Aubrey and his espionage unit are sent into Gallia, near the border of Holmland, and told to monitor (from a distance) the magical outpourings from the town of Stalsfrieden. But when war comes to them in full force, the unit makes the decision to travel into Holmland and explore the town for themselves. What they discover in Stalsfrieden is a terrifying blend o...more

Aubrey Fitzwilliam is getting something of a rude awakening when it comes to adulthood - he's going to war. It's happened - Albion has finally had to declare war on Holmland. Aubrey is thrown into work as a special operative at the Security Intelligence Directorate, where his magical skills are in demand.

It's not long before Aubrey and friends find themselves at the Gallian front, undertaking some serious work and seeing the impact of Dr Mordecai Tremaine's work on the Holmlander enemy forces.

I loved this book beyond words... Aubrey, Caroline and George take us off on another rollicking adventure into the midst of War. As usual Michael Pryor has managed to capture the heart of adventure and finely tune it to create the ‘Moment of Truth’, as once I started reading it I could not put it down. The twists, turns and plot developments constantly kept me on my toes as Aubrey and his friends faced the challenges and expectation of wartime.

I shall not spoil this amazing book for anyone else,...more

Albion is at war so of course the first thing Aubrey and George do is enlist. They are sent as spies to Gallia and are to remain undercover and prepare the way for a secondary, more experienced team. Naturally nothing goes as planned and Aubrey discovers that the Holmlanders are building a weapon so powerful it will be catastrophic to Albion. Aubrey of course can not simply hide and hope for the best but can he stop or at least delay without getting caught.

This is a great young adult series that...more
