Prince of Hazel and Oak Paperback
by John Lenahan
Part of the Shadowmagic series
The eagerly-awaited sequel to Shadowmagic. Having returned to the real world from Tir Na Nog at the end of the last book, our hero Conor finds himself arrested for the murder of his father.
When he explains to the cops that his dad is safe and well and enjoying life as king of a land of elves, imps and banshees they understandably think he is a nutcase.
That is until he is rescued by Celtic warriors on horseback and taken back to Tir Na Nog, accidentally bringing a policeman with him.
Once safely back in The Land, Conor finds that all is not well.
His father is dying, the girl he loves is betrothed to another and a rather confused American cop is wandering around causing havoc.
It falls to our young hero, and his band of friends, to find a cure for the king.
On their epic journey they encounter one of the most mystical and dangerous races in The Land, the shapeshifting Pooka, and find their fates linked in ways they could never have imagined.
The Prince of Hazel and Oak is a stunning fantasy adventure that takes fans of Shadowmagic further in to the land and brings back many of the favourite characters from the first book.

Review by ReadingWench
I listened to the free "podiobook" version from podiobooks.com.<br/> <br/>There isn't anything different to say about The Prince of Hazel and Oak that I've already said about Shadowmagic. I'm still a huge fan of John Lenahan and his books, and the "podiobook" format. The third book in the Shadowmagic series, The Sons of Macha, isn't available as a "podiobook", and I haven't seen it offered as an audiobook anywhere, either, so I was a little sad when The Prince of Hazel and Oak came to an end. My next audiobook has some fierce competition.<br/><br/>If you've already taken my recommendation to listen to Shadowmagic, then listen to the "podiobook" version of this book as well. You won't be disappointed. I've already got The Sons of Macha as an ebook, and I can't wait to find the time to read it.
