The Luck Uglies (2014)
Reckless, curious and more than a little clumsy, Riley O’Chanter has grown up dashing through the streets and over the rooftops of Village Drowning with her friends. Life has never been particularly safe, but suddenly there is a mysterious howling in the night and a forbidden book that suggests another side to the history of the town she knows so well. What if the monstrous Bog Noblins aren’t really extinct? Why were the Luck Uglies, who used to fight them, really banished by the Earl Longchance? What is the meaning of the five rules her mother insists she abide by?
Filled with adventure, mystery, danger and suspense, this fantasy is the first in a trilogy and will leave readers excited to learn more about Riley and her friends.
