From the back cover:
Dad's gone, the well's dried up and the farm is failing - and Mum seems to be losing her mind. Now Carys is to be sent away to live with relatives she's never even met. Can life get any worse? But all is not what it seems. Carys's life has a purpose: she is the final piece in the Legend of Aranrhod... Carys's destiny was forged centuries ago when a powerful wizard cast a spell to protect the world from demons. With the demons now gaining power and desperate to take control, Carys and her friends Zach (the brainy one), Beth (the funny one) and Suzy (the dog) find themselves in a dramatic race against time that will test their faith and courage to the limit. Somehow they must solve the wizard's riddle and end the quest before the demons beat them to it, otherwise the world is doomed. But those demons will stop at nothing to get what they want.
The Legend Of Aranrhod is a roller-coaster journey of suspense, danger, deceit - oh, and terrible jokes! - with an incredible climax that will leave you breathless. Do you believe in magic? Real magic? Don't ask. Just believe.Revue de presse :
Here is a book you will not want to put down. An ingenious and gripping story, well told and written with humour. It's a fantasy in the genre of C.S. Lewis and Susan Cooper, with teenagers caught up in a battle against the forces of evil in a desperate bid to find the magical rod used by Aaron in biblical times. The theme may be a well tried one but the difference is these are modern teenagers, texting, using their laptops, taking digital photos, telling bad jokes - if you're of their age, you'll identify with them. But you don't have to be a teenager to enjoy the book - I'm in my sixties and thought it a great read. The setting of much of the novel, in and around Worcester cathedral, is unusual, but the author uses his experience as a family man and parish priest to paint an amusing and slightly quirky scene. There is some delightful humour around the idea that the joy and exuberance of youth is an antidote to demons of any form. (Michael Fleetwood) --Michael Fleetwood
