For fans of the Apothecary series and The Doldrums comes the first in a fantasy trilogy where a city beneath London hides objects endowed with magical powers!
When officers brandishing toilet brushes arrive at their door, eleven-year-old Ivy Sparrow and her older brother, Seb, go tumbling into Lundinor, a secret underground city. The siblings find themselves in a world of enchantment, where uncommon people, alive and dead, trade in uncommon goods—belts that enable the wearer to fly, yo-yos that turn into weapons, buttons with curative properties, and other enchanted objects capable of extraordinary feats.
But the charm wears thin when Ivy and Seb learn that their family is connected to one of the greatest uncommon treasures of all time—and if they don’t find it, their parents’ lives are forfeit. It’s a race against time as Ivy and Seb attempt to unearth the treasure and rescue their parents.
Debut novelist Jennifer Bell delivers a world of wonder and whimsy in the start of a richly uncommon series.
“Bell’s world is part Tim Burton, part J.K. Rowling, infusing everyday objects with new life…This is a terrific debut, perfect for kids who can’t keep up with their own imaginations.” —Soman Chainani, Author of the School for Good and Evil series
