Overview

"Based on the best-selling novel by G.P Taylor, and soon to be a feature length movie.

Vicar Obadiah Demurral no longer wants to worship God—he wants to be God!

Obadiah Demurral may be a vicar, but knowing what master he truly serves would come as a shock to the villagers of Thorpe.

Craving power and filled with insatiable greed, he has welcomed a darkness into his life that enables him to do terrible things, in the hope of harnessing control over the universe. He will stop at nothing, and as a Shadowmancer—a sorcerer who speaks to the dead—he even commands restless souls to do his bidding.

Young Raphah has come from another continent to reclaim the precious artifact—dangerously volatile in the wrong hands—that Demurral has stolen.

Even younger and less experienced in the ways of battle are Thomas and Kate, accidentally drawn into this war between good and evil, this struggle against Demurral that brings them face-to-face with the powers of darkness in an epic battle."

    Imitation is Another Word for Fake

    Arrogantly advertised as 'Hotter than Potter,' and as an appropriate non-occultic Christian alternative, Shadowmancer is neither. As Graham Taylor told the BBC, 'A lot of the pagan stuff in my book is genuine material. Part of Demural's prayer to invoke the sea is taken from the witches' rite of invocation. So people can find far more stuff in my book than in Harry Potter.' Also disturbing, and more than slightly sacrilegious, is the toted magical powers of a self-aware (read 'living') golden cherub stolen from the Ark of the Covenant. With it, the Arch-villain believes he can wield power over the god of the book. Make no mistake: this god is (wink) God. Yet although the religious symbols are taken from Judaism, Christianity, and Muslim tradition, Graham renames the Almighty, lest the reader suspect the plot is slightly (gasp) religious in nature. Not content with 'borrowing' themes from C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien, Steven Spielberg, and J.K. Rowling, Graham re-writes sacred biblical material. Poorly written and possibly profane, Shadowmancer is a cheap imitation of its betters.
