Overview

Panic fills the streets of London on a night in 1756 when the earth suddenly lurches forward and starts spinning out of control. Within moments, eleven days and nights flash through the sky, finally leaving the city in total darkness. Is the end of the world at hand? Is there any hope left? "And many will die from its bitterness." "Could we ask the book what will happen to us?" Agetta asked. "It would probably lie to you," Tegatus said. "It was written by the greatest liar of them all. The father of lies scrawled on every page and has led the world in a dance ever since. You see, child, your kind is obsessed by secret knowledge because they think it brings the power to influence their lives. Give man a secret, write it in some ancient language, and bind it in an old book. Then tell him that it is from another world and if used in the right way will brig him wealth and power, and you the the Nemorensis." Praise for Shadowmancer and Wormwood " Shadowmancer] goes where 'Potter' didn't, tapping into spiritual themes that credit God as the force of all good. -Newsweek, March 29, 2004 " Wormwood] is breathtaking in scope.It's an extraordinary achievement told by.a master storyteller.The book is, quite simply, marvelous." -The Guardian (London) "More supernatural shenanigans from the Shadowmancer man- this is even better." -The Independent (London)
