FIRST.NEWS/CRESSIDACOWELL SO FAR IN THE STORY…
Long ago, a war between spellcasters and evil creatures took place. For years, many of these evil creatures have been locked away… until shapeshifter Typhon helped his father, the Lord of the Beasts, to find the door to an ancient maze that could return these monsters to the world. The task of stopping these evil beings has fallen on young spellcaster Ferocity and her smoke-producing pet boggart, Guggalugs, who, after surviving a surprise attack from the shapeshifter, have tracked down the Lord of the Beasts with their spellcasting allies: the mysterious Trick, his sister Aida and his mum Ariella. The three had been fooled into believing that the shapeshifter was actually Trick’s grandfather – and very nearly lost their lives to him. Now they face Typhon, the Lord of the Beasts and an army of his subjects in a race to the centre of the strange, magical maze.
