Exciting sequel to Howl's Moving Castle does not disappoint
on 8 January 2002
'Castle in the Air' is Diana Wynne Jones' sequel to the marvelous 'Howl's Moving Castle'. Far from being just an update of the previous story, 'Castle in the Air' introduces us to brand new characters right from the start. The story takes us on an action-packed adventure with new protagonists Abdullah and Flower-in-the-Night, before meeting up with Howl and Sophie towards the latter part of their journey. A variety of twists and turns guide the plot, with plenty of sorcery and a few laughs thrown in for good measure. Highly entertaining as a story in its own right, and for fans of Howl, this will not disappoint.
