Mosca Mye and Eponymous Clent are in trouble again. Escaping disaster by the skin of their teeth, they find refuge in Toll, the strange gateway town where visitors may neither enter nor leave without paying a price. By day, the city is well-mannered and orderly; by night, it's the haunt of rogues and villains. Wherever there's a plot, there's sure to be treachery, and wherever there's treachery, there's sure to be trouble - and where there's trouble, Clent, Mosca and the web-footed apocalypse Saracen can't be far behind. But as past deeds catch up with them and old enemies appear, it looks as if this time there's no way out . . .

Review: Twilight Robbery (Fly By Night #2)

User Review  - Gwyneth Stewart - Goodreads

The American title of this book is Fly Trap. The further adventures of Mosca Mye, Eponymous Clent, and the goose Saracen live up to the promise of the first book, Fly by Night. This story of an orphan and her accidental adventures in the world is equal to or better than the Harry Potter series. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Frances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of FLY BY NIGHT, her first childrenís novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. This sequel is Francesís fourth novel.
