The Curse is changed. You’ll never know. The truth is lost. The lie will grow.

The year is 1726 and the Royal Sorcerer of England is on the hunt for those who are Magicborn. When Tempest is captured, she is taken to Kensington Palace alongside a boy like her, Thomas.

Trapped, Tempest and Thomas find their magic flickering to life and, with it, long-buried memories. For they are the lost prince and princess of Fairyland, bound by a deadly curse. But now the fairies are coming to get them, and with the truth revealed…can they both survive?

The first in a sumptuous and enthralling new historical-fantasy adventure series from the bestselling author of The Cogheart Adventures.

Publisher Review

This is glorious storytelling rich in magic, adventure, danger and intrigue. * The Bookseller * Enthralling storytelling. * Abi Elphinstone, author of Ever Dark * A magnificent tale of courage, faith and friendship. * Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy * A roller coaster of a story that left me breathless at the magical mayhem and characters...created. It's unlike anything I've read before. Superb! * Yaba Badoe, author of Lionheart Girl * Magicborn has everything I want in a story and more - magic, characters you root for with each breath and writing that sings from the page. Peter Bunzl has created such a vivid world. It sparkles with fairy-dust and originality - bravo! * Jasbinder Bilan, author of Asha & the Spirit Bird *
