Fans of the popular “The Truth about Verity Sparks” will be pleased to know the long-awaited sequel is now available. The action has moved to Melbourne and Mount Macedon (one of the characters even ventures to the goldfields of Ballarat) and Verity again has several puzzles to solve. But the stakes have risen again: has Verity lost her power to find lost things?
The first part of the story is set in a boarding school (where Verity makes new enemies and gains new friends) whilst the second half of the story sees Verity with a new companion in the detective game…
The sequel may not be quite as unique and special as the first book about Verity Sparks, but it is still filled with plenty of adventure, action and mystery. Check out this book trailer:
