A stunning magical adventure for readers aged 8+

Young readers will love the magical storytelling in this entertaining adventure by Hana Tooke

We loved the mysterious, gothic-inspired European setting of this rich fantasy adventure. It's a witty and playful story, perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone and Katherine Rundell.


Ema Vašková has always felt different. In a family of famous scientists, there's not much room for superstition or omens - but they seem to follow Ema wherever she goes. It doesn't help that she appears to predict events before they happen, and has a peculiar fear of shadows . . .

When Ema is sent to stay with her eccentric uncle in Prague, she fears she'll lose the chance to ever fit in. But then she meets Silvie - a girl who finally sees Ema for the extraordinary person that she is. Soon the girls are meeting for secret midnight adventures, and facing Ema's fears together.

But then disaster strikes. Silvie goes missing - and it's up to Ema to find her. Now she must gather the courage to hunt the city, find her friend, and uncover the secrets of the one clue Silvie left as to where she might be - inside the mysterious Midnight Guild . . .

Hana Tooke grew up in Amsterdam and now lives in Bath. She has previously worked as a singer, a teacher and even a mad scientist.
