Publisher: LJ Lawry Books
This is the first book in the George Grove series. It starts with three twelve year old boys in South London, a secret and an abandoned dragon's egg. The ordinary reality of the Inner City provides a cover for the boys, their friends and acquaintances as they are increasingly embroiled in a magical battle between ICE (Initiates in the Control of the Esoteric) and the Harbingers of DoOM (Destruction of Ordinary Magic). It all goes spectacularly and hilariously wrong when their parents, teachers and the police start to get involved and the dragon's not too happy either. LJ Lawry takes the edges off reality and shifts them slightly, coaxing the reader to join the start of a fantastical, magical journey through London and beyond, into a realm of wild imagination and the birthplace of ideas. ...
