"For fans of Harry Potter and the Narnia series"
Most caring parents tell their children that the closet
contains no lurking monsters. Ted March knows they are
real, demons from a hellhole demanding that six-year-old
Devon to let them out. Ted tells Devon the truth that the
monsters are real and that they won't get him because he's
more powerful than they are. When Devon turns fourteen,
his father dies and he becomes the ward of Mrs. Crandall of
From the time he arrives at the gothic mansion, he feels
the magic there, and fights the demons that want him to
open the portal that will let them roam free on Earth.
Devon learns he is a Nightwing, a magical order of
sorcerers who have the power to open the hellholes. He's
engaged in the fight of his life with the dead master of
Revancliff, who wants to reclaim his family home and the
powers that lives there. If Devon doesn't prove strong
enough, the demons will embark upon a reign of terror
unlike any that has gone before.
Fans of Harry Potter and the Narnia books are going to love
SORCERERS OF THE NIGHTWING. Many of Devon's questions are
resolved but there are many more that go unanswered so it
seems likely that this is the start of a great new fantasy
series aimed at the young adult market. The hero is very
mature for his age and though he has the same problems as
any adolescent boy he is further bewildered with a gift and
a legacy he doesn't understand. Geoffrey Huntington is a
bright new star in the fantasy genre.
