The Night Spinner (Dream Snatcher #3)
Moll Pecksniff and her friends are back for a new adventure as the thrilling series that began with The Dreamsnatcher concludes. In a ruined monastery in the northern wilderness, a Shadowmask called Wormhook sits in front of a spinning wheel. He is spinning a quilt of darkness known as the Veil. A masked figure then carries the Veil across the lands, slipping it through the windows of children's bedrooms to poison their minds...Meanwhile deep inside Tanglefern Forest, Moll and her wildcat, Gryff, are waiting for a sign from the Old Magic before they continue their quest. There are two Shadowmasks still out there and if Moll's world is ever to be free of their dark and terrible magic, she must find the last Amulet of Truth. Still reeling from the loss of fellow Tribe member, Alfie, and armed only with a mysterious set of clues, Moll sets out on an adventure across the northern wilderness with Gryff and her friend, Siddy, at her side. They must brave the Lost Isles and scale the Barbed Peaks but there are witches, goblins and giants lurking at every turn. And, all the while, the Shadowmasks are drawing closer to conjuring their eternal night and destroying everything Moll loves...Can Moll, Sid and Gryff find the friend they think they have lost? And do the Tribe have what it takes to defeat the Dark Magic once and for all? Perfect for fans of J.K Rowling, Piers Torday and Eva Ibbotson.
Abi Elphinstone grew up in Scotland where she spent most of her childhood building dens, hiding in tree houses and running wild across highland glens. After being coaxed out of her tree house, she studied English at Bristol University and then worked as a teacher in Africa, Berkshire and London. THE SHADOW KEEPER is her second book (THE DREAMSNATCHER was her first) and a third book will complete the Tribe's adventures in 2017. When she's not writing about Moll and Gryff, Abi volunteers for Beanstalk charity, teaches creative writing workshops in schools and travels the world looking for her next story. Her latest adventure involved living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia...
