How would you handle it when your faithful dog started to speak to you after a nasty blow to the head? You'd probably not want to take the event too seriously... However, when that dog is joined by countless others, from hog people to bird warriors, all who claim you are the reincarnation of their greatest wizard, you might find life a little harder to handle... A boy, Callum, discovers he is one of the Awoken. Mortals who can see the magical world beyond our own and more importantly, can cross over. But he is not just another normal Awoken, is he a wizard who must embark on a quest to travel to the Land of Fading Light to defeat Dark Lord Dalmar, a powerful wizard who threatens the existence of both worlds. He and those who travel with him, fight many terrible enemies and when they face the final great battle, everyone must find the courage they need to save themselves and each other. Will Callum succeed in his quest and fulfil his destiny? Or will Dalmar and the mighty dragons, the scourge of the sky, destroy their world and ours? Land of the Awoken is the first novel of Ben Fielder, the next big name in the world of young adult fantasy. This is The Hobbit, Narnia and The Amber Spyglass all in one.
