The Great Fox Illusion

Justyn Edwards graduated from Southampton University with a degree in archaeology. Since then he has worked as a caravan park attendant, a paperboy and a software engineer, but never as an archaeologist. He has always wanted to be a writer and his inspiration for The Great Fox Illusion.

Justin magicked himself into the reading corner and talked to Nikki Gamble about his writing secrets. Of course, if you listen in, they won’t be secret anymore.

About The Great Fox Illusion
Secrets and illusions abound as a group of young magicians compete for the prize of a lifetime in this gripping adventure, the first in an enthralling new series from debut author Justyn Edwards.

Magic is about dreaming what is impossible and making it possible. It’s the innocent young mind in all of us that loves it. We want to be filled with wonder. We want to believe. I want the winner of this competition and the recipient of my legacy to dare to dream big. So, let The Great Fox Hunt begin.”

Thirteen-year-old Flick Lions has won a place on a new television show, in which young people compete to win the legacy of the Great Fox, one of the world’s most famous magicians. But Flick isn’t interested in uncovering the Great Fox’s tired old magic tricks – she’s after something much more important. The magician destroyed her family, and this is Flick’s only chance to put things right. Inside the Fox’s house is a secret that will change the world of magic forever, and Flick will go to any lengths to find it.
