Dark Peak. A land of long fields and rough mountains; a battleground where two of the Earth’s protectors meet the worst of humanity’s excesses made flesh. And one of them, Jake Walker, doesn’t even know what he’s doing. Not really. He’s only had a few weeks to get used to the idea. And it’s not long enough.

This is an excellent example of all-age literature, an enthralling story with lively imagery and strong characters. You may read it as a fantasy novel and adore the naïve wisdom of Stone. At the same time it is a well observed coming-of-age story.

I've really enjoyed this book! The story follows Jake Walker into the English Peak District (unlikely setting, I know!) during one of the hottest summers on record - seriously hot, people are dying from it.

‘Dark Peak’ appeared and settled before winter fully hit. Making itself at home on my study table, it sat there; a paperweight atop dull yellow files from work. I read it between marking. During marking, I am a mixture of irritable, quiet and disciplined. Many would find my routine filled with oddities, but within my peculiar use of hours (snacking at 2 am some days) are minutes of undisturbed reading. Being a book about the forces of nature both visible and hidden (through the eyes of Jake, a ...more

A bit worthy with all the climate/pollution message not so subtle (yet speaking myself as a bit of a climate warrior....). Otherwise very attractive. A good dragon and it's always great to read books set in the Peak district, especially with some geology. Mention of mountains niggles a bit as we don't have any - 'Peak' is from the old English word 'peac' meaning 'Hill'. And there is no need to call them mountains - they are fantastic hills! However I should set my niggles aside because I enjoyed ...more

I've lived and written in Nottinghamshire, London, Sheffield, Edinburgh and Houston, and now in the quiet depths of Northamptonshire, surrounded by rolling fields and forests that go on forever - and are likely to be home to any number of natural (and supernatural) creatures. Dark Peak is my first novel.
