'Real life' or the death-defying adventures of the Greek myths, with their heroes and monsters, daring deeds and narrow escapes — which would you choose?

For Phoenix it's easy'. He hates his new home and the new school where he is bullied. He's embarrassed by his computer geek dad. But when he logs onto The Legendeer, the game his dad is working on, he can be a hero. He is Theseus fighting the terrifying Minotaur, or Perseus battling with snake-haired Medusa.

The trouble is The Legendeer is more than just a game. Play it if you dare.

Shadow of the Minotaur is the first book in the Legendeer trilogy.

This audio book is read by the author.

McCarthy's tale of his hilarious trip around Ireland has gained thousands of fans all over the world.

Pete was born in Warrington to an Irish mother and an English father and spent happy summer holidays in Cork. Years later, reflecting on the many places he has visited as a travel broadcaster, Pete admits that he feels more at home in Ireland than anywhere. To find out whether this is due to rose-coloured spectacles or to a deeper tie with the country of his ancestors, Pete sets off on a trip around Ireland and discovers that it has changed in surprising ways.
