Shades of Red


After the success of Seeds of Time and Secret of Light, kc dyer returns with Shades of Red, the final instalment in the Eagle Glen Trilogy.

Darrell is back in the twenty-first century and back at Eagle Glen school. But her last trip through time was disastrous: her arch-enemy, Conrad Kennedy, slipped through with Darrell and her friends … and apparently met his demise. But when the gang travels to the time of the Spanish Inquisition, Darrell discovers that Conrad may have survived. Her quest to right a wrong takes her to England during the reign of Henry VIII, where she becomes a confidant of the ill-fated Anne Boleyn. With lives in peril, the story dramatically concludes at the Tower of London.


"OMG! What can I say? This was an awe-inspiring book - no words to describe it! Go buy it, right now! My serious opinion is that this book was one of my all time favourites. I loved it. It's thrilling, it's detailed, and it totally draws you in. I actually ended up crying at one point; yes, it can happen! I would give it a gazillion stars, but since our reviews are out of 5, then I give it FIVE EXPLODING STARS! Rachael (age 12) KIdsWWwrite Issue #46 - December 2005

"I thoroughly enjoyed Shades of Red ... Dyer has crafted a clever, fast moving premise to this historical time fantasy series that will appeal to young teens and their history teachers! I am now eagerly waiting to start Secret of Light, the second title in the series.
Highly recommended."
