In the centre of the freezing Lake Beluarum stands an inescapable asylum, enclosed by the sheer cliffs of Drop Rock island.
When Ambrose Grammaticus, famous inventor and master engineer, viciously attacks his own son, Rex, he is hauled to the island and imprisoned. Rex knows his evil stepmother, Acantha, is behind his father's 'madness', but how can he prove it? Only the asylum holds the answers…
I have been looking forward to hearing this for a long time, and wasn't disappointed with it.
Very much liked the fact that it tied in slightly with the first book, The Black Book of Secrets
