The release coincides with Avi's exciting new companion to this book, MURDER AT MIDNIGHT. otherwise, the magician will pay with his life. Night after night, a ghost appears inside the royal castle of Pergamontio, terrifying the princess. Mangus's only hope is his faithful, street-smart servant boy, Fabrizio, who must solve the mystery from the ghost using logic and purpose -- at the same time as a bit of magic of his personal. Mangus the Magician doesn't think in ghosts, but that doesn't stop him from getting charged with finding this a single.
Fabrizio, meddlesome but loyal servant of Mangus the ex-magician, feels horribly guilty. Even though forbidden to perform so, he secretly continues to practice sleights of hand and metaphysics. Casting his tarot cards one stormy night, Fabrizio fears he has unleashed terrible powers that will determine his master's fate. The plot is soon thick as oatmeal, with threats of death or promises of reward behind each hidden corner. Sure enough, moments later, Mangus and Fabrizio are summoned to the court of the king, who expects Mangus to utilize his recently outlawed mystical ability to rid his daughter of a ghost that haunts her.
This thrilling tale of intrigue and mystery could be written by none other than Avi.
