Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine weaves a thrilling tale of mystery in this companion to A Tale of Two Castles.

Elodie, the dragon detective Meenore, and the kindly ogre Count Jonty Um are all on their way to Elodie’s home island of Lahnt. Elodie has barely set foot on land before she learns that the Replica, a statue that keeps her island’s deadly volcano from erupting, has been stolen. If the Replica isn’t found in three days, a mountain will be destroyed. And when Elodie ends up alone with a cast of characters—any of whom may be guilty—she has to use her wits to unravel a tangled web of lies.

New York Times bestselling author Gail Carson Levine has written an imaginative, fast-paced mystery that will be enjoyed by fans of A Tale of Two Castles, as well as those meeting Elodie, Meenore, and Count Jonty Um for the first time.

    Horn Book

  • “The writing is consistently engaging, and the story’s deliberate pace will encourage kids to observe the characters and solve the mystery before all is revealed. A satisfying mixture of fantasy, mystery, and adventure.”

    Booklist

  • Stolen Magic, the sequel to A Tale of Two Castles, follows the events of the first book but can easily be read without having met any of the characters before…Stolen Magic is best suited for young, tween readers and younger.”

    VOYA

  • “The blend of mystery and fantasy with an overlay of romanticized medieval society is interesting…Devotees of Ella Enchanted and A Tale of Two Castles will relish the excitement.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Offers a detailed magical world, high-stakes action, and arch observations of family tensions and racial divides. The unusual blend of magical medieval mystery and disaster lite…[is] effervescent.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Thanks to narrator Sarah Coomes’ steadfast characterizations, listeners can distinguish the varied characters in the second journey of young Elodie; the dragon detective, Meenore; and the shape-shifting ogre, Count Jonty Om…Coomes’s vocal switches seem effortless. As Elodie moves between being an inquisitive character in the story and being its confident first-person narrator, Coomes pulls the listener in.”
