Summary

The black star has been averted, but Ayden and his friends are not out of danger yet. When he and Merlin realize that Ayden's reputation as a curse breaker does more harm than good, they decide to travel, only to be captured by assassins the next morning. They have gained the attention of powerful people, and they will have to be clever and vigilant not to become pawns. What begins as a quest to clear up a misunderstanding and uncover the disappearance of a missing wizard, soon becomes an adventure of peril and magic, which will test Ayden's abilities, Merlin's wisdom, and an immortal prince's bravery. They will face monsters, deadly traps, powerful foes, and even more dangerous allies.

To become an immortal, one first has to die.

Continuing the adventures of Ayden, seventh son of a seventh son, and Merlin, this time in the shape of a wolf. After capture by assassins who take Ayden before his assumed parents, the two companions realise that Ayden has a double, a prince made immortal and charged with the protection of a dragon egg. A new quest begins, to save the egg and the three travel through different worlds and face numerous attacks and life threatening choices. There are dragons and monsters, mirror portals, miraculous inventions, even a shopping mall - and a little girl looking for he pussy cat!

Lots of fun and humour well written into this delightful series, told in the first person by Ayden (with an occasion unwelcome comment from elsewhere). The characters are shiny bright and, despite the tricks, betrayals, monsters and magic, the whole retains a charming innocence. A pleasure for older children and refreshing, too, for adult readers.

Narrator J.Scott Bennett continues to be the ongoing voice of Ayden as well as breathing extra life into all of the other characters with his flawless interpretations, differentiated voices and wonderfully cadenced reading.
Lots of action, imagination and fun.

Another winner!

I have put Rain Oxford on my must read list! I absolutely love her books. This is another wonderful continuation of Ayden's and Merlin's adventure.
I love how Ayden can be so literal. Make me laugh every time.

I love J. Scott Bennett's voice. He also brings the characters to life.

This is a promotional copy and this is my personal review.
