Agatha Christie in a Harry Potter World

Oona Crate is a natural magician and the magician's apprentice, living in Dark Street, a divorced part of the land of Faerie. The magician, her uncle is the guardian of the gate between the land of Faerie and the real world. But what happens if a lot of dresses gets stolen from the boutique in Dark Street and culminates in the abduction or maybe murder of her uncle through magical means?

Oona, who have just relinquished her position as the magician's apprentice, are given a chance to solve the mystery in true Agatha Christie style. Oona gets a chance to be a real detective.

Shawn Thomas Odyssey applies the old recipe of a murder mystery to the fantasy drama. In the end the question is if you as listener can figure out who is the criminal. It is almost as if you are playing Cluedo using Audible. The surprises in the end are few, but the idea is intriguing. Furthermore, it must be said that the book probably has a adolescent reader and listenership in the eye.

Shawn Thomas Odyssey does a marvellous job when reading his book.

If you have read all your Agatha Christie mysteries and yearns for more, don't fear Oona Crate is here!

Great story, great entertainment.

Our protagonist, Oona Crate, is smart but troubled by tragedies in her past. She has clever helpers, a crow who carries all the world's knowledge in it's scattered brain, and an elf.

She lives on the border between our world and fairyland. She has a dilemma to face - to go on developing her talents as a wizard or become a detective which she dearly desires.

This is the story of how circumstances force her to face her fears and move forward. A wonderful growing up story, told charmingly.

The story is fresh, original, and convoluted enough to make it a satisfying mystery.
