Librarians’ Choice Favourite
The spooky atmosphere of Stranger Things meets Northern Lights in this dark and magical fantasy adventure. Fifteen years ago, Jane Doe and her father arrived on the steps of the Manor, the entrance to a dangerous labyrinth connecting the island of Bluehaven to many other worlds.
