Charlie Keeper has been forced from her home by a bloodthirsty and terrifying stranger.

But in escaping she discovers her house holds the gateway to the Realm of Bellania - a place of myth, magic . . . and an evil Lord with a very bad attitude.

Now its fate rests squarely upon Charlie's shoulders. But before she can untangle the mystery that will save Bellania, she needs the answer to a life-changing secret her guardian, the dastardly Mr Crow, has been keeping from her . . . Just who is Charlie Keeper?

  1. Boo that the contest isn't for those of us "across the pond," but I definitely plan on checking this book out. The artwork is both beautiful and absolutely chilling. And I'm always looking for new graphic novels to read!

  2. It's not exactly a graphic novel, I don't think. IT just has some illustrations. Sorry it's not an international contest!
