Shamer's War (The) Shamer Chronicles Book 4
by Lene Kaaberbol
Age Range: 12+
In the final book in the ‘Shamer Chronicles’, The Shamer’s War sees Davin and Dina thrown into a whirlwind adventure as they try to stop their friend Nico from following his destiny. Both are caught up in Nico’s quest to take revenge on Drakon. War becomes inevitable as the clans join forces with Nico to rid themselves of the deadliest of foes. Will Dina’s shamer’s gift bring defeat to Nico’s deadliest enemy?
Award-winning Danish author Lene Kaaberbøl is an excellent storyteller and has translated her own work into effortless English. The Shamer novels have created an exciting world, on the edge of civilisation, magic and mystery as they follow the lives of the Tonerre family who are constantly pitched into danger and adventure. The harsh life of the Highlands with its rival clans and villains shows a world where those that manipulate the truth are afraid of the gifted few that can see the truth and are able to expose them.
First published in English over fifteen years ago it’s fantastic to see them back in print again in a brand new edition by Pushkin Children’s.
Other titles in ‘The Shamer Chronicles’ (2019) are: The Shamer’s Daughter; The Shamer’s Signet; The Serpent Gift. Further books by Kaaberbøl available in English are: Silverhorse (2008); Midnight (2009) Macmillan; the 'Wildwitch' series – Wildwitch Wildfire; Wildwitch Oblivion; Wildwitch Life Stealer and Wildwitch Bloodling.
