Ali Sparkes is the author of lots of children’s books including the award winning Frozen in Time, and the Monster Makers, Shapeshifter and S.W.I.T.C.H. series.

She’s also a journalist and BBC broadcaster who regularly exploits her sons, as an in-house focus group for her children’s novels. She reckons it’s a fair trade for being used as a walking food and drink vending machine.

Ali was a local newspaper reporter and columnist before joining BBC Radio Solent as a producer and presenter and then chucked in the safe job to be dangerously freelance and write scripts and manuscripts. Her first venture was as a comedy columnist on Woman’s Hour and later on Home Truths.

She grew up adoring adventure stories about kids who mess about in the woods and still likes to mess about in the woods herself whenever possible. Ali lives with her husband and two sons in Southampton.

    i think this book is a brilliant read but the downside is that you have to have read the shapeshifter series(finding the fox, running the risk, gone to ground, dowsing the dead, stirring the storm) before you read this or it won’t make any sense, they are epic anyway(look on amazon because they are not on here, dosent mean there not good!!!) don’t know what the price is because i got it out the libray READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This book is another amazing one by Ali Sparkes.

    The Unleashed series is a follow-up from the Shapeshifter series, where Dax’s friends tell about their adventures.

    In this book, Lisa and Mia are on a shopping trip in London. When a girl is kidnapped, Lisa tries to help with her gift. But it goes wrong, and she is the one in danger.

    This book is thrilling, and I’ve read it a number of times!
