A story of knights and gods, a quest that takes its characters through wild and strange landscapes, a tale of courage and loyalty in the face of terrifying opponents, The King’s Revenge brings Philip Womack’s much lauded Darkening Path trilogy to a thrilling conclusion (though for those who haven’t read the preceding books, it’s a satisfying adventure in its own right). Reunited with their sister and brother, friends Simon and Flora face one final challenge in the world of the Broken King, but it’s their most difficult yet; fail, and everything in the kingdom will die. As they set off on their quest, there’s a wonderful sense of comradeship. The world Womack creates rings with echoes of favourite myth and history, but is unique to his vision. The writing is excellent, this is children’s fantasy of the highest order. Perfect for fans of T H White’s The Once and Future King, or Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising sequence. ~ Andrea Reece The Darkening Path series : The Broken King The King's Shadow The King's Revenge

In this sequel to the highly praised The Broken King , Philip Wormack continues to entrance his readers. ~ Julia Eccleshare
