“She (…) saw, folded inside the parcel, a piece of white paper. She opened it and a key fell out. She read the words on the paper.
‘Danger!
DO NOT ASSEMBLE.
For the journey is long and the road leads to darkness.'”
– The Clockwork Crow

“‘Welcome to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs.‘
An enormous hall greets us, and I gasp – it‘s filled with all kinds of strange sights. A flock of fairies twinkles past like floating Christmas lights (…). Witches zip by overhead on brooms (…). What in the world have I gotten myself into?”
-Amari and the Night Brothers🌌

I would recommend Long Lost to readers who enjoy reading about ghosts and about a girl discovering hidden histories in a strange new town, and who don‘t mind a simple and rather dark plot along with some very mean-spirited characters.

The Great Fox Illusion is an exciting, magic-filled adventure with an interesting main character and some surprising twists. The magic is not the supernatural kind, however, but the magic trick kind!
