Arkspire 2: The Order of Misfits

Arkspire 2: The Order of Misfits


Brought to you by Penguin.

Glorious, powerful, magic; a city of twists, turns and tricksters; extraordinary secrets which only one girl can uncover . . . welcome to the world of Arkspire.

Fresh from her glorious victory (kind of…) over the Shrouded, Juniper, Cinder and their newly formed Order of Misfits are riding high. Or at least they ought to be, but there's the small matter of Juni's sister, Elodie, seemingly trying to sabotage her at every turn. Oh, and the fact that Elodie is in mortal danger, and likely to have her soul snuffed out and her body snatched . . . not that Elodie believes Juni.

As if that wasn't enough to worry about, Juniper also has to face the next deadly Arcanist trial. But the Arcanists haven’t set these trials to prove her worth. They’re just looking for an excuse to kill her.

The Order of Misfits will need all of their best tricks to survive. Juniper’s not worried, though – she’s got a plan, as well as a magical otherworldly creature on her side, Cinder. But, as much as she hates to admit it . . . there's just something not quite right about Cinder, and his all-consuming desire to crush the Arcanists.

Juni's used to biting off more than she can chew - but has she gone too far this time?

A thrilling adventure and astonishingly illustrated new fantasy series, from the bestselling author of Frostheart.
