Warriors of the Black Shroud by Peter Howe

Walker Watson is a lonely eleven-year-old who keeps to himself because his classmates tease him about the star-shaped birthmark on his cheek. But he finds a companion in Eddie—short for Prince Edward the Soon-To-Be Terrible—who rises up from the underworld to persuade Walker to join him in the Nebula, a dark kingdom where his birthmark is a sign of royalty. The kingdom glows with light from a secret power supply called the Source, but the king is dying and can only pass on the secret of the Source to someone with the mark. Walker is hesitant to accept the challenge but when the Kingdom is threatened by the evil Warriors of the Black Shroud who wants to destroy the Source, he knows he is the only one who can help.

Warriors of the Black Shroud is an awesome book!  The story is an action packed fantasy that takes the reader on an exciting, sad, scary and unpredictable journey.  The author has created several  interesting characters who inhabit the underworld kingdom of Nebula who must battle evil and learn to believe in the power within themselves.  Some characters face the ultimate test of living or dying in their quest to defeat the evil forces.  The plot is full of twists which I really enjoyed.  I highly recommend this book for brave boys and girls, ages 9-12.

This book is in stores now

Happy reading!
