Review: Denizen, an Irish orphan, is suddenly whisked away from the only home he has ever known to meet his aunt. He discovers that on his 13th birthday he will develop powers to see shadow monsters. He joins an order of knights, which his aunt leads, to fight this enemy, the living darkness. The first of a trilogy, this book develops Denizen’s character and that of his best friend, Simon, who is still at the orphanage. Harry Potter fans will appreciate similarities in the language and creatures.
