The Lovereading4Kids comment
A rebellious teenager finds himself transported to another world and there he finds himself forced to go on a perilous journey with a group of strikingly different characters including a speaking wolf. It's a fantasy that weaves the fabric of well-loved stories into an epic adventure that will introduce you to some characters that you will love and others that will put such cold fear into your bones that you feel the world might end. Full of good and evil, bravery and fearfulness, it's a fantasy sequence for young people written on a grand scale that pays homage to Tolkien in its sweeping invention. The Shadow of Malabron is a debut novel and the first book in The Perilous Realm sequence.
A message from the author:
'The Perilous Realm is not just a world with stories in it. This world is Story. It is the place that all of the tales in our world come from. Whatever you might find in a story, you will find here. Adventures, strange encounters, riddles. Heroes and monsters. Bravery, goodness and terrible evil. And many other things that have yet no name in our world.'
The Shadow of Malabron by Thomas Wharton
Long ago, Malabron the Night King tried to turn all stories into one – his story, a nightmare of absolute power. But when Will, a rebellious teenager, stumbles from the present into the realm where stories come from, he is caught up in Malabron’s evil designs. Aided by some of the story folk – including the feisty Rowen, her grandfather Penrose (a loremaster) and Shade, the laconic but loyal wolf – Will must combat a host of perils, if he is ever to find the gateless gate that will take him home.
