Teenage Book of the Month

Move by Conor Kostick
Published by The O’Brien Press Ltd., 2008

Kostick’s two first novels, Epic and Saga have been published to worldwide acclaim. Described as futuristic fantasy books, they have both been shortlisted for Reading Association of Ireland Awards.

Move introduces us to the character Liam O’Dwyer who has the unusual advantage of moving between very different universes. If he has any difficulties where he is, he can move to an alternative place where everything will be just as he wants. But having everything comes at a price. Each time Liam changes universe the fabric of the Metaverse tears, leaving him susceptible to the forces of evil.

He becomes embroiled in a fierce struggle when he is forced to tackle a frightening creature from Hell in an effort to save himself and those around him.

For older children and teenagers who like science fiction and fantasy, be prepared to be sucked into “a thriller roller coaster ride from an award-winning author.”
