Contraportada:

When magic sleeps, darkness awakens.

Críticas:

"When his brother, Geoffrey, vanishes one night after a string of disappearances that harbingers the return of an old evil, Edmund, Katherine, and their friend Tom, all interesting and well-rounded characters, fly in the face of the terrifying legends as they seek out Geoffrey and what they hope will be fantastic destinies. They travel untold distances and battle frightening things, both human and magical, to meet their fates. These three brave, smart, and virtuous heroes embark on the beginning of what is sure to be a sweeping, epic fantasy series. Debut author Jobin tells a riveting, slowly building story, and his rich, evocative writing style only adds to the package. Perfect for imaginative middle-grade readers craving a hearty magical adventure."--"Booklist"

"Fantasy fans will find much to enjoy in this elegant gem of a novel, and the haunting message that the monstrosity of some humans can rival even that of ageless creatures is so carefully and effectively inlaid that it will likely linger even after other details fade."--"BCCB"

An engrossing read. . . . Jobin combines elements of suspense and mystery with a pervasive sense of impending doom.--"School Library Journal"

"In this entertaining coming-of-age fantasy . . . fourteen-year-old would-be wizard Edmund, chafing at his parents' plans for him to inherit their inn, wants to rescue his younger brother, who has been kidnapped by the shadowy minions of the Nethergrim. . . . First in a planned trilogy, this is a solid debut for anthropologist Jobin, who steers clear of genre cliches while offering up a refreshingly metaphysical take on magic, a believably dark setting filled with unusual threats, and a seductive and manipulative villain."--"Publishers Weekly"

"An original and subtle tale by a debut author. . . . Entertainingly told with many unique features, "The Nethergrim" reads like a classic." --Recommended by Richard C., "Powells.com" "[Staff Pick at Powell's Books]"

""The Nethergrim" reminded me of a cross between "The Lord of the Rings" and "Harry Potter." Though geared for a preteen age group, both young adults and adults would surely enjoy it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and would recommend adding it to your shelves. I would really like to see this one on the big screen." --"Brodart's Library Services"

To this day, songs are sung and festivals held in the heroes honor. Yet now something dark has crept over the village. First animals disappear, their only remains a pile of bones licked clean. Then something worse: children disappear. The whispers begin quietly yet soon turn into a shout: The Nethergrim has returned!
