The Chosen Ones Zusammenfassung

The Chosen Ones Scarlett Thomas

THERE IS MAGIC BEYOND THE REALWORLD . . . EFFIE TRUELOVE has learned to travel through magical books to the Otherworld. MAXIMILIAN UNDERWOOD, Effie's classmate, is more interested in the dark and forbidden Underworld. When Effie and Maximilian both mysteriously vanish, their friends Raven, Lexy and Wolf don't know where to turn for help. Raven is a witch and her horse, Echo, has revealed that Effie is in deep danger and time is running out. To make things worse, Raven's mother, the author Laurel Wilde, is caught up in a plot with the ruthless billionaire Albion Freake, who, it seems, will stop at nothing to become invincible . . . Where are Effie and Maximilian? Are their disappearances connected? And can Albion Freake's deadly plan be stopped?

Über Scarlett Thomas

Scarlett Thomas has always loved stories, magic and mysterious places. She tried (and failed) to write her first novel when she was six. Since then she has successfully written lots of novels, but this is her first series for children. She lives near the sea in an old house full of books, and is a professor in the English department of the University of Kent. The Chosen Ones is the second volume in the Worldquake Sequence.
