Mary Lennox is a sad and sickly girl. She acts bitter to everyone around her, and doesn’t mind that she doesn’t have friends; she doesn’t need them. When she moves to a dark, gloomy manor to live with her uncle, she has no interest in exploring her new home – until she learns that there is a secret, locked garden somewhere on the grounds. In this new adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved novel, The Secret Garden is a beautiful story of a young girl learning to care for herself by caring for the world around her, and a reminder that the darkest of gloominess can be swept away with a little love and care.Show more
She’s the Minister of Magickal Sciences. She’s also a witch. How then could a simple disappearance leave her outmatched? Kate Finch feels like an imposter—even though she’s as well versed in the unseen arts as anyone. Between the secrets she keeps and the unending gossip swirling around her, even she’s beginning to wonder if she’s up for the job. The chance to prove herself comes when her most vocal critic approaches her with a mystery stranger than any she’s known: a woman both dead and undead; unquiet spirits immune to her witchcraft; signs of a deadly realm of ghosts. Into this riddle steps a rival Kate never expected: the only other witch in the Colonies. Can Kate unlock the secret of the dead while staying one step ahead of a sociopathic rival? Will she uncover the unseen hand at work behind the uncanny magic? And can she prove to her detractors—and to herself—she’s worthy of the office she holds? Magic, mystery, and the infernal come alive in this sharp and intricate fantasy novel from the author of The Books of Conjury.Show more
