The Spellcoats

Written by Diana Wynne Jones

Part of the The Dalemark Quartet Series

The Spellcoats Synopsis

The third book in the epic fantasy-adventure series from `the Godmother of Fantasy', Diana Wynne Jones. Now back in print! `I had not seen how they hated us till I heard them shout. It was terrible.' Tanaqui and her family have always known they were somehow different from the other villagers. But when the great floods come and they are driven from their home, they begin to realise the part they must play in the destiny of the land. As Tanaqui weaves the story of their frightening journey to the sea and the terrifying, powerful evil of the mage Kankredin, she realises the desperate need to understand the meaning of it all. Can she fit the pieces of the puzzle together in time to halt Kankredin's destruction?

The Spellcoats Press Reviews

PRAISE FOR DIANA WYNNE JONES: ...Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones's most outrageous plots to her readers' hopes and fears... Publishers Weekly The best writer of magic there is Neil Gaiman Truly magical - guaranteed to leave you gasping - even hotter than Potter The Bookseller PRAISE FOR HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE: Imaginative and terribly funny Michael Morpurgo The Telegraph - 100 Best Books a Child Should Read Wit and humor glint from the pages The Horn Book
