Hotel - Robin Stevens meets Harry Potter!

In solving the mystery of the Last Chance Hotel, Seth has discovered

Lighthouse, he is determined to prove himself. But when eccentric

owner Mina Mintencress is murdered, Seth realizes danger lurks around

every corner.

With the help of his cat, Nightshade,

Seth must put his new-found magic to the test. Can they unmask a

sinister sorcerer ... before it's too late?

prizewinner ... a jolly, atmospheric mystery.'THE TIMES

into a thoroughly comforting bedtime read.' THE TELEGRAPH


all kinds of fun: a locked-room murder mystery

paced breathlessly, but fruited with humour, poignancy and great

character names' THE OBSERVER

'[A] mash-up

of murder mystery and fantasy that celebrates food and cooking,

and is full of great characters, plot twists and intriguing detail.'


'Featuring magical antics, a talking

cat and a locked-room murder mystery, Seth's story reads like

an old-school whodunnit with added wizards and spells and echoes

of ancient sorcery.' BOOKTRUST
