Coup de coeur (Children's), by Flora

In the first book in the exciting new Arkspire series we meet twins Juniper and Elodie, who live in the strange city of Arkspire. Ruled over by five mysterious magicians, one girl studies and dreams of inheriting magical gifts, while the other spends her days hunting down magical relics with her best friend, Thea. But when one relic summons a strange creature from another realm, Juniper and Co. realise they have a lot to learn about the mysterious history of their city and its magical origins.

'A triumph . . . The magic is mesmerising, the humour masterful and the adventure magnificent.' - A. F. Steadman, bestselling author of Skandar and the Unicorn Thief

'Full of fabulous characters, fantastic humour and breakneck thrills.' - Jonathan Stroud, bestselling author of Lockwood & Co.


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

Arkspire is a city obsessed by magic. The five Arcanists - a group of all-powerful magicians - have protected the great city for as long as anyone can remember. Within the hustle and bustle of these cobbled streets lives Juniper Bell, a thief who'd do anything for her family - even her unbelievably annoying sister, Elodie.

Then one night, something incredible happens. A mysterious stolen relic (nothing to do with Juni, ahem...) explodes, revealing a mysterious creature, Cinder - who appears to 'bond' with Juni. The only creatures like that are allegedly dangerous enemies of the Arcanists . . . and it's not long before they turn their attention to Juni.

Soon Juni, Cinder and everyone she loves are pulled into an extraordinary world of magic, power and prestige - but also grave danger. It seems the world Juni thought she knew is nothing but a lie - and now only Juniper and Cinder can bring it down.

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