The Lovereading4Kids comment

A unique blend of fantasy and thriller and myths and legends but grounded firmly in real present-day life. It was winner of the 2000 Blue Peter Award 'book i couldn't put down category'. With twists and turns virtually on every page you're left gasping for breath but wanting more.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

Synopsis

Shadow of the Minotaur by Alan Gibbons

For Phoenix it's easy. He hates his new school where he is bullied. He's embarrassed by his computer geek dad. But when he logs onto The Legendeer, the computer game his dad is working on, he can be a hero. The trouble is it turns out The Legendeer is more than just a game. It has a mind of its own. Play it if you dare.
