The Lovereading comment:
An inventive, dark and lyrically-told fantasy thriller by first-time novelist Philip Womack.  Truly compelling, I was utterly transfixed at the story of Edward, a 12 year old boy who, through an ancient book shrouded in a brooding curse that is unearthed, is drawn into parallel worlds of good and evil where the walls in between are weakening and where terror and destruction are all around. Only Edward can lay to rest the dark forces and demons of the past.



The Other Book by Philip Womack
As 12-year-old Edward Pollock starts to turn the pages of an ancient cursed book, he is drawn into a place where dark forces imperil charmed lands. Soon Edward begins to realise that malicious powers are at play. The wall between man and ghost is weakening, and the world beyond is threatening great fear and destruction.
