Shadowland: The Brotherhood Of The Conch Book 3

Anand, the hero of the Brotherhood of the Conch series, now fifteen, is settling back into his life as an apprentice in the lush Silver Valley, nestled in the Himalayas. But suddenly his adopted home is reduced to a barren wasteland when his beloved conch, the valley's source of magical energy, is stolen by an unknown force. Together with his friend Nisha, Anand embarks on what may be his most dangerous mission travelling to the cold and forbidding world of Shadowland in his attempt to restore the conch to its rightful place, and his home to its original splendour.
