the royals even after his attempted suicide.
The series was better without this addition 30 April 2015
By That Girl Who Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Pretty terrible sequel. Henry feels very out of character, like all the character building that was done through out the series was completely disregarded. The daughter is whiny and annoying, a lot like Aisling. The only thing this book seems to do is fill the plot hole left when the series ended (Aisling having a key to get in the the faerie realm). If you're a die hard fan and need to see how that wraps up it's worth skimming. If you like the series how it ended, don't bother.

This is a very good read. I was hoping that it would be longer and maybe he will write some more sequels to this. I would very much like to see more of the Faerie Wars Chronicles.

Story follows the same characters as the other books with added bonus. It was enjoyable. If you like the others, you will like thus too.
