Caro King studied Art and has had a variety of jobs since then, including working at the office of the official receiver and as a greengrocer's assistant. Seven Sorcerers came from a rainy lunchtime when she began mapping out the world of the Drift. Skerridge and his waistcoat came later. She lives in Croydon.
Gr 4-5-This sequel to Seven Sorcerers (S & S, 2011) finds Ninevah Redstone still in The Drift on a quest to find mysterious Simeon Dark's mansion and with it the secret to saving the fantasy world she has come to know and love from the evil Strood. This already complicated premise is further muddled by an army of supporting characters and subplots, some of which are humorous and some that are scary. Readers who enjoyed the first book will enjoy seeing the story to its end, but it cannot stand on its own. Worth purchasing where the earlier book has a following.-Ricca Gaus, New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
