The Shapeshifter’s Guide to Running Away
By (author) Lari Don
The curses are getting worse. The curse-breaking workshop hasn’t exactly turned out how Molly and her friends had hoped. And now something is going wrong with the way curses work. The team need to find the Promise Keeper who controls all curses, but the Keeper is guarded by Atacama the sphinx and his riddle. The five friends set off on a quest that takes them past the misty giant grey men of the mountains, to spar with an ancient snake and battling terrifying Nuckelavee. Can they discover what’s wrong with the Promise Keeper and stop the world of curses from spinning out of control? Magic, adventure and danger collide in the second dramatic book of this brilliant new fantasy adventure trilogy by award-winning author Lari Don.
