A breathtaking adventure for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be gripped by this magical and hugely original mystery.

Stretching from the jungles of Calcutta to the sewers of Paris, this extraordinary adventure mixes magic and mystery in a winning combination that will leave young readers on the edge of their seats!


Zélie is often accused of being a witch, but she doesn't believe in magic. Until Jules climbs up from the reeking Parisian sewer and hands Zélie the golden locket he discovered there. The locket once held the magical Snakestone, and Zélie knows that if she can find the stone, she might also find her missing father.

But a dangerous secret society are equally desperate to get their hands on the Snakestone and its powers. With their lives under threat, Zélie and Jules embark on a desperate hunt for the treasure, facing strange riddles, a mysterious circus, and the miles of murky tunnels that twist beneath the ancient city above...

Piu DasGupta was born in Calcutta and grew up in India and the UK. She studied at Oxford University and subsequently worked in several serious professions and places before following a long-nurtured dream to be a writer in a garret in Paris.
