The author has seamlessly delivered a wonderful mix of fantasy and reality in this the second of the Eidolon trilogy. Trolls, giants and goblins alongside the evil Dodman are laying waste to this magical world and it’s up to Iggy and Ben to save it once more and to rescue the daughter of the rightful Queen of Eidolon. Secret Country is the first in the trilogy and Dragon’s Fire is the final one.

Synopsis

The Shadow World by Jane Johnson

The second book of the three part Eidolon Chronicles series that includes The Secret Country, The Shadow World, and Dragon's Fire. The Dodman has begun his reign of terror in Eidolon. Amassing an army of trolls and giants, ghost-dogs and goblins, he is determined to lay waste to the magical Secret Country - and destroy its Queen forever. Now Isadora must return to her world, leaving her family behind, and lead her people against the evil Dodman. Horrified at being left behind, Ellie follows her mother to Eidolon - and walks straight into danger. Captured and held hostage by the Dodman, only Ben and Iggy can save her and protect the Secret Country from becoming enslaved once more.
