When the Strega-Borgias return from holiday to find that their faithful family retainer, Latch, has collapsed from unknown causes, it is only the start of their problems. Signora Strega-Borgia is feeling very peaky in the mornings, Titus is trying to save the world and Pandora has an embarrassing crush on the new butler (to say nothing of the fact that a demon is trying to invade StregaSchloss). Only Ffup the dragon is truly happy, due to her forthcoming marriage to the Loch Ness Monster. A fantastically epic plot, culminating in Flora McLachlan making the ultimate sacrifice, which will have committed fans and newcomers turning the pages late into the night.
The deliciously outrageous plot mixes love, marriage, midges, acne and sulphur. Deep Trouble is as fast, witty and wildly inventive as the first three books
Debi Gliori twists numerous events into the main plot spinning a tale full of wit and humour with a dashing of wild imagination and ingenuity
Full of demons and wickedness but comic with it
Strange, kooky, funny and enthralling. If you haven't got into the Pure Dead series, it is highly recommended
