The Newbery Honor author of Ella Enchanted, Gail Carson Levine, weaves a thrilling tale of mystery in this companion to A Tale of Two Castles.
Elodie, the dragon detective Meenore, and the kindly ogre Count Jonty Um are all on their way to Elodie's home island of Lahnt. Elodie has barely set foot on land before she learns that the Replica, a statue that keeps her island's deadly volcano from erupting, has been stolen! If the Replica isn't found in three days, a mountain will be destroyed. And when Elodie ends up alone with a cast of characters, each of whom may be guilty, she has to use her wits to try to unravel a tangled web of lies.
New York Times best-selling author Gail Carson Levine has written an imaginative, fast-paced mystery that will be enjoyed by fans of A Tale of Two Castles as well as those meeting Elodie, Meenore, and Count Jonty Um for the first time.

Nearly as good as Tale of Two Castles
We enjoyed the puzzle and the atmosphere of the Owais
Elodie - She is clever and brave
Sarah Comes' voices are instantly recognisable and wonderfully characterful. She has more to do) than in Tale of Two Castles but adds a beautifully soft Irish accent for the new beings, the Brunkles, and scottish (both a gruff older man and young boy) as well as managing Elodie mansioning other characters.
