Overview

A TIME Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015

"The Trilogy of Two is full of inventiveness, with a world that's constructed ingeniously and characters who are vivid and attractive."--Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials

Identical twins Sonja and Charlotte are musical prodigies with extraordinary powers. Born on All-Hallows-Eve, the girls could play music before they could walk. They were found one night by Tatty, the Tattooed Lady of the circus, in a pail on her doorstep with only a note and a heart-shaped locket. They've been with Tatty ever since, roaming the Outskirts in the circus caravans, moving from place to place.

But lately, curious things have started to happen when they play their instruments. During one of their performances, the girls accidentally levitate their entire audience, drawing too much unwanted attention. Soon, ominous Enforcers come after them, and Charlotte and Sonja must embark on a perilous journey through enchanted lands in hopes of unlocking the secrets of their mysterious past.

All their lives, 12-year-old identical twins Sonja and Charlotte have called the circus their home. Raised by Tatty Tatters, the circuss tattooed woman, and helpful Uncle Tell, a fortune teller, the girls wow the crowds outside Rain City with their musical abilities. When Sonja and Charlottes family is threatened, their musical talents stolen, and their home destroyed, the two learn that they are the Daughters of the Key, prophesied to save the secret Seven Edens, a hidden and magical paradise, from Kats von Stralen and his mother, both eager to rule the Edens with a band of monstrous creatures. Together the girls journey across the Edens with Alexandria, an irritable Pearl Catcher, and a group of Changelings, all preparing for the battle ahead. Fans of Mievilles Un Lun Dun will enjoy debut author Maloufs intricate worlds, each teeming with its own customs and creatures, as well as her equally intricate pencil illustrations, which highlight the characters eccentricities. While characters and plot points tend to jumble, the overall themes of sisterhood and believing in oneself will entrance readers. Ages 10up. (Nov.)
