Overview

When Keidon and Sirius, his robot dog, aliens from the planet Veetox, visit Earth, they land in a magical wood, Shamwood, where the animals and their protector, Gladwin, are at war with a neighbouring king, Zomak. At first, Gladwin, an ancient wizard, is suspicious of the aliens, but when they save his life during a skirmish with Zomak's soldiers, he realizes he has acquired two strong allies. Zomak, thinking that the aliens are the creation of the wizard himself, also acquires a powerful ally. He hires Morguel, an evil sorceress who is obsessed with gold. Zomak tricks her into believing that the river in Shamwood is full of gold and it can be all hers as long as she gets rid of Gladwin and the aliens. From then on, Keidon and Sirius find themselves involved in a mysterious and full blooded war but they decide to remain on Earth until Zomak is overthrown. After all there is an old prophecy to be fulfilled!

An action packed children's novel set in a magical wood, Shamwood, where two space travellers (an alien and his robot dog) befriend an ancient wizard and decide to help him and his protected animals to fight a mysterious war against an evil king and a powerful sorceress.

Sorry, not much of a reviewer, but take it from me, this book is a real treat for young readers, especially those who prefer to read strictly for fun. I promise you, they would love it!

A jolly good read.Very entertaining. This children's novel has plenty to offer: drama, humour,suspense,and bagfuls of action.... And you'd love the characters: a purple alien, a funny robot dog, a quaint wizard, an evil king, a powerful sorceress,a beautiful princess, a comical dwarf, a very stupid giant, and plenty of talking animals, including a vain little mouse by the name of Ricoodoo... I promise you you'd love this fantasy/science fiction mixture no matter what your age is,a mark of a good book.

This fantasy for young people contains more ingredients than a witch's cauldron. What a brew: the result is absolutely magic!
