‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Face of the Shadow (The): (Part 3 of The Book of the Stars)
by Erik L'Homme
Age Range: 9-11
In the final part of Erik L'Homme's 'Book of the Stars' trilogy, the evil Shadow plots his next move furious that the Korrigans have allowed Robin Penmarch to escape from The Uncertain World. Now in possession of the Book of the Stars, all he needs to do is recapture the apprentice sorcerer and then he can carry out his plan to take over all three worlds – the Real World, that represents Western culture; the Uncertain World full of threatening, evil creatures, both human and magical and the Lost Isle, an historically regressive land cast adrift from the Read World. When the Shadow is successful in kidnapping Robin, Quadehur and his friends set off to the Uncertain World to rescue him from the Shadow’s tower in Yenibohor.
This final part of the trilogy follows Quadehar The Sorcerer and The Mystery of Lord Sha, both published by Chicken House.
