The Spyglass and the Cherry Tree – Matt Beighton

Lured by an eerie green glow in the old, abandoned lighthouse, Skye Thistle discovers a forgotten spyglass. One look can’t hurt… Or can it?

After Skye is catapulted to a strange world filled with goblins, orcs and other creatures she thought only existed in fairy tales, she has to overcome her fears and prejudices. When she learns that this world is being overcome by a dark force, she sets to help her newfound friends fight against the rising darkness.

But can Skye fulfill an ancient prophecy, and be the glimmer of hope in a war against evil?

If you like the dark mythology and fantastical worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien and Garth Nix, you’ll love The Spyglass and the Cherry Tree – the debut novel in Matt Beighton’s Shadowland Chronicles. Travel to Ithilmir: a magical realm filled with creatures of darkness, and join Skye Thistle as she becomes trapped by the mysticism and prophecies set to guide her future.
