Worlds Explode (Darkmouth, Book 2)

9780007545742: Worlds Explode (Darkmouth, Book 2)

The second book in the monstrously funny and action-packed new series: Darkmouth. It’s going to be legendary.

The adventures of the most unfortunate Legend Hunter ever to don fighting armour and pick up a Dessicator continue…

On a list of things Finn never thought he'd wish for, a gateway bursting open in Darkmouth was right up there. But that's about his only hope for finding his missing father. He's searched for a map, he's followed Steve into dead ends, but found nothing. And he's still got homework to do.

But soon Finn and Emmie must face bizarre Legends, a ravenous world and a face from the past as they go where no Legend Hunter has gone before. Or, at least, where no legend Hunter has gone before and returned with their limbs in the correct order.

Product Description:

The world needed a hero. Sadly, what it got was Finn.

The adventures of the most unfortunate Legend Hunter ever to don fighting armour and pick up a Dessicator continue in this, the second book in the DARKMOUTH sequence – as Finn attempts to find the map that might rescue his father from the Infested Side.

From astounding new author Shane Hegarty, this laugh-out-loud and quite literally Legendary series continues to mark out Ireland as the home of funny fantasy, and HarperCollins as the home of Irish talent…


“Hilarious and exciting. Terrifying and heart-stopping. Everything a great fantasy series should be. The next big thing is here.” Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl

“Hegarty writes surely, unpretentiously and amusingly, drawing up beguiling characters and constructing a plot which simply skips along. Great for primary school children studying myths and legends.” The Times

“Hegarty understands the importance of humour for young readers. One of the great pleasures of being scared is the release of laughter that comes afterwards, and Darkmouth is peppered with sly, gentle wit.” The Irish Times

“Believe the hype. The relationship between the young hero and his father is touching and real. There are touches of Ghostbusters, along with some Bond-like gadgets, plus a rather Dickensian setting (the mist-swirling town of Darkmouth). A stunning fantasy adventure.” Sarah Webb
