Page Numbers: 528 pages
Dates Read: 10/25/13-10/29/13
Plot in three lines or less: Marianne Pinhoe’s family tries to keep their magic a secret. They don’t want “The Big Man” (aka, Chrestomanci) interfering. The only problem is that Gran has gone a bit mad, and is sending awful rotten magic to the Farleigh family, and things are starting to get nasty. Meanwhile, up at the Castle, Cat acquires an egg that has strong “Don’t Notice” spells all over it. It is only a matter of time before Chrestomanci has to step in and straighten everything out.
