Product Description

Vicar Obadiah Demurral isn't satisfied running the affairs of his village--he wants to control the entire world. If his plan works, he will obtain a weapon so powerful that all of creation will fall down at his feet. Demurral will stop at nothing--even commanding restless souls to do his bidding. Raphah, a young man on a godly mission, has come a long distance to reclaim the ancient relic Demurral has stolen but he can't do it alone. Young Thomas and Kate are accidentally drawn into this ongoing war between good and evil. Their struggle against Demurral brings them face-to-face with the powers of darkness in this unforgettable epic battle.

G.P. Talyor's first novel takes readers on a breathtaking voyage, full of suspense and intrigue, where fallen angels and demonic forces come in the night and where the ultimate sacrifice might even be life itself.

Publisher's Description

An apocalyptic battle between good and evil is vigorously, violently fought in British author G.P. Taylor's suspenseful, action-packed fantasy. The story, set in the 1700s on the Yorkshire coastline, revolves around Vicar Obadiah Demurral, a corrupt-but-inept, dead-conjuring "shadowmancer" who desires to control the universe by overthrowing God, or Riathamus. When two hard-luck near-orphans, (13-year-old Thomas Barrick, a bitter enemy of Demurral, and his troubled friend Kate Coglund) band together with a young African stranger named Raphah, they spend the rest of the book trying to stop the wicked Vicar as if their very souls are at stake...they are. Along the way, the three youths meet an enormous cast of friends and foes, some agents of Riathamus, others of Satan (Pyratheon), and some godless (but not for long) smugglers like Jacob Crane.

Readers who love fanciful storybook characters will find mermaidlike Seloth, smelly hobs, leg-dragging servants, goodhearted whores, and benevolent boggles. Age-old superstitions abound, though old magic and witchcraft are clearly denounced here as the work of the devil. Indeed, the author, an English vicar himself, tells a very Christian story and his often deliciously dramatic adventure lapses into stiffly presented glowing-halo Touched by an Angel moments(readers will be lured into the Enchanted Forest, but tricked into Sunday school). Nonetheless, Shadowmancer, the first of a series, is a pageturner bursting with magic and myth, and will appeal to fantasy lovers who don't mind the Bible mixed in with their boggles. (Ages 11 and older) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Author Bio

G. P. Taylor has spent his life pursuing God’s secrets of the universe. He has had a multifaceted career spanning the music industry and law enforcement. Today, he is the vicar of Cloughton and lives near Whitby on the Yorkshire coast, a countryside of cliffs and moors, richly steeped in history and folklore. He initially self-published Shadowmancer—and even sold his motorcycle to fund the venture—printing it through a local writers’ co-op. Taylor’s goals were modest—he hoped to sell his book in local bookstores. However, it rapidly caught on via word of mouth, was republished by the prestigious Faber and Faber, and in no time it all became a huge bestseller in England.

    This isn't a Christian book! Mr. Taylor himself says in his interviews that "Shadowmancer is not a Christian book, it is a book about good and evil and appeals to Jews and Muslims as well as atheists" (http://www.theweeweb.co.uk/gp_taylor.php). This book actually misquotes the Bible in one spot, and goes against Biblical values. If you care about the books you read, you probably shouldn't read this book.

    I picked it up at a sale at a Christian bookstore and wasn't disappointed! Very fast pace, and without many dull moments- no wonder it was a best seller!
