Shortly after saving the faeries of Skemantis, magician’s apprentice Felix Carmer III and his faerie companion, Grit, head out to see the world. They soon come across a mysteriously magical flying circus. As they get to know the outlandish world of Rinka Tinka’s Roving Wonder Show, it becomes clear there's something not quite normal about this circus or its inventor–and that recent airship disasters plaguing nearby Driftside City may have a sinister explanation.
Fans of the Wildwood trilogy and Lockwood & Co. series will love the thrills and chills of Carmer and Grit, Book 2: The Crooked Castle as it takes readers up in the air with a flying circus, under the sea to the evil Unseelie kingdom, through a terrifying magical snowstorm, and on a chase with the menacing Wild Hunt.
About the Author
Praise For Carmer and Grit, Book Two: The Crooked Castle…
“Even richer in detail and full of undersea and high-flying adventure and danger. Grit and Carmer are recognizable from the previous story, but they continue to grow as they make hard decisions and learn more about the world . . . a well-plotted, magical adventure.”
—School Library Journal
“A rollicking fantasy ride. Grit, Carmer, and Bell are appealing characters who almost meet their match in the evil counterparts here; but, in the end, justice prevails. Fans of The Wingsnatchers will not be disappointed.”
“I would recommend this book if you like a good mysterious fairytale adventure.”
