Cressida Cowell, the bestselling author of How to Train Your Dragon, kicks off a magical new adventure with The Wizards of Once. This hardback book is set in an ancient, magical time when Wizards and Warriors hated each other like poison. Magic used to live in the dark forests, but then the Warriors came... Xar is a young wizard boy who has no magic and Wish is a Warrior girl who owns a banned magical object that she will do anything to conceal... As the duo head towards the dungeons at Warrior Fort, they quickly notice something that has been sleeping for hundreds of years is stirring... They're going to have to put their differences aside in order to survive. This is an exciting and timely page-turning fantasy that tackles serious subjects such as the divisiveness nature of society with a deft lightness of touch. It even features some of Cressida's own incredible illustrations.

Sooo good -

Being dyslexic, I tend to take many days to read any book but I really enjoyed this and had finished it in one day. I just couldn't put it down.
