The first book in Holly Webb's darkly magical series for readers aged 9 and up - join the 85,000 readers who have fallen in love with Rose's world!
The grand residence of the famous alchemist, Mr Fountain, is a world away from the dark orphanage Rose has left behind. For the house is positively overflowing with magic - she can feel it. And it's not long before Rose realises that maybe, just maybe, she has a little bit of magic in her, too . . .
But when orphans begin mysteriously disappearing, Rose knows there's something dark at work and her magic will be put to the test. Can she find the missing children before it's too late?
If you love Araminta Spook, Harry Potter and Lemony Snickett, the Rose books are perfect for you!
