Overview

Jennifer, famosa in tutte le Terre di Drago per essere l'ultima ammazzadraghi, gestisce l'agenzia di maghi Kazam in assenza del suo fondatore, il grande Zambini, condannato da un incantesimo a comparire solo per pochi istanti in luoghi sempre diversi. Tra le bizze di stregoni egocentrici e le scocciature burocratiche, arriva un incontro inaspettato: una donna misteriosa si rivolge all'agenzia per ritrovare un anello perduto, pervaso di una devastante energia negativa. E proprio mentre Jennifer e il suo sgangherato seguito si cimentano nell'impresa, il Re in persona dà un annuncio: verrà operata una fusione tra le agenzie Kazam e iMagic, per creare un'unica proprietà alle sue dipendenze. Per impedire la fusione le due agenzie dovranno sfidarsi in una gara di magia! Ma mentre la Kazam già pregusta la vittoria grazie ai poteri dell'anello, il perfido avversario dell'iMagic medita di uccidere la famiglia reale e cattura una Quarkbestia, creatura nota per una singolare proprietà: riprodursi da sola, generando un'esplosione annientatrice! Riuscirà Jennifer a fermarla? Da un autore di culto, un fantasy vulcanico e geniale che reinterpreta l'epica del romanzo di genere con lievità e umorismo.

Jasper Fforde
Jasper Fforde
A former Hollywood film exec, Jasper Fforde has switched from the silver screen to the page, earning a reputation as a "grown up J. K. Rowling" with his literary fantasies The Eyre Affair and Lost in a Good Book.

Biography

Jasper Fforde is the author of four previous Thursday Next novels: The Eyre Affair, Lost in a Good Book, The Well of Lost Plots, and Something Rotten. He is also the author of the Nursery Crimes Series, featuring Big Over Easy and Fourth Bear. All of Jasper Fforde's books are available from Penguin. He lives in Wales.

Good To Know

Fforde's first novel, The Eyre Affair, received 76 rejection letters before it was published.

Fforde tells us in our interview that he got the idea for Pickwick, Thursday's pet dodo, from a visit to the Oxford Natural History Museum. "There was a stuffed dodo there and a withered foot and beak -- the only physical evidence aside from bones that they were ever alive at all," Fforde recalls. "I wandered for a bit and then asked the woman at the museum shop if I could buy a dodo home-cloning kit. She told me to come back in 20 years. That weekend, I wrote in Pickwick."

Fforde continued to reveal another fun fact: "The name of Thursday's husband, Landen Parke-Laine, comes from what happens if you are playing Monopoly and land on the first of the blue set -- a U.S. translation might be 'Landen Boarde-Walke.' Hence, his parents' names, mentioned in Lost in a Good Book, are 'Houson Parke-Laine' and 'Billden Parke-Laine.' "
