Dragon’s Green by Scarlett Thomas

After the Worldquake, magic is seeping into our world

‘Some people think opening a book is a simple thing.  It’s not.
Most people don’t realise that you can get truly lost in a book.  You can.
Especially you.’

Effie Truelove is a new pupil at the Tusitala School for the Gifted, Troubled and Strange, with its twisted grey spires and an English teacher so frightening she gives the class nightmares.

When her beloved grandfather is brutally attacked, Effie promises to look after his magical books.  But then shady book-collector Leonard Levar gets his hands on them and Effie has to embark on the most dangerous adventure of her life…

Effie must travel to the mysterious Otherworld, unlock the hidden meaning of an old book called Dragon’s Green, and brave the terrifying Diberi, a secret organisation with plans that could destroy the entire universe.

But Effie can’t face the Diberi alone.  Can her new school friends Maximilian, Wolf, Lexy and Raven combine their gifts and discover their true powers in time?

Peer & Press Reviews

In this children’s debut from adult fantasy writer Thomas, a young girl inherits a magical library and discovers you can – quite literally – become lost in a book…  The first book in the Worldquake Sequence augurs well for what is to follow.

Sunday Post

An entrancing novel that stands on its prose… set in a dystopian future after a massive quake has annihilated modern technology…  She is far too inventive a writer ever to let us feel we’ve been here before

Daily Telegraph

Thomas deftly evokes an original, intriguing post-technological Earth looming with evil where “books are magic” and memorable misfits become heroes.  A compelling new fantasy series with an unlikely heroine, quirky helpers, dragons, portals, witches, and wizards.
