Effie Truelove has made a promise to keep her grandfather's magical books safe from danger. Whatever it takes. But it's not always easy when you're a pupil at the Tusitala School for the Gifted, Troubled and Strange.
Together with her new school friends, Maximilian, Wolf, Lexy and Raven, Effie must travel to the mysterious Otherworld and brave the terrifying Diberi, a secret organisation with plans that could destroy the entire universe.

Best children's book we've listened to in ages. Other worlds, magic, nicely pictured, dark enough without being scary.

A different childrens magic story
Interesting story, characters and world. Comparisons to Harry Potter are far off the mark though.
The writing is sometimes not the best and the character jumps between chapters can be jarring at times. The strength of the book though is in the world building and the story taking some unexpected turns.
It does get a bit dark and parts like girls "liking" a dragon can be a bit weird for a childrens book.
Narration is ok but i found the lack in variety in the voices a bit confusing.
The production is not great with the time between lines cut too short. readers have to catch our breath too!
