The Demon’s Watch by Conrad Mason

‘We’re the Demon’s Watch, son.  Protectors of Port Fayt.  Scourge of all sea scum.  Don’t tell me you've never heard of us?’

Half-goblin boy Joseph Grubb lives in Fayt, a bustling trading port where elves, trolls, fairies and humans live side by side.  Fed up of working at the Legless Mermaid tavern, Grubb dreams of escape – until a whirlwind encounter with a smuggler plunges him into Fayt’s criminal underworld.  There he meets the Demon’s Watch and learns of their mission to save the port from a mysterious and deadly threat.

Can Grubb and his new allies uncover the dark plot in time, or will they end up as fish food in Harry’s Shark Pit?

Peer & Press Reviews

Sparkling and energetic, it’s full of wit and comic timing, with piratical idioms galore…  I think this rip-roaring fantasy adventure is going to win a loyal – and thoroughly deserved – following.

The Bookbag

Brilliantly drawn, with wonderfully descriptive passages, and excitement and tension aplenty, this story cleverly intermingles the worlds of humans and mythical beings, so that its hardly seems like a fantasy novel at times.

Steve Pird, The School Librarian

Amid the swashbuckling and shoot-outs, the ethos and humour recall the straighter-faced Discworld books.
