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.

This is perfect reading for children intrigued by magic and history. The story will appeal to strong readers with a passion for a fast plot and evil villain. Highly recommended.

Full of mystery and well described characters. Gave a feeling of restoration England. Would recommend this book for its good plot and vivid descriptions.

Though perhaps a little derivative in some details, this is a great debut by Cate Cain which will delight young and old readers alike.
