A thrilling tale of adventure, and an opportunity for young readers to meet acclaimed children’s author Philip Womack. The Double Axe is the first of Philip’s Blood and Fire series. Dark forces are at work: Stephan, the thirteen-year-old son of King Minos of Crete, stumbles across a terrifying conspiracy. Is the Minotaur, a half man half bull who eats human flesh, real? Or is something even more dangerous threatening to engulf both the palace and the world?
Philip Womack read Classics and English at Oriel College, Oxford. He reviews for Literary Review, The Guardian, The Spectator, TLS and The Telegraph, and has appeared on radio and television. He teaches Latin and Greek, and has lectured on mythology for the How: To Academy. He is the author of The Other Book and The Liberators (The Daily Telegraph, Children’s Books of the Year 2010) “…blend of action and philosophising will ensure a big following.” The Sunday Telegraph. And recently The Broken King “conjure[s] an eerie poetry of the subconscious, a kind of Alice in Terrorland.” The Financial Times and The King’s Shadow (both a The Guardian Children’s Books of the Year 2015)
