Waterstones Says

The second spellbinding instalment in the Edinburgh Nights series finds Ropa Moyo, still grappling with her newfound magical abilities, taking a job at a very special hospital where a mysterious new illness is resisting both medical and magical curatives.

Our Lady of Mysterious Ailments by T. L. Huchu is the second spellbinding book in the Edinburgh Nights series.

Some secrets are meant to stay buried.

When Ropa Moyo discovered an occult underground library, she expected great things. She's really into Edinburgh's secret societies - but turns out they are less into her. So instead of getting paid to work magic, she's had to accept a crummy unpaid internship. And her with bills to pay and a pet fox to feed.

Then her friend Priya offers her a job on the side. Priya works at Our Lady of Mysterious Maladies, a very specialized hospital, where a new illness is resisting magical and medical remedies alike. The first patient was a teenage boy, Max Wu, and his healers are baffled. If Ropa can solve the case, she might earn as she learns - and impress her mentor, Sir Callander.

Her sleuthing will lead her to a lost fortune, an avenging spirit and a secret buried deep in Scotland's past. But how are they connected? Lives are at stake and Ropa is running out of time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Tendai's alternative Edinburgh becomes more real and more exciting with every book. An artful combination of magic, history and imagination wrapped up in an engaging story' - Ben Aaronovitch

'The Library of the Dead's alluring, shadowy Edinburgh with its hints of sophisticated academic magic will draw you in, but it's Ropa - a hard knocks ghostalker on her paranormal grind to pay the rent - who grabs hold. The moment you meet her, you'll follow wherever she goes' - Olivie Blake, author of The Atlas Six on The Library of the Dead

'An absolute delight... kept me totally hooked' - Genevieve Cogman on The Library of the Dead

'What a delight. Great pacing, wonderfully creepy villains, and so much fun!' - A. K. Larkwood on The Library of the Dead
