Product description

Six gems. One key. One Guardian to save the world!

Very few people ever enter the Shadow Woods, for these woods are like no others. Hidden deep within them is the Gateway to the Shadow Realm – a dark and chaotic world where gruesome creatures live. On her tenth birthday, tomboy Sophie discovers that she is the Guardian of the magical gateway to the Shadow Realm. Her destiny is to protect the human world from the goblins, trolls and evil sprites that live there. She mustn’t let them through the gate into our world. But disaster strikes when the Goblin King steals the key!

    I liked this book as the story was good and the characters were described well. At the end they had pages that the main character had written in her diary about what happened which I liked. I’m not saying this is a girls book but it didn’t quite make it for me but you should read it yourself and make your own choice.
