In this fantasy adventure, Fletcher and Scoop are Apprentice Adventurers from the ancient establishment of Blotting's Academy on Fullstop Island. This is the place where all story characters are trained. The trouble is, they can't remember how they got there. It's the first day of term, but the two apprentices soon realise something is wrong. Things are going missing, including their own memories, and Scoop has the unsettling feeling that something is creeping in the shadows. As the children search for answers, they become entangled with the life of the Storyteller, the islands creator and king. They journey to his wedding banquet and find themselves uncovering a hidden past. What is their connection to this mysterious man? And is there more to him than meets the eye?

About the Author
Rise of the Shadow Stealers is an exciting re-enactment of the age-old conflict between good and evil...Like all the best stories, it can be read on different levels...at times there are echoes of C.S.Lewis. Young people and adults alike will be taken up by the tension of what will happen to the Apprentice Adventurers...A thoroughly absorbing read. --Rt Revd John Packer
