Jack Shian and the King’s Chalice
By (author) Andrew Symon
Jack’s family are Shian, ‘otherworld’ creatures who have crept in and out of human affairs throughout history. And Jack’s family are special: working for the Shian Congress, they have been watching over the Stone of Destiny – one of the great Shian treasures – for seven hundred years. Its homecoming has energised the dormant Shian folk, giving renewed strength to their ancient powers and gifts. However, the prospect of the Stone’s power causes different factions to quarrel as they did centuries ago, and when Jack’s parents disappear separately, under mysterious circumstances, the trouble is just beginning.
Andrew Symon qualified as a midwife in 1986, and further obtained a Social Policy and Law degree in 1992 and a PhD in 1997. He is a senior lecturer at Dundee University and has written and edited numerous books in his field. THE SHIAN QUEST TRILOGY is his fiction debut.
