Vancouver Writers Fest
At the Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival:
Those with a taste for dark fantasy and the worlds of magic, adventure and time-travel will revel in new works by authors Hiromi Goto and Matthew Skelton. In Skelton’s novel, merciless rogues are conniving to steal the world’s most divine power, which they believe young Cirrus Flux has inherited. Goto’s heroine Melanie is lured to the purgatory-like Half World to save her mother, only to realize the whole state of the universe is at risk. A violent struggle to restore cosmic balance ensues. With contemporary flair, two accomplished authors bring new relevance to the universal themes of good and evil.
Suitable for grades 8 to 10
