A laugh-out-loud fantasy adventure for readers aged 8+

Join this madcap, funny and fast-paced adventure in the world of Brokenshire!

Described by one reviewer as Terry Pratchett meets Dr Who, this action-packed funny book will have young readers fully absorbed and laughing out loud. With a fearless heroine, a cast of super silly animal characters and an epic adventure worthy of Camelot, we predict this will be a big hit with fans of Sam Copeland, David Baddiel and Maz Evans.


Grace is woken in the middle of the night to the sound of an armoured horse in her back garden. The next thing she knows, a dying Grace doppelganger bursts through her bedroom door and insists that she is the fifteenth and final Grace, and it is her destiny to win the Worthy War.

Grace's quest takes her to the county of Brokenshire, where she must work with her trusty steed (who has a sharp tongue and a habit of reminding Grace of all the ghastly ends her predecessors have met!) to battle magical creatures and save the world.

A vegan T. rex, a distinguished dodo, bomber geese and the fearsome trigger wolf are amongst the cast of memorable characters Grace meets on her adventure.

Mark Powers has been making up ridiculous stories since primary school and is slightly shocked to find people now pay him to do it. He grew up in north Wales and now lives in Manchester. His favourite animals are the binturong, the aye-aye and the dodo.
