Gavin is an ordinary boy with problems like everyone else, when he finds himself in an extraordinary situation and facing the fight of his life.
People are calling him Sir Gawain, a knight, and are sending him on a medieval Quest. How has he found himself on a horse when he has never ridden before? How come he has a sword in his hand and terrifying creatures are bearing down upon him? He seems to have slipped through the time-space continuum into another universe, another time.
But can he win the battle of Good against Evil, and can he save the land of Unor - and, more importantly, can he save himself in both worlds?
This is a story of dragons, magic and quests for children/YA aged 9-14 but enjoyed by adults too.
What have readers said about S.C.A.R.S?
"This is a tale of friendship and strength when the world about you is full of evil", "If you are feeling a little lost and in need of a fantastical escape, this is the book for you, regardless of your age!", "...captures the imagination and awakens a sense of adventure in the reader", " a wonderful fantasy story", "a magical story that had me turning page after page, dying to know what happens next", "this book has everything: adventure, magic, heart-stopping moments - a lovely story, beautifully woven", " Just brilliant!", "a must read ... a journey of emotions, laughs and magic that will not easily be forgotten, tickling that spot of belief in magic, tucked into a corner somewhere, that all children harbour; it is true, there is still magic in the world."
