A Light in the Darkness, a Lock in the Door: Book 2

By Haiko Hörnig
Illustrated by Marius Pawlitza

When flooding threatens to destroy everything around the wizard's house, Henrietta must rally a group of unlikely allies to stop the deluge

Henrietta Achilles, the heir of a legendary wizard, has a serious plumbing problem. When flooding from the wizard's house threatens to destroy everything around it, Henrietta must rally a group of unlikely allies to stop the deluge. Alongside Captain Booner's soldiers and Nate Flemming's motley bandits, Henrietta travels into the house's depths, a journey that brings danger...and discovery. Soon Henrietta encounters one of her uncle's lost creations—and he's a little suspicious about Henrietta winding up in charge. Meanwhile, secrets from Flemming and Booner's shared past explode into view, and the house's volatile magic threatens to sink the rescue mission...

  • Lively artwork with amazing attention to detail
  • Fresh take on classic premise (a young hero enters into a new life, finds mystery and danger)
  • Strong character writing: Henrietta is likable and resourceful but not without vulnerability. Supporting characters are well developed and have stirring story arcs.
