There is no pre-booking for the Waterstones’ events – just come along and join the queue. For Foyles, you may register for a Priority Queue ticket, which will also enter you into a draw for some fun prizes. Visit the Foyles site for details of their event and how to register for the competition:

As well as Conjuror, you may also bring John and Carole’s other books for signing at these events. They will not sign other items, such as DVDs, CDs or action figures. You may take photos while in the queue but please do not ask John and Carole to pose for photos with you as time at the events is limited, and this would mean that some fans would not be able to have their books signed.

ABOUT CONJUROR:
Seventeen-year-old Rémy Dupree Rush is the last of his kind. He’s a Conjuror, a descendant of an ancient African bloodline that can change reality with music. Seventeen-year-old twins, Matt and Em Calder, are the most powerful of their kind. They are Animare, descendants of an ancient order of artists whose imaginations can bring art to life and travel through paintings. Malevolent forces that only a Conjuror can stop are rising in the world. Rémy must enlist the Calder twins’ help to battle them.

Reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and the Atlantic slave trade, this supernatural thriller sprints from the streets of Chicago across the rooftops of central London to the art galleries of Glasgow and the highlands of Scotland, ending in a mind-blowing clash in southern Spain where (with help from the artist, Caravaggio) Rémy, Matt and Em confront an evil conceived in chaos at the beginning of time.

Conjuror will be published in the UK by Head of Zeus on 5 May and is now available for pre-order from Waterstones, Amazon and other booksellers.
