"Startling, original and epic." —Eoin Colfer, creator of Artemis Fowl, on Thieves of Weirdwood
Once best friends, Arthur and Wally find themselves on opposites sides of an epic war.

But Wally and his brother Graham, who can see into the future, seek to topple it and create a new world.
Meanwhile, the shadowy Order of Eldar, led by the fearsome Eraser, are also prepared to sow chaos and let wondrous and dangerous creatures of imagination run wild. In this exhilarating last installment of Weirdwood, the lines between reality and fantasy will forever be broken. Perfect for fans of Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky and Keeper of the Lost Cities.
