What if everything you ever knew about your parents – everything you ever knew about yourself – turned out to be a deception? Who would you trust? Who COULD you trust? For Niamh and Grady O’Connell a simple and easy country life comes to an abrupt halt late one Autumn day when they encounter a Phoenix in a forest – a Phoenix who knows them by name. The meeting sets them off on an adventure and takes them to a world they could only dream existed but never imagined they could visit – Nearworld. After being forced to abandon their old life by the evil powers of a dark wizard they must learn how to survive in a magical world peopled by Vampires, Elves, Banshees, Leprechauns, and Weresetters (like Werewolves but infinitely more lovable). Their new home in a castle, and their school at Rookwood Hall wraps them in a deceptive safety net. Detentions don’t always turn out to be the drudgery they expect, and lunchtime games take on a whole new meaning when wands are involved. With the help of new friends, a dangerous dragon, and their combined wits, the children face a danger they could never have foreseen, and discover they are linked in a way that takes them beyond the bonds of family and friends. The future of two worlds depends on their choices. Azraels twins is the first book in the Nearworld tales and will be followed soon by Azrael’s Twins and the Circle of Stone.
