Meanwhile, Madeleine fears she's about to lose the Kingdom of Cello forever. Plans are in place to bring the remaining Royals home, and after that, all communication between Cello and the World will cease. That means she'll also lose Elliot, now back in Cello and being held captive by a branch of Hostiles. And there's nothing he can do to help his friends unless he can escape the Hostile compound.Worlds apart and with time running out, Madeleine and Elliot find themselves on a collision course to save the Kingdom they love, and maybe even save each other.

Read an Excerpt

From A Tangle of GoldDear Jupiter,If everything went to plan, you should be in Cello by now. If not, you will be mad at me and trust will be all blown to hell. Well, I won't keep talking. I just heard from Queen Lyra - your mother - she's going to the crackpoint, so that's good news. You'll get to see your mum again. She sounds a bit confused but hopefully that'll get sorted once she comes thru & her memory returns.I know you're scared, so I wanted to tell you this. A long time ago there was an alchemist called Paracelsus. He believed that the stars are made of the 'quintessence' and that inside everybody, there's a hidden star. So, there's a star hidden inside you. It's your quintessence. You're probably long gone and listen to me, still talking. M.PS It's the strangest thing to write to nobody. PPS Email me right away if you're still there.
