The final book in the award-winning Knights of the Borrowed Dark trilogy, perfect for fans of Skulduggery Pleasant. 'You have no idea what real war is . . . but I'm afraid you're going to find out.' There's nothing like an apocalypse to kick off the school year. Denizen Hardwick has travelled to Daybreak, the ancestral home of the Order of the Borrowed Dark, to continue his training as a knight. But lessons have barely begun before an unexpected arrival appears with news that throws the fortress into uproar. The Endless King has fallen, his dark realm rising in a brutal civil war. When the conflict strikes closer to home, Denizen and his friends face their greatest challenge yet. For if Daybreak falls, so does the world . . . 'Action-packed, atmospheric and powerfully imagined' - Sunday Times
One of our Books of the Year 2016 | April 2016 Book of the Month Move over Harry Potter, there’s a new orphan on the block, ready to take on monsters and stand up for what’s right and decent. Until he’s 13, Denizen Hardwick (full marks to the author for the name!) has led a pretty miserable life in the gloomy Crosscaper Orphanage. A sceptic, Denizen is not expecting to be summoned to spend time with the aunt he never knew he had, but more surprises are instore: his aunt is part of a team of knights responsible for protecting the world from monsters, and Denizen is expected to sign up with them too. Oozing atmosphere, peppered with humour and featuring some real edge-of-the-seat moments (one starring Denizen’s friend Simon is particularly scary) this is excellent fantasy adventure and distinguished by fine, intelligent writing. This will be enjoyed by fans of Derek Landy, Eoin Colfer and Jonathan Stroud while Sean Hegarty’s Darkmouth books are good boy versus monsters too. ~ Andrea Reece
