I have just seen a copy of my most recent book, THE DRAGON AND THE WARLORD.
The illustrations, by Daniel Atanasov, are every bit as good as I’d thought they’d be. They’re all great, but my favourite is perhaps the drawing on page 51, which shows the dragon on the wing, silhouetted by the full moon, while beneath him the cliff-top fortress collapses into ruin. I also like the grim scene on page 5, where Sheng’s father lies dying, his body pierced by arrows, carrion birds circling above him in the darkening sky.

THE DRAGON AND THE WARLORD is from Barrington Stoke, a publisher that specialises in books for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers, but don’t be put off if you’re not any of those things. I’ve read quite a few barrington Stoke books and they’re really good, well worth reading by anyone who likes a good story. If you don’t find them on the shelves at your nearest bookshop then they should be able to order you in a copy - or you can buy them online.

I am looking forward to seeing this book, particularly the illustrations, which are by Bulgarian Manga artist Daniel Atanasov. So far I’ve only seen the front cover and the early, rough versions of the black and white drawings inside, but they all look excellent. THE DRAGON AND THE WARLORD is published by Barrington Stoke. If you prefer shorter books with fast-moving storylines, and you also like retellings of old folk tales and legends, then this could be for you. Amazon will be selling it, or you can get your local bookshop to order you a copy.
