From the author of the Aurealis-winning Kumiko and the Dragon comes the final captivating book in the Kumiko and the Dragon trilogy.
Kumiko is used to having a dragon guarding her night and day, but what she doesn’t quite know is why she needs one …
Since discovering the secret of the Shadow Catchers, a group of powerful sorcerers determined to steal magic at any cost, Kumiko knows it’s only a matter of time before her family’s link to dragons puts them all in grave danger. Is there a way to stop the Shadow Catchers once and for all and will Kumiko take the risk?
Kumiko and the Shadow Catchers follows Kumiko’s last and most exciting adventure as she travels through a world of shadows and dark magic in order to find freedom for herself and the kingdom of dragons.
It's wonderful for young readers to be able to believe in a magical world and know that they too can be brave enough to face their fears.
