'Three years have passed since Marcel defeated Mortregis, the great dragon of war, and more than a year since the Battle of Cadell. On a mountainside in Elster, Bea, who has lived among the elves all this time, longs to see her human friends again. When strange creatures disturb the tranquillity of the mountain forests and her grandfather disappears, she calls for Marcel's help. Together with his cousin, Fergus, they travel into the forbidden underground world of Baden Dark on a rescue mission. But Marcel senses an ancient evil in Baden Dark and becomes determined to free all of Elster from its threat. Forever. The challenge will test his growing power as a sorcerer and even success may come at a terrible price. Bea is not convinced by his ambitions and when Marcel betrays her with his magic, he makes a decision that may keep them apart forever. Fast-paced and completely enthralling, the compelling conclusion to this trilogy is guaranteed to have readers unable to turn the pages fast enough! Ages 9 - 12' (Publisher's blurb)

y Master of the Books James Moloney , Pymble : Angus and Robertson , 2007 Z1402649 2007 single work novel young adult fantasy

'When Marcel defeated the great dragon of war, Mortregis, he thought he'd destroyed the Book of Lies as well. But one fragment remains, and this is what his brother Fergus has taken with him on a journey that is part quest for revenge, part search for his own place in the world. In this much anticipated sequel to The Book of Lies, Fergus hunts down the ruthless Damon, armed with a weapon that will let him challenge the man in mortal combat. One of them will not live to see the story's end. As Marcel and Nicola pursue Fergus, each with their own cares, Nicola will discover the value of the very thing she has been fleeing and risk losing it forever. As for Marcel, the new Master of the Books, is he truly a great sorceror or nothing but a charlatan? Only when the fate of the entire land lies in his hands will he know what his destiny is, and only then may the last fragment of the Book of Lies be destroyed. Ages 10+' (Publisher's blurb)
