Summary

Moll Pecksniff and her friends are living as outlaws in a secret cave by the sea, desperate to stay hidden from the Shadowmasks. But further along the coast lies the Amulet of Truth, the only thing powerful enough to force the Shadowmasks back and contain their dark magic. So, together with Gryff, the wildcat that’s always by her side, and her best friends, Alfie and Sid, Moll must sneak past smugglers, outwit mer creatures and crack secret codes to save the Old Magic.

With more at stake than ever before and the dark magic rising fast, can Moll and her friends stop the Shadowmasks before it’s too late?

Catapult into this gripping adventure from the author of Sky Song, perfect for fans of J.K. Rowling, Michelle Harrison and Eva Ibbotson.

So Original!

I'm an adult listening to this wonderful children's series. More like a series for the kids in middle school, at least 10 and up.
I'm continuously surprised by all the fresh ideas that make this story so appealing.
So often in adult or children's stories you will pick up on an idea or theme that has been used times before, but an author is presenting in a new way.
That is in no way the case in The Shadow Keeper or it's predecessor in this series.
Nicky Diss, the narrator, does a perfect job for all of the voices with great success. A great character with lisp and an excellent job of narrating a wild cat with all of the right sounds.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some edge of there seat fantasy excitement without getting into R rated material.
