The Creature in the Case: An Old Kingdom Novella by Garth Nix

The Creature in the Case delves deeper into New York Times bestselling author Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom. Fans of Rae Carson, Kristin Cashore, Scott Westerfeld, and Cassandra Clare will be enthralled by this rich fantasy world.

Nicholas Sayre has just fought off the Destroyer and is eager to return to the Old Kingdom. The only thing standing in his way is a party organized by his powerful uncle. But when he arrives at the party he finds a house full of guests who don’t believe in magic or necromancy and a strange creature locked up in a display case.

After a disastrous twist of events involving the guest of honor, the creature in the case drinks Nicholas’s Charter-infused blood—and breaks free. Will Nicholas be able to stop the new Free Magic creature?
