That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable.
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.

Loved this charming story
This story was absolutely captivating. I bought it for my son to listen to on our commutes to school, but found I was looking forward to listening to it just as much as he was. It is charmingly written, elegant and simple. It deals with solemnity and darkness with a gentle hand and weaves together the various threads of the tale neatly. It is simplistic for an adult's ears, but still immensely enjoyable, and my 8 year old loved it, asking for it to be put on the moment he got in the car. I would listen to it over and again simply for the amazing voices of the narrator - one never exhausted of hearing his voice and the clever use of different accents and overtones. This story was more performed than told, and it suited the tale well!

Great story made better by a great narrator
Simply said, I loved everything about this book. I must be young at heart since is a YA book. The characters are wonderful, even the bad ones are fun. And the twists and turns take the reader/listener on a frenzied and fascinating journey. I was sorry when the story ended, even though it ended exactly as it should. Jim Dale was superb. He brought each character to life in a way few narrators can.
