Alec’s Dad is kidnapped, his mysterious English cousin, Perrin, has gone missing, and he has found a talking book that insists the ground beneath his feet is dangerous – and alive!
Perrin has arrived at Wellingtowne Airport only to discover Ike, her cantankerous wizarding guide, has disappeared. Worse, her uncle is missing and she is all alone in the dangerous city of Wellingtowne.
Ghosts, taniwhas, magic … and a warning: “Bad men watch you”. Something is very wrong, and it’s up to the two cousins to rescue Wellingtowne & Wellington.
“You cannot trust anything this book says, it’s all too exciting to be true” – Mrs Bee
