Description
With humans threatened by otherworldly creatures, orphans Emily and William Snow, and their friends the pickpocket Spring-Heeled Jack and the wisecracking Corrigan find themselves two hundred years in the past, trapped in the London of 1666. Desperately in need of help, they go in search of Sir Christopher Wren, who was head of the Invisible Order, an organization dedicated to fighting this threat. But Wren's never even heard of the Order and has no interest in their story.
Stranded, the four cannot agree on their next step. But they ll have to decide quickly, because their enemies are on the move and the Fire King is ready to attack and burn London to the ground.
Set against the Great Fire of London, "The Invisible Order, Book Two: The Fire King" picks up right where "Rise of the Darklings" left off, weaving adventure, history, and legend into a thrilling, heart-stopping story.


About the Author
Paul Crilley is a native of Scotland, but moved to South Africa when he was young. Once there, he was disappointed that it did not look the way he had imagined Africa from stories and movies, but will admit that monkeys often steal his food and chatter at him, so perhaps it isn t that different after all.

Paul is the author of the first book of The Invisible Order series, " Rise of the Darklings," and is currently working on another novel. You can visit him online at www.paulcrilley.com."
