The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Waterstone's Book Award 2010
With an original cast and set in the vividly imagined world of The Drift, this is an enchanting, moving and thoughtful fantasy. When Ninevah wakes up to find that her brother has vanished she knows that only she will be able to set about saving him. She must avoid the trickery of Skerridge the Bogeyman and his quick route to the House of Strood. Instead, she escapes to The Drift where she and her brother encounter the secrets in the world of the Seven Sorcerers.
Seven Sorcerers by Caro King
Nin had never liked Wednesdays, but this one took the biscuit. On this Wednesday she woke up to find that it was raining buckets and that her brother had ceased to exist. Nin realizes she is the only person to remember Toby because whoever took him is about to make her disappear too. Enter Skerridge the Bogeyman, who steals kids for Mr. Strood. With his spindle, he draws all memories of Nin out of her mother's head. She escapes to the Drift, a land filled with the fabulous and the dreadful. What is the sorcerers' secret and will Nin and Toby escape their fate at the House of Strood?
'A richly inventive fantasy - gripping, intricate, sometimes melancholy, occasionally gruesome, but quickened with deft touches of humour.'
'Rich with extraordinary incident and a whole new perspective on bogeymen... a vivid evocation of a place peopled with strange beings and immersed in magic. Who could ask for more?'
'A contender for great openings of the year... truly moving and involving.'
