Darkmouth (Darkmouth, Book 1)

 
9780007545612: Darkmouth (Darkmouth, Book 1)

A monstrously funny debut from the new star of middle-grade adventure.

There are towns where the border between our world and the world of monsters – properly called Legends – is thin. One of those towns is Darkmouth. There, our hero Finn is the son of the last remaining Legend Hunter – which means that one day soon he will be the last remaining Legend Hunter.

Except… he’s a bit rubbish at it. And in a spectacularly unfortunate coincidence, the terrifying leader of the monsters is in the midst of planning an all-out attack on earth… in Darkmouth.

Product Description:

A monstrously funny debut from the new star of middle-grade adventure.

THEY’RE COMING!

Legends (also known as terrifying, human-eating monsters) have invaded the town of Darkmouth and aim to conquer the world.

But don’t panic! The last remaining Legend Hunter - Finn - will protect us.

Finn: twelve-years-old, loves animals, not a natural fighter, but tries really, really hard, and we all know good intentions are the best weapons against a hungry Minotaur, right?

On second thoughts, panic.

PANIC NOW!

Review:

“Shane Hegarty explodes into the fantasy universe with Darkmouth. An incredible debut. 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

“A cracking debut novel, packed with wonderful characters and imaginative gadgets, and the fast-paced action is underpinned with a dry wit. The first in the series should win an enthusiastic readership impatient for the next title.” Daily Mail

“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). This fantasy adventure is a stunning debut.” Sarah Webb

“Spine-chilling totally awesome page turner of a book.” Charlotte, age 9 (Lovereading4kids)

“The perfect combination of comedy and adventure, which had me enthralled from the front cover to the final fight. A brilliant read!” Sam, age 11 (Lovereading4Kids)
