Stick his neck out to save the so-called friends who betrayed him? Would you?
Archer’s reward for being the most worthy student in his graduating class is to lose his home and all his friends.
Sent from his tranquil, medieval life to aggressive, modern-day England, Archer’s mission is to report back about cars, computers and even chocolate. The other foster boys try to break his spirit by threatening him with his own bow – they have no idea they are dealing with a trained warrior. He teaches them honour, integrity and archery; they teach him how to get in trouble with the authorities.
Forced to move foster homes, things go downhill as pink-haired Mandy takes a fancy to his athletic body - his warrior defences are useless against her obnoxious wiles. She seems determined to drag Archer into the shady world of Stiff and his gang of teenage shoplifters.
"Rip roaring adventure for readers of all ages. There’s a whimsical element to this one that delights with its cocky confidence and a bemused view of the modern world by a boy out of his own time." - Book Viral
"I read the first book in this series in a day and a half, and I read this one even quicker. In this installment, Archer is sent to modern day England and has the same kind of problems with bullies that he had at home. I love the way he handles himself in some pretty horrible situations and the way he finds justice for those involved." - Andrea Domanski, Author, Crossfire
"The book has plenty of laugh out loud moments as the author uses her keen observation to wriggle out laughs from even the unlikeliest of sources. Archer is the kind of hero who inspires you to awaken the hero in you and should be a hit with readers everywhere." - Moterwriter
"Loved this book! Another excellent adventure in this series. I would recommend this to anyone interested in gripping and exciting storytelling. Great characters. Well worth a read." Paula Yourell - Author of Against the Light.
"Another of Jacky Gray's books which involve the reader to look at life's adventures through mystical all seeing eyes. Jacky's in touch with what kids and adults - after all we are all big kids - wish to read. Woven into the words as the pages unfold is a journey that we can all relate to and for me that is the magic of a good writer." - Maria Wheatly, Author and Master Dowser
