Waterstones Says

Kenny’s intelligent, empathetic gothic fantasy series continues, as monsters descend on Rookhaven for The Great Configuration and Mirabelle discovers that her part-human heritage makes her an outsider to many esteemed guests.

Shadows are gathering over Rookhaven.

It is the time of The Great Configuration, a once in a hundred years event. Family and monsters descend on Rookhaven from all over the country to take part. But amid the guests there is an interloper. One who is disguised and has an eye on their destruction.

Meanwhile Mirabelle - part human, part monster - discovers that to those from outside Rookhaven she is not considered family at all... and, forced to search further afield for knowledge of her true history, she risks everything - and everyone.

“A wildly imaginative story of family and friiendship”

Up until very recently, I was the sort of person who would always start a series with the first title in the sequence, fearing some sort of divine retribution if I failed to do so. As I’ve read and reviewed more... More
