Description

With the plague of bogles in Victorian London barely contained, bogle hunter Alfred Bunce needs all the help he can get. So Ned Roach becomes a bogler’s apprentice, luring child-eating monsters from their lairs just like his friends Jem and Birdie. It’s dangerous work that takes Ned into mysterious and hidden parts of the city. Yet times in London are changing; as the machine age emerges, the very existence of bogles is questioned, and the future of bogling is in jeopardy. And the stakes get even higher for the team of boglers when an old enemy appears—a threat that may be deadlier than any bogle.


Praise For The Last Bogler (How to Catch a Bogle #3)

"Fans of How to Catch a Bogle (rev. 9/13) and A Plague of Bogles (rev. 1/15) will appreciate Jinks’s accessible prose, colorful with Victorian slang (glossary included); her inventive, briskly paced plot; and the gloom and charm of this trilogy-ender’s quasi-Victorian setting."
—Horn Book

"...the conclusion of this trilogy will satisfy thrillseekers and armchair philosophers alike."
—Bulletin

"Fans of this richly atmospheric adventure trilogy, which began with the riveting How to Catch a Bogle (2013), won’t want to miss the final volume."
—Booklist

"The final book of the trilogy contains everything that made the first two so appealing: finely drawn characters and engaging action sequences all set in the richly described Victorian setting."
—School Library Journal
