A thrilling story from the world of the acclaimed Beaumont and Beasley series.
Lady Cordelia Beaumont is dying. That’s what her mysterious nurse tells her, at least. Even worse, her magic powers have abandoned her, her friends are missing, and her whole world has completely changed. Everyone around her is insisting that magic and fairy tales aren’t real. Even the name of her city is different. She’s not in Talesend anymore – she’s in a place called London.
Cordelia is determined to return to her own reality, but dark forces are working against her. An old friend may be able to help, but he doesn’t remember who she is.
Who are the Neverwolves? What is the secret of the Shadow Parallel? And how can Cordelia use magic to escape from a world where magic doesn’t exist?
Please note: This novelette is set between the second and third books of the Beaumont and Beasley series but contains no spoilers for events beyond the end of the first book, The Beast of Talesend. It’s best enjoyed by people who have already read or listened to the first book.
