Being able to detect black magic isn't all tea and crumpets, and for Theodosia Throckmorton, it can be a decidedly tricky business! When Sticky Will drags Theo to a magic show featuring the Great Awi Bubu, she quickly senses there is more to the magician than he lets on, setting in motion a chain of events she never could have bargained for.
Meanwhile, back at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, Henry is home for the spring holidays and makes an accidental discovery of an artifact that alchemists have been hunting for centuries. Soon, every black-cloaked occultist in London is trying to get their hands on it.
Spend some more time with Theodosia.

"Once again, supernaturally talented Theodosia navigates around her etiquette-obsessed grandmother and absentminded parents in a suspenseful, satisfying fantasy that’s filled with the specifics of magical ritual sure to delight readers who miss the goings-on at Hogwarts." (Booklist)
The vivid descriptions and wonderful story
creative and believable
Wonderful now awaiting the next book I already have the hardback copy and really can't wait for the audiobook
This is the third book in the series, they are best read in sequence. We enjoyed all the unexpected twists and turns. Not only is it an excellent mystery/mythology novel. It also has great friendship, family and trust themes. My nine year old daughter loved the series.
If you enjoyed this; we recommend The Bartimaeus trilogy, or try a bit of a step up to the Eola Holmes series.
We have a 30 minute drive to school, and listen to audio books to fill the time. This is the third in the Theodosia series and was great as always. My 8 year old daughter loves these types of historical fiction books. Sad the fourth book isn't on Audible yet. Also check out the Kane Chronicles series if you like these.
A well crafted story great use of language an story intelligently told not patronising to its young audience
several they are all great
please record book 4
