Mystery of Lord Sha (The): (Part 2 of The Book of the Stars)
by Erik L'Homme
Age Range: 9-11
The Mysteries of Lord Sha is the second book in the Trilogy ‘The Book of the Stars' series which follows the adventures of the gifted 13-year-old apprentice sorcerer Robin Penmarch who has been taught by the eminent sorcerer Quadehar.
Set on the Lost Isle, a magical land cast adrift from the Real World long ago. Robin has the ability to travel between these worlds, and to the ‘Uncertain world', a threatening world of evil creatures, both human and magical, who in turn can stray into Robin’s world.
When the guild (sorcerer's federation) led by Quadehar travels to the ‘Uncertain World’ and attacks the Dark Lord, Robin is locked up in an old monastery for his own safety. Whilst the Sorcerers are getting massacred, Robin discovers a startling truth about his own past.
These books are exciting and well written and have found an enthusiastic audience in France. The Face of the Shadow is the final part of the trilogy.
