A terrific tale of danger and daring!
Felix is safe in England, but he can’t help feeling restless, the spirit of adventure is calling him, and it’s time to escape from boarding school and set sail.
Vanquishing vagabonds is all in a day’s work, but he faces a greater evil in the form of the demonic abbot Vespasian, who seeks to destroy him. Felix must use all of his courage and wits to survive his greatest challenge yet.
Joan Aiken is a marvel.
