An amazing and very atmospheric yarn for good readers - probably 12+ - who love the scarier side of life! Set in Stuart London at the time of the Great Fire, it combines historical facts and characters with dark magic and mysticism - and a ripping good storyline. The main characters - Jem, Ann and Tolly (and Cleo the Monkey!)- are strong and easy for youngsters to identify with, and the scary characters truly are! It's good to see that a sequel is planned as I'm sure many readers will want to share more adventures.
