ITEM: One author signed copy of the children’s novel ‘The Spell of Undoings’.

DETAILS: Calamity has befallen the city of Quentaris! Due to a vengeful plot by warlike Tolrush, which backfires, Quentaris is uprooted; city, cliff-face, harbour and all; and hurled into the uncharted rift-maze. Lost and adrift in this endless labyrinth of parallel universes, encountering both friend and foe and facing unknown dangers, Quentaris must somehow forge a new identity and find its way home.

222 Fantasy/Dragonlinks: Paul Collins

ITEM: One author signed copy of the children’s novel ‘Dragonlinks’.

DETAILS:  An all-powerful, enchanted mailshirt from the stars. Six links are missing. An orphan, a streetwise urchin and a swordsman must find the links before the greatest evil known descends upon Q’zar.

Dragonlinks offers compulsive reading in a thrilling and wonderfully imagined quest for the individually power-bestowing links of a mysterious and arcane mailshirt. The story performs the unusual feat of combining meticulous and original world-building with a matchless heroine in the extraordinary young Countess Jelindel.’ Isobelle Carmody
