Meet Fergal the Second, nicknamed ‘two’. Or ‘Doe’, in his own language. He can do magic. But, for the moment, he’s forgotten where he’s from. Or what’s happened to his blind friend Ruby.

He’s actually from Tir na Nog, the enchanted world of Shadowmagic, where a new generation of the royal House of Duir are cheeking their parents, preparing for adulthood and itching to see the Real World for themselves – whatever the peril.

John Lenahan, whose Shadowmagic trilogy sold more than 100,000 copies, takes us back to his enchanted parallel world where Irish folk myth combines with lively 21st-century banter.

Blogger the Book Dude says: ‘I loved Son of Shadow from the first page. I was literally grinning from the opening paragraph on. The writing is brilliant and if you are a fan of fairies, Irish myths, Tir na Nog and, above all, good, witty writing then you must read this book.’

Born in Philadelphia but long settled in the UK, Lenahan is an acclaimed magician and TV performer who played the voice of the toaster in Red Dwarf.
