2nd in the Truth Sayer Series: A joyful and lighthearted fantasy series tells the story of Nian, a boy with a destiny. Taken to the House of Truth to learn the necessary skills to becoming a Lord of the Truth, Nian realises that is not what he wants to be doing. Stepping into another world to escape, he finds himself surrounded by things he doesn't understand especially when it comes to operating a toaster.

Nian's been studying with the Lords for years and he is by far the most powerful person in the House but even he doesn't have the power to get rid of the owlman. What does it want? And how can it be stopped before it causes too much damage?

To read the books in order start with The Truth Sayer, then read March of the Owlmen and finish with the rip-roaring climax Plague of Mondays.

Synopsis

The Truth Sayer: March of the Owlmen by Sally Prue

It's all change in the House of Truth. The ancient power of the House has been swept away, and now there's a new energy about the place. For the first time in years there are lots of new boys arriving to study with the Lords. It's all very exciting - but Nian, the Truth Sayer, feels stifled. He's by far the most powerful person in the House, but what good is that? Having great powers isn't easy - especially when they can be so very very dangerous...Then the owlman arrives. It's terrifying, and even Nian can't make it go away. Who sent it? What does it want? And can it be stopped before it destroys everyone in the House?
