Count Karlstein Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the mountains of Switzerland the wicked Count Karlstein plots to abandon his two orphaned nieces in a hunting lodge as prey for the Demon Huntsman and his ghostly hounds. This spooky and funny thriller is "dashing, sparkling, and wildly over the top"--("Publishers Weekly").

Synopsis:

It's All Souls' Eve, and Zamiel the Demon Huntsman has come to claim his prey! He's headed straight for Castle Karlstein, where the Count has hatched a wicked plan: he'll sacrifice his two young nieces to save his own life. Can Lucy and Charlotte outwit their evil uncle and his oily henchman, Herr Snivelwurst? Will some last-minute help from Hildi the maidservant, Sergeant Snitsch, and Doctor Cadaverezzi (and his Cabinet of Wonders) save the day — or send the girls straight to their doom? Only one thing is certain: the Demon Huntsman will not return to his dark wood unsatisfied!

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, a spooky and funny middle-grade thriller from the author of The Golden Compass.
