Beschreibung

This is the official USA uncorrected SIGNED proof copy of G.P.Taylor's Shadowmancer. This book proof is an advance copy that has been uniquely SIGNED by the author on the title page and is one of the very first to be made available in the world. It is one of only seven copies initially signed by the author directly onto the title page for his very first USA tour - he has also added the unique U.S. phrase "Have A Nice Day!" to make this a very apt and special American inscription. This is the USA first edition first impression, preceeding the official marketed book release. A rare opportunity for anyone to own this book. Larger than the UK version and it contains extra`s never previously published by anyone. The author`s preface is fantastic, setting the scene for one of the most acclaimed pieces of fiction in recent years. A very scarce opportunity for any serious collector to own. ALSO! The set comes with a promo flyer from the UK signing event and a picture of Taylor signing ! The book is unread with tight binding, clean pages and original matt wraps. The spine has a bump to the bottom (as they all do from the production fault). Otherwise, clean square corners. No internal marks etc. This is the first volume of an expected trilogy. A beautiful edition with illustarated map to beginning. No hardback release worldwide for almost 12months after the initial release! Brand new condition, unread, as issued by the publisher. Size: 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 000434

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Obadiah Demurral is a sorcerer who is seeking to control the highest power in the universe. He will stop at nothing. The only people in his way are Raphael, Kate, Thomas - and the mysterious Jacob Crane. Their tortured struggles lead them to a dramatic climax in the gothic church of St Mary's.

Review:

An apocalyptic battle between good and evil is vigorously, violently fought in British author G.P. Taylor's suspenseful, action-packed fantasy. The story, set in the 1700s on the Yorkshire coastline, revolves around Vicar Obadiah Demurral, a corrupt-but-inept, dead-conjuring "shadowmancer" who desires to control the universe by overthrowing God, or Riathamus. When two hard-luck near-orphans, (13-year-old Thomas Barrick, a bitter enemy of Demurral, and his troubled friend Kate Coglund) band together with a young African stranger named Raphah, they spend the rest of the book trying to stop the wicked Vicar as if their very souls are at stake...they are. Along the way, the three youths meet an enormous cast of friends and foes, some agents of Riathamus, others of Satan (Pyratheon), and some godless (but not for long) smugglers like Jacob Crane.

Readers who love fanciful storybook characters will find mermaidlike Seloth, smelly hobs, leg-dragging servants, goodhearted whores, and benevolent boggles. Age-old superstitions abound, though old magic and witchcraft are clearly denounced here as the work of the devil. Indeed, the author, an English vicar himself, tells a very Christian story and his often deliciously dramatic adventure lapses into stiffly presented glowing-halo Touched by an Angel moments(readers will be lured into the Enchanted Forest, but tricked into Sunday school). Nonetheless, Shadowmancer, the first of a series, is a pageturner bursting with magic and myth, and will appeal to fantasy lovers who don't mind the Bible mixed in with their boggles. (Ages 11 and older) --Karin Snelson
