The Spiral Maze is Bow’s most ambitious novel so far, combining the pace and tension of the best adventure stories, with a brilliant conceived &quotother world&quot which in fact grew from the warped imagination of the protagonist’s undead, tyrranical ancestor.

The Spiral Maze invites students to consider the themes of identity and responsibility while it entertains in high order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Spiral Maze The Spiral Maze is a story of two worlds as close to each other as the skin to an apple, and as far from each other as the smallest star you can see at night. One of those worlds is ours. The other grew from the dark and twisted mind of a man who should have been dead a century ago -- but isn't. The way between the worlds is the Spiral Maze, a swirl of yew hedges on a hill top. A quiet, dusty, claustrophobic place by day; by dusk, a place of changes, where the searchers become the hunted. Into the maze go Neil and his friend Fleur, following the shade of Neil's long-dead twin, Jasper. Their mission is to rescue Charlotte, a girl who has been imprisoned by Neil's great-great-uncle Dexter at the heart of the maze for more than a century. But even if they can find their way through, there is the problem of getting back. The reader is enchanted from the first line. The prose is sure and evocative; there is a refreshingly firm grip on all the characters. The Spiral Maze is a thriller for anyone over ten years old.
