Knights Of spears Huxley-Jones’ Welsh-myth inspired series.

Inclusive children’s publisher Knights Of has snapped up Vivi Conway and the Sword of Legend, the debut middle-grade novel by consultant, editor and non-fiction author Lizzie Huxley-Jones.

Eishar Brar, editorial director, acquired world rights for the first and second, as-yet-untitled book, from Abi Fellows at The Good Literary Agency. Publishing on 1st June 2023, Vivi Conway and the Sword of Legend will be the publisher’s middle-grade lead title for 2023.

“On the day Vivi and her Mams are due to move from Wales to London, Vivi sneaks away for a quiet swim at the lake,” the synopsis reads. “Instead, she meets a host of mystical creatures and learns she is part of a magical group of children known as enaids, who share the souls of witches from legend. But will she be brave enough to embrace true friendship and her magical destiny to help protect the world from evil?”
