But Flora is late for school, so she takes the†unpredictable elevator anyway.†Huge mistake. Lost in her own house, she stumbles upon the long-banished butler--and†into a mind-blowing†muddle of intrigue and betrayal that changes her world forever. †††† Full of†wildly clever plot twists, this extraordinary first novel establishes Ysabeau Wilce as a†compelling new voice in teen fantasy. † This book features a teaser chapter from the second Flora book, Floraís Dare.
