  1. This book is a book for people who like mystery,magic and adventure.
    I hope you enjoy

  2. Gently humorous with lots of clever references to a fantasy version of the UK, this story centres on Jennifer Strange, a fifteen year old running an agency for magic folk. Business is failing as the magical powers appear to be waning and there is a rumour that this may be connected to the demise of the dragon population. Suddenly there is a surge and powers seem restored but this coincides with a prophecy that the last dragon is about to die, potentially terminating the magical world simultaneously. Could and should this be allowed to happen?
    A great fantasy novel with excellent characterisation and a clever interweaving of magical ideas. I particularly liked the rewiring job that Jennifer supervises near the beginning.
