This is the third of three books in VOLUME THREE - the final volume - of the series.
PRAISE FOR ARCHIBALD LOX AND THE LEGION OF THE LOST
"Shan has created a far-reaching multiverse that boggles and beguiles, with characters that cannot fail to endear or revile. Beneath its simple, straightforward narrative is a deceptively complex, immersive experience that captivates the reader in a way only a master storyteller can." The British Fantasy Society.
"This book is a masterpiece, the very epitome of the phrase, 'saving the best for last'." The Literary Connoissuer.
"This final book in the series had everything. Tension, gore, heartache, deep soul-searching, laughs, adventure and an ending that will stay with you long after reading the last word." T. Higgs Reviews.
"Book nine is packed full of punches and twists. I was left with my mind reeling and my heart full in a heavy, satisfying sort of way." Rachel Hobbs, author of Shadow-Stained.
"One of my favourite things about Darren Shan is you can never predict what's going to happen next. Loose ends from previous books were cleared up in ways I'd never even considered. Now that I'm finished, I'm feeling pretty lost." This Dream's Alive.
PRAISE FOR VOLUME ONE
"A brisk, entertaining tale that unfolds in a wonderfully bizarre world." Kirkus.
"I read quite a lot during lockdown but nothing made me smile quite as much as these first three instalments in the Archibald Lox series." The Bookbag.
"Shan has created an alternative world that is extraordinary and imaginative with fantastical creatures that both delight and horrify. A soon-to-be fantasy classic." The US Review of Books.
"A gripping saga that will be appreciated not just by young adult audiences, but by adults who enjoy other strong YA authors who create fantasy worlds appealing to young and old alike." Midwest Book Review.
"A perfect middle grade book. I couldn't put it down and read it in almost one sitting. I give it a superb five out of five stars." Addicted to Media.
"High fantasy that allows you to step away from the real world and into a vivid space of wonder." The Reading Corner For All.
PRAISE FOR VOLUME TWO
"Shan has built an ambitiously original fantasy world populated with fully rounded characters who take us on unforgettably compelling journeys." Books, Films & Random Lunacy.
"The first three books were unlike anything I'd read before, and book 4 truly proves that Shan is a master storyteller." Kelly Smith Reviews.
