This is the exciting tale of three children, Harry, Grace and Eleanor, who, whilst staying with their Uncle Jasper, find a secret door into the magical Palace Library, full of wondrous magical books and protected by Edgar the Librarian.
One day, when Harry slips through one of the doors out of the library, Eleanor and Grace are called on to rescue him, and are given magical books to help. When they go through the door, they find themselves in 17th century England. But they’re not there on holiday. The girls find Harry, but there’s more to be discovered as the children find out that the great sword Ascalon, the Sword of State and the very one Saint George used to slay the dragon, has been lost, and without it the dragons are returning to England. The children must travel to the edge of Hell’s bay, to re-forge Ascalon and banish the dragons once again. But that is not all. There are traitors aboard the ship, and they will do anything to sabotage the attempt. Will Harry, Eleanor and Grace manage to recover the Sword? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
I really enjoyed this book, and I thought the author has a really unique style which I haven’t seen before. The book is really exciting and I would recommend it to anyone.
