Kay's father is working late - as usual. Fed up, her mother bundles her daughters into the car and drives to her husband's Cambridge college to collect him herself. But when they arrive, the staff claim that nobody by his name has ever worked there . . .

Kay is puzzled by her mother's reaction - silent tears, not anger and confusion. And what is even more puzzling is the card on her pillow when they return home - Will O. de Wisp, Gent. F.H.S.P. and Phillip R. T. Gibbet, Gent. F.H.S.P. K.Bith. REMOVALS. That night, Kay is woken by voices at her window - the voices of Will and Phillip, the Removers. But they are not human. And Kay shouldn't be able to see them. Except she can . . .

Andrew Zurcher is Director of Studies in English at Queens' College, Cambridge, and a leading international expert on the works of Spenser, Sidney and Shakespeare. Twelve Nights is his debut novel.

A sinister literary debut combining action and fantasy. * Daily Express * If you love Philip Pullman or CS Lewis, you'll love this dream-like read as much as we did. * Top of the Pops Magazine * It's a great beginning. Kay's a lovely protagonist. The jeopardy is strong and Zurcher's use of language is beautiful. He's a lyricist of an author which makes this not insubstantial novel quite easy to read. * Starburst Magazine * Packed full of a story that is bursting off the page and begging to be made into a Harry Potter like movie. This is one amazing book. * ThirteenFourteen * For keen readers looking for new worlds to immerse themselves. * Book Trust * Fantastic journeys, courageous exploits and dastardly engrossing read. * Young Post * Takes the reader on an enthralling journey through the world of plotters and weavers, storytellers and imagination, in this sweeping, complex allegory about families and love * Reading Zone *
