What people have said about The Shadow Arts:

• “…Car chases and wrecks, sudden attacks, desperate battles, narrow squeaks, weird visions, and startling discoveries, not to mention the occasional blast of magic… Breathlessly paced adventure with rousingly eerie and icky notes.” – KIRKUS

• “Breathless action is back… and fans of the first book will be happy to be pulled along” – BOOKLIST

• “For fans of the first book and readers who enjoy action mixed in with their supernatural…Though there is still plenty of action to be found in car chases, heists, and kidnappings, the characters have matured…and are willing to make big decisions.” – SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL



A few months ago, Alex’s world changed…forever. Now, just when it seems life is almost getting back to normal, his grandfather crashes back into the picture with grave news: their friend Harry has fallen into the clutches of a familiar foe, and the old man needs Alex’s help to rescue him.

The duo’s desperate dash through Europe will lead them from Paris deep into Germany’s foreboding Black Forest, as they chase down the mystery Harry had been investigating when he disappeared, an ancient secret bigger than anything Alex ever dreamed of.  If they can’t solve the riddle in time, innocent lives –  even history itself – could be at stake.
