High in the crumbling Palace of Statues, oily Vox Verlix - nominally the Most High Academe but no more than a prisoner in reality - is brewing a terrible plot to destroy the goblins and the shrykes at a stroke, leaving him free to take over once again.

Rook Barkwater, a young librarian knight, stumbles upon the truth when he is taken captive and forced to work for Vox. But can Rook foil Vox's plan and save the lives of his librarian colleagues?

Part of the Rook trilogy set 50 years later than the events of the Twig sequence - and filled with fascinating new characters and settings that will enthral fans of the series. Download and start listening now!

    " I think the whole inter series is about opening a unchecked imagination and a way to just absorb a great mind's will to create and think of crazy far out worlds of imagination that weren't thought of before. "

    " This one was a continuation of book 5. One part creepy, one part gruesome, one part adventurous, all parts entertaining. By the end of the book, the winds had changed again and I can sense something huge coming in book 7. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some more reading to do! "
