The Demon's Watch

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Joseph is a half-goblin boy leading a miserable life as a tavern servant. When he finds a mysterious parcel he hopes that by returning it to its owner he might be offered a new, exciting life as a sailor or pirate. But he soon discovers that there are dangerous magical forces abroad that will stop at nothing to regain the package.

Fortunately, he falls in with the Demon's Watch, a motley crew dedicated to fighting evil magic and preserving the peace of Port Fayt for all kinds of creatures. At last he has found friends and a home.

This exciting fantasy has well-rounded, likeable characters and a lively, twisting plot, yet it also tackles the issues of acceptance and prejudice.
