It's happening, you guys!
Robin Jarvis' official website has a banner that states 'HAGWOOD IS COMING', and the whole triology is in the process of being relaunched by another publisher. Dark Waters of Hagwood will be released in june 2013, and the last book, War in Hagwood, presumably will follow at the end of next year.

BEYOND EXITED!! I've been waiting for this for a decade!

May, 2013: It has a cover! It has a plot synopsis! IT'S ALIVE!!!
Ohmygod, I think I just peed a little, guy

It has taken me a while to work out what it is I like about Robin Jarvis' books - especially his ones about small creatures, like we get with the werlings in Harwood. I've finally worked it out.

It's 80s hand-drawn animation. The whole thing is steeped in the visual aesthetic of hand-drawn animation from that decade, if animation had been allowed to go down a slightly darker path.

Do I love it? Why yes. Yes I do. Thank you for asking. I was excited to see Robin Jarvis' name on the cover and even more excited once I began reading this. With so much of fantasy recently being focused on more political type literature like GoT, it was nice to return to a world where the use of magic and silly, entertaining creatures was not a taboo.

I found this book to have a nice blend of humour, good storytelling and adventure. It was fun to learn about the different characters and there w

Gamaliel Tumpin along with his sister and other werling friends continue their mission to free the forest of Hagwood from the cruel and enduring reign of the wicked High Lady of the Hollow Hill who tried to rid herself of them using her thorn ogres in the first book of this trilogy. Thrills and fearful happenings abound in this sequel and Robin Jarvis constantly has his readers chewing their nails worrying that his cute heroes will fail in their struggles and succumb to a grisly end at the hands ...more

I was a tiny bit disappointed with this book. I enjoyed Thorn ogres so much that this seemed a bit loose and unfocused plot wise. There were so many fascinating strands - Mr Jarvis is an accomplished world builder after all - but the book didn't do them justice. Part of this must have been space; it's a short book intended for younger readers. But the issue for me was there being too many characters to really do any of them justice in such a slender volume.

And that was seriously the most frustr
