Publisher's Summary

There is magic beyond the real world.... 

Effie Truelove has learned to travel through magical books to the Otherworld. Maximillian Underwood, Effie's classmate, is more interested in the dark and forbidden Underworld. When Effie and Maximilian both mysteriously vanish, their friends Raven, Lexy and Wolf don't know where to turn for help. Raven is a witch, and her horse, Echo, has revealed that Effie is in deep danger and time is running out. 

To make things worse, Raven's mother, the author Laurel Wilde, is caught up in a plot with the ruthless billionaire Albion Freake, who will stop at nothing to become invincible. Where are Effie and Maximilian? Are their disappearances connected? And can Albion Freake's deadly plan be stopped?

A solid sequel

I really enjoyed this. If you enjoyed the first book in the series, you'll enjoy this one as well.

Scarlet strikes again

I’m a big fan of Scarlet Thomas’ work and saw these children ‘s books as an opportunity to get some more. The second book in the series is not quite up to the first. I found this a bit muddled in parts and quite a confusing list of characters. But still very enjoyable- and picking up on her usual themes of time, reality and magic in the everyday. Competently read but I was sure about the voice representation given the age and gender of the main character. But still I give it four out if five because it’s Scarlet!

Simply brilliant

A dazzling sequel to Dragon’s Green. Scarlett Thomas excels at writing rich, layered novels, and this one is a cornucopia of pleasures for children and adults at the same time. Roger Allam is a sensitive and appreciative reader. Fabulous all round.
