When Joe is traveling to stay with his mother and stepfather for Christmas, little does he imagine the excitement and magical intrigue that awaits him when he falls headfirst into an evil plot to rid England of witches. With great bravery and more than a little help from his half sister, Esme, and a new friend, Twiggy, he has to muster all his courage and ingenuity to solve the riddles surrounding him and save his newfound friends.
A fabulously detailed and richly exciting adventure story that grips the listener in its magical clutches from the very beginning.
