The Wizards of Once
A thrilling adventure begins in the first book in a magical new series by Cressida Cowell, the author of How to Train Your Dragon. This is the story of a reckless young wizard, Xar, who sets out into the Badwoods in search of magic – where he encounters a warrior girl called Wish. Wizards and warriors are enemies, and Xar and Wish have been trained from birth to hate each other. Yet when their worlds unexpectedly collide, the unlikely duo soon find themselves setting out on a dangerous journey together. Set in ancient Britain, in a landscape of dark forests and wild woods, and featuring a cast of magical creatures including fairies, giants, ogres and sprites, this is a spellbinding adventure. It’s so brilliantly entertaining, exciting and scary, you’ll be desperate to get your hands on the sequel.
