"A spellbinding fantasy "

It is 1984, 40 years since four children stepped through a magical library door into the enchanted world of Folio in The Last Magician. Now it is Patricia's daughter, Jewel, who makes a mysterious discovery in an old bookshop, embarking on a quest with a wonderfully acerbic hamster and a malfunctioning robot. A spellbinding fantasy with some pertinent warnings about our addiction to technology. The series was conceived as an ode to Narnia, and while no knowledge of it is necessary, fans will enjoy the echoes of The Silver Chair here.
