Electricity often goes out and a new source of energy is required urgently... Do you think Lisa and Doon will find a way to get out of this city? What will happen in their escape?

“Duprau is a most engaging writer: direct, succinct,delivering lively characters and genuine suspense, sustaining the mystery but generous with her clues “ JAN MARK, TES

Personal opinion: this fantastic book is the funniest I’ve ever read but it is more boring than Harry Potter  or other fantastic books. It is the less fascinating fantastic book I’ve ever read. I like the situation and the context. I would recommend this book to readers who like the fantastic genre.

Level: it’s easy to read good for beginners in English.

Rating:  3/5
