The Demon World by Sally Green (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Sunday, Feb 09, 2020 at 1:31pm

King Aloysius has discovered the power of demons’ smoke. It can make a child faster and stronger than the most fit solider. With his power hungry ways, he plans to make an army like no other, an army of children. There are few who can stop him, Princess Cathrine, Ambrose, Tash, Edyon, and March. Coming from all walks of life, they must come together, go through the demon tunnels, thwart politicians and assassins, and stop King Aloysius plans before it is to late. I would rate this book a 2/5 because there is way to much love, sex, politics, and all the stuff I don’t like in a good fantasy book.

An Evening with Kenneth Oppel

Wednesday, Mar 05, 2014 at 11:30am

We're so very pleased to announce that one of Canada's most beloved authors, Kenneth Oppel, will be joining us on Monday May 12 at 7:00 pm in Winnipeg to launch his new book The Boundless (HaperCollins Canada). The official event listing is here.

Oppel will be speaking about his latest work and reading selections before signing books for those in attendance.

Will Everett wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but after his family's fortunes change, he finds himself with a first-class ticket for The Boundless. The longest, most glamorous locomotive in the world, it stretches more than eleven kilometres long and pulls an astounding 987 cars: passenger cars, shooting galleries, gardens, an onboard swimming pool, cinema and much more. But its maiden voyage won't be a smooth ride for Will. Sasquatches, bog-dwelling hags, murder, and illusions abound in this outsized middle-grade adventure.

Kenneth Oppel is the Governor General's Award-winning author of the Airborn series and the Silverwing saga, which has sold over a million copies worldwide. His most recent novels are Half Brother, winner of both the CLA Book of the Year for Children Award and the Young Adult Book award; This Dark Endeavour, finalist for the Governor General's Literary Award; and Such Wicked Intent, finalist for the CLA Young Adult Book Award. Canada's nominee for the 2014 Hans Christian Andersen Award, Kenneth Oppel lives in Toronto with his wife and their three children. Visit him online.
