I am now reading "Shadowmancer" by GP Taylor and I am not impressed by it at all. I knew that it would have some religion in it but it is to 'in your face'. There was an Adam and Eve mention in it and it almost made me put the book down. I think the religion almost takes over the story and destroys what was actually a brilliant idea with a lot of potential. A lot of friends in work were put off by the same things too. I find it hard to see why it is so popular when the Narnia books are heavily criticised for it's Christian content. I will persevere with it though as it is a quick read. I will probably still read "Wormwood" by the same author as I have heard that it is very good. I also treated myself to a new book called "Dragon Rider" by Cornelia Funke. I fell in love the book when I saw it. It has a beautiful cover and in the centre there is a pop up map.
