Summary

From the best-selling author of How to Train Your Dragon comes an exciting high-adventure series - set in an ancient, magical time full of Wizards, Warriors, Giants and Sprites. 

This was once the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who had been taught since birth to hate each other like poison. 

But now, the boy Wizard and girl Warrior have been brought together in the Badwoods, and they have witnessed the shocking consequences of the Stone That Takes Away Magic. They will need to cast aside their differences once more - for an Evil Spell has broken free. 

It's up to Xar and Wish to find the ingredients. But it means entering the Druids Castle unannounced....

Perfect for boys and girls who love fantasy adventure.

I didn’t want the story to end!

Such a brilliant second story following Wish and Xar’s adventures.

Original, unpredictable storyline, superbly narrated and such brilliant characters.

Don’t think of this as a teenagers’ book. It has all the classic elements to stand the test of time, and was hugely enjoyed by me, an adult!
