    Inhaltsangabe

    A fantasy adventure about saving the universe one world at a time from Diana Wynne Jones. The companion novel to the bestselling The Merlin Conspiracy.

    Magids look after all worlds, steer them towards magic, and keep history happening. But Rupert Venables’ mentor has just died, and as the junior magid on earth he has to find a replacement while also trying to find the lost heir of a collapsing empire, worlds away.

    Rupert interweaves the fate lines to get all the candidates together at a sci-fi fantasy convention, and havoc ensues as they all converge on a very strange hotel, where everything is always linked, the walls keep moving, people are trying to kill him, and nothing is as it seems...a magical, epic story from the Godmother of fantasy.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “....Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones’s most outrageous plots to her readers’ hopes and fears....” ( Publishers Weekly)
    “Diana Wynne Jones ought to be crowned with coloured garlands because she is the best writer of magical fantasy for children in this country.” ( Evening Standard)
    “Diana Wynne Jones could teach Stephen King and JK Rowling a thing or two...[she] has a skill for inserting just the right amount of detail in her written words, leaving you satiated but not stuffed.” ( SFX)

    Excellent

    Compelling story, intelligent fantasy, really fascinating people and their development, very funny. It's the story of Rupert the Magid, Maree and young Nick who have to work together to manage some really odd situations down to the showdown during a fantasy convention. I read the book many times and it was a great joy to hear it this time. Chris Webster (the melody of his speech reminds you of David Tennant} went through every emotion and Harriet Carmichael managed to let us hear "the sob" in Marees speech - congratulations!
