Tabatha and Rufus are about to embark on an adventure and discover that they are far from ordinary. Together they will attempt a dangerous rescue that will change their lives forever whilst uncovering the secrets their mother had hidden from them. There are things they must learn if they are to defeat the evil ones and the black dragon Elmorn. Meanwhile, Nogard will be their defender and friend, but not to be confused with a pet, as this is no gentle dragon.Their new-found skills are both fun and magical, but their adventure cannot be fulfilled by magic alone! There are puzzles to solve and paths to find, along with magical creatures waiting to take you into their world. Mean Hobgoblins running amok, a mysterious dog in need of help, and a two-headed giant in the place of no return. This is no ordinary adventure…

    I thought this was a great read.

    The pace may be a little fast for some, but the great thing is that the story never gets boring, and the imagination presented is wonderfully vivid.

    Really enjoyed this story and hope it becomes a series of books.

    This is a book full of excitement and surprises! It transports you from the very real world of a railway station (I could actually picture myself outside Euston Station!) and it actually reminded me of scenes of children being evacuated during WW2. Then quite suddenly I was transported to a totally different world, of magical surprises and mysteries. The story moves rapidly and is full of excitement, fun and the right amount of scary moments - impossible to guess what will happen next!!!

    I found the pace a little fast but it's only because I was so intrigued and wanted to know more about each scene. Despite the pace, there's so much happening that the story keeps you on your toes. As a reader, you're transported to mystical lands and meet interesting characters. I enjoyed the story on the whole and hope to hear more of Tabatha and Rufus' adventures.
