Greenwoods Books, Edmonton:
Thomas Wharton presents The Shadow of Malabron
Wednesday, September 10: 7:30 p.m.
The Shadow of Malabron is the first novel in the trilogy, The Perilous Realm. Long ago, Malabron the Night King tried to turn all stories into one – his story, a nightmare of absolute power. But when Will, a rebellious teenager, stumbles from the present into the realm where stories come from, he is caught up in Malabron’s evil designs. Aided by some of the story folk – including the feisty Rowen, her grandfather Pendrake (a loremaster) and Shade, the laconic but loyal wolf – Will must combat a host of perils, if he is ever to find the gateless gate that will take him home.
“The Realm is not just a world with stories in it. This world is Story. It is the place that all of the tales in your world come from. Whatever you might find in a story, you will find here. Adventures, strange encounters, riddles. Goblins, ghosts, wizards, dragons. Heroes and monsters. Bravery, goodness, and terrible evil. And many other things that have yet no name in your world. And you are here now, and that means you are in a story, too."
