Waterstones Book of the Month

Huge congratulations are in order for S.A. Patrick, whose magical middle-grade novel has been chosen as the Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month for November!

Ten years on after the dreaded Piper of Hamelyn incident, young piper Patch Brightwater finds himself on the run from a prison sentence for innocently playing a forbidden spell. Accompanied by Wren, a girl cursed to live as a rat, and Barver, the fire-breathing dracogriff, the fleeing Patch suddenly finds himself pitched against the malevolence of the Piper himself.

A Darkness of Dragons is a high-octane adventure set in an inspired fantasy world of dragons and magic, perfect for young fans of Terry Pratchett.
