Patch Brightwater is a trainee piper of prodigious talent, but also a boy in disgrace. In a world of magic, dragons and musical spells, he has been sent to prison for playing a forbidden spell. Whilst in prison he discovers a shocking truth – the dangerous and evil Piper of Hamelyn is on the loose. With the help of Wren, a girl cursed to live as a rat, and Barver, a fire-breathing dracogriff, Patch must stop the Piper sparking the biggest battle of them all.
S.A.Patrick has created a world that is easy to become a part of. The settings are beautifully described, the action scenes get your heart racing and the twists are certainly unexpected. You really do care for the main characters and the trials that they are put through; sharing in their happiness and their heart-break in equal measure. Fast-paced and action-packed, I for one can not wait to return to the world of the Pipers and join Patch on his next adventure.
