The Song of the Quarkbeast

Jasper Fforde

"Big Magic," which had been in a serious decline in the Ununited Kingdom, returned at the end of The Last Dragonslayer (2012). Now, in the sequel, magical power is once again on the rise. The despotic King Snodd IV hopes to cash in by putting the wizards who work for 16-year-old Jennifer Strange at Kazam Mystical Arts Management under his control. Her unpredictable crew of sorcerers stands little chance against the king and his cronies. Challenged to a magic duel that will decide their fate, Jennifer and her lovable cast of misfits must rely more on wits than on wands to preserve their independence.
