Legend of the Lost
by Ian P Buckingham
Published by the Book Guild, £7.99, Waterstones.
Years of living in and around Berkhamsted and spending hours on walks with his children inspired the Hertfordshire setting for Ian’s debut book, Legend of the Lost. The first in a magical adventure series, it follows the adventures of the Savage family as they battle to reunite after a tragedy tore them apart. It takes them from the coast of Cornwall to the mighty Ashridge Forest, where they meet mythical creatures, as they battle to fight the dark forces that threaten to destroy their kingdom.
Children aged 7-11 will love this epic adventure – and you can see whether you recognise any of the places as they make their way through Ashridge!
