A brilliant story of adventure, wit and philosophy from the origins of the SPELLSLINGER series to enrapture devotees as well as newcomers alike. New to the ways of the Argosi, the tribe of wandering philosophers who seek to defeat evil by wit and guile, Ferius Parfax encounters a hideous plague - the Red Scream. Highly contagious, caught by the hearing of a deadly verse, it turns its victims into mindless monsters that destroy all human life they come into contact with. With the help of a deaf boy whom she has saved from two horrifying victims of the plague, she sets out to find the source of the Red Scream and overcome it's terrifying power. Along the way she is joined by another Argosi, Rosie, who purports to be so much wiser and more adept than Ferius, but who turns out to have her own dark secrets. Peopled with extraordinary characters and gut-wrenching drama, Ferius's story teaches her hard lessons about the limits of the Argosi's ways. Readers will delight not just in this amazing masterclass in plot pacing and narrative drive, but in the seemingly bottomless well of wit, thought and wisdom that the story brings up and that has changed lives down the ages. It takes the reader on a journey like no other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In the second of the Spellslinger origins series, can our compelling heroine Ferius stop the 'Red Scream', a dangerous and infectious curse that threatens to turn everyone it encounters into killer zombies? Determined to stop the curse at its source, Ferius is joined by a new companion - Rosie - a complex character with a dark past. Compelling and fast-paced, this is a YA novel that will linger and force the reader to consider the nuances of right and wrong. -- Tom Tolkien * School Reading List, Voted Fiction Book of November *

“Gripping addition to this highly successful series...”

It turns out that I’ve missed out on the first book charting Ferius’s adventures – Way of the Argosi – something I’ll need to rectify soon, as I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the Spellslinger novels so far. But I didn’t... More
