A work of outstanding imagination, this is a fantastic adventure set in a time not too far in the future where things are almost the same as we know them but also just a little bit different. Garland Maddigan, the 12 year old daughter of the Fantasia Circus ring master, sets off on an unusual journey which takes her through the land of the Witch-Finder. A thrilling read.

For three mysterious children have joined the Fantasia - children with uncanny abilities and a secret past. Soon, she finds herself embroiled in a series of terrifying adventures.


'Vividly imagined and written with a shimmering intensity.' The Observer

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
