All children love an escape from the humdrum of daily life into a world of fantasy, and that is exactly what Knights of the Borrowed Dark by Dave Rudden offers.


Aimed at kids aged 10 years+, Knights of the Borrowed Dark is the first in a series telling the story of Denizen Hardwick, an orphan living a particularly ‘normal’ life, when his world gets turned upside-down.


While Denizen doesn’t believe in magic, his perspective changes entirely when he has a brush with a monster from the shadows and finds out that there is a world of darkness hiding behind our own.


There to bravely battle this unseen enemy, however, are the Knights of the Borrowed Dark, and Denizen is about to find out that he has a very special connection with this band of warriors.


After seeing everything he thought he knew about his world turned on its head, Denizen is faced with a dilemma: carry the secret with him through his daily life, or fulfil his destiny with the Knights.


Knights of the Borrowed Dark is a funny and fast-paced fantasy adventure that will capture your child’s imagination.


If your son or daughter has read and loved the Skulduggery Pleasant (Derek Landy) and Percy Jackson & the Olympians (Rick Riordan) series, then they will really enjoy this book.


Knights of the Borrowed Dark is published by Penguin, and is now available to buy.
