In this fantasy adventure, Fletcher and Scoop are Apprentice Adventurers from the ancient establishment of Blotting's Academy on Fullstop Island. This is the place where all story characters are trained. The trouble is, they can't remember how they got there. It's the first day of term, but the two apprentices soon realise something is wrong. Things are going missing, including their own memories, and Scoop has the unsettling feeling that something is creeping in the shadows. As the children search for answers, they become entangled with the life of the Storyteller, the islands creator and king. They journey to his wedding banquet and find themselves uncovering a hidden past. What is their connection to this mysterious man? And is there more to him than meets the eye?

Review:

Rise of the Shadow Stealers is an exciting re-enactment of the age-old conflict between good and evil...Like all the best stories, it can be read on different levels...at times there are echoes of C.S.Lewis. Young people and adults alike will be taken up by the tension of what will happen to the Apprentice Adventurers...A thoroughly absorbing read.--Rt. Revd. John Packer

About the Author:

Born in East London, Daniel now lives in Knaresborough, Yorkshire, in a house built of stones from the town's ruined castle.

"I love the mystery of this little town," Daniel says. "As I walk its ancient marketplace, passing leaning shops and jumbled pubs, it feels as if my characters might leap out from every corner!"

Daniel particularly likes to write by the river, where the famous prophetess, Mother Shipton once lived.

"The river is a thin place, a liminal space where conscious and unconscious meet. I find it very creative."

As well as being an author, Daniel works in the field of performance. Currently, he is Artistic Director of Suitcase and Spectacles Children's Theatre, and is part of the artistic direction team for Pointed Arrow Performance. He has led numerous community theatre projects that explore how stories shape us and what mark they leave on the places we live.

Daniel is interested in exploring philosophical and spiritual questions in fun and engaging ways that inspire children to think and to wonder.
