Overview

The Wizard Heights series continues at a galloping pace in book 3, The Shard of Aslemere!

Wizard Heights has fallen to forces loyal to the High Council and an armed resistance has sprung up amongst the remaining loyal magicians.

Charlie awakens the next morning after his adventure in the Library of Ancients, to find the cavern pirate, Midnight at the end of his bed. Mr. Clevecelees is missing, Midnight tells him, and he needs to be found. For one thing, there's the matter of a golden talisman that Cleveclees dropped while in Old Sal's chamber in the pirate town of Moonwick. It's part of a larger treasure; a sacred pirate relic called the Talisman of the Covenant, and the pirates very much want to find it.

Meanwhile, an Ancient Egyptian Priesthood called the Uhktamach pursues Charlie and Whitstable. Sibelius Linkletter (the undertaker from the Garden of Evil Spirits) appears at Ridgedale High and tells the boys that their time on earth is soon to come to an end. That evening the priesthood attacks Charlie's home, and Charlie flees into the forest where he is saved, just in the nick of time, by Mr. Salamond who takes him to Mr. Cleveclees.

At the same time, Whitstable explores Le Jardin de Lyon, a graveyard beneath The Grand Chancellery, and digs up his great uncle George who is benignly dead. Together they set off on a quest to find the sacred Crook and Flail of the Pharaoh (an ancient Egyptian artifact that may defeat the ancient Egyptian priesthood) in the Chancellery museum.

That evening, Charlie attends a great council at Aslemere Manor. Wizard Heights is overrun by an unknown enemy, explains the Imperial Secretary. GW Grisholm is imprisoned within the Regent Tower, yet the enemies' identity is still unknown.

There is only one way to solve this mystery—The Shard Of Aslemere; a sacred standing stone that for centuries been used to divine threats against Wizard Heights. Entering its myriad pathways can reveal untold mysteries, but there are risks to those who attempt this feat. One may be sent back in time or to another dimension entirely. Undaunted, Mr. Cleveclees and Charlie enter the shard and, amidst gasps of surprise, disappear entirely.

What will Charlie and Mr. Cleveclees find within the Shard of Aslemere?
Can Whitstable find the sacred Crook and Flail of the Pharaoh and defeat the ancient Egyptian priests?
And what of Meagan who is pursued by the same mysterious force that has attacked Wizard Heights?

Find the answer to all of these questions and more in the latest page-turning, awe inspiring installment of the Wizard Heights series—Book 3, The Shard of Aslemere.
