As a fan of GP Taylor's dark fantasy stories (e.g. the Shadowmancer trilogy) this is an absolute steal at, yes £1, in Poundland. Written as Childrens' novels, they are still very readable for adults.
Plenty in stock in the Trowbridge branch.
This is the hardback edition in the orginal faber and faber print, not some cheap re-licensed edition.
Original RRP of £9.99. Currently £6.49 at Amazon and £7.14 at the Bokk Depository
Some quotes from reviews:-
"When Harry Potter hangs up his wizard's cloak, booksellers will be looking to GP Taylor's Mariah Mundi - The Midas Box, to keep the cashtills ringing."
"The book that combines the big story of CS Lewis and the plot of an Indiana Jones movie.We could genuinely be looking at the book series that will replace Harry Potter at the top of every child's wish list."
"It really is wonderful, wonderful stuff...Mariah Mundi surpasses Potter on just about every level there is. Highly recommended."
"It was a brilliant book and I definitely want to read the next book."
Tori Garbutt - NY Times
