Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of How to Train Your Dragon comes an exciting high-adventure series - set in an ancient, magical time full of Wizards, Warriors, Giants and Sprites. 

This was once the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who had been taught since birth to hate each other like poison. 

But now, the boy Wizard and girl Warrior have been brought together in the Badwoods, and they have witnessed the shocking consequences of the Stone That Takes Away Magic. They will need to cast aside their differences once more - for an Evil Spell has broken free. 

It's up to Xar and Wish to find the ingredients. But it means entering the Druids Castle unannounced....

Perfect for boys and girls who love fantasy adventure.

Great story, captivating and fun.

The second installment is just as exciting as the first, with interesting plots and fun twists. Way too much singing by David Tennant, which isn't very good and a bit off-putting.

Enchantingly entertaining

David Tennant brings this story to life. He is the most fascinating narrator. This audiobook is wonderfuly and enchantingly entertaining. You laugh and cry and you don’t want it to end. I am 42 years old but all this magic and mischiefs of Wish and Xar and their friends made me feel like a child again. Loved every minute of this book!!! Thank you!!!!

Wonderful for both children & adults

A super continuation of the story. Mr Tennant has done an outstanding job bringing the characters to life as he did in book 1. That he has done it maintaining his Scottishness gladdened my own Scottish heart. Cannot wait for the next. Thank you all.

I didn’t want the story to end!

Such a brilliant second story following Wish and Xar’s adventures. Original, unpredictable storyline, superbly narrated and such brilliant characters. Don’t think of this as a teenagers’ book. It has all the classic elements to stand the test of time, and was hugely enjoyed by me, an adult!

Omg it’s amazing

I mean I didn’t think this book would be even better than the other book the wizards of once. David tennant is so enthusiastic and I also love the sound effects! If you like Harry Potter or magical stories like that you will love this book. I wish all the books would come about quicker because I love them so much!
