Volume II of The Archisan Tales

Taya and Lorkrin's shape-changing Myunan tribe faces an invasion by Noran, which is intent on mining the valuable iron ore from their sacred mountain, Absaleth. But the mountain is haunted and fights back with supernatural powers. Then a mine tunnel collapses and the miners are trapped. With them are Taya and Lorkrin's parents, Nayalla and Mirkrin, who had been searching for their unruly children.

Taya and Lorkrin are terrified for their parents. But help arrives in the form of their Uncle Emos. He and his friend Draegar know there is one chance for the trapped people -- another entrance to the caves far back in the mountain range. A rescue party sets out as the mountain starts to collapse in on itself.

'very strong on invention of character and fast-moving, frightening adventure'

'there's a collection of wondrous creatures that London Zoo would cast an envious glance at, a set of rogues who veer towards the pantomime and two engaging central characters on a voyage of discovery that pre-teen and early teen readers will empathise with. It all leaves you marvelling at the invention of Oisn McGann.'

'A funny, scary and unputdownable book'



Publishing News

'From the very first pages, I was held firmly under its spell; I read it with huge enjoyment, and after reaching the final chapter I was even tempted to begin it all over again. For those that appreciate the fantastic, this book has it all: nail-biting tension stirred in with plenty of humour.'
