And dark secrets will come to light, as the Society of Skeptical Enquirers' true history unfolds.

Our Lady of Mysterious Ailments

The Mystery at Dunvegan Castle

Praise For…

Praise for the Edinburgh Nights series:
“Alluring, shadowy Edinburgh with its hints of sophisticated academic magic will draw you in, but it’s Ropa - a hard knocks ghostalker on her paranormal grind to pay the rent - who grabs hold. The moment you meet her, you’ll follow wherever she goes.”—Olivie Blake, author of The Atlas Six

“An absolute delight . . . kept me totally hooked.”—Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library

“Expertly blending elements of Zimbabwean and Scottish culture, Huchu’s occult thriller is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Everything rides on the shoulders of young Ropa in this post-apocalyptic, near-future Edinburgh where magic, science, and monarchy all hold equal sway. Ropa, at only 14, carries an adult’s burdens and responsibility with equal parts can-do spirit, stubborn energy, and kicking herself and her friends as necessary. This twisted Edinburgh tries its best to keep her down, but she never stops.”—Library Journal, starred review

“Witty, suspenseful, and keenly attuned to real-life socioeconomic hierarchies, this equally entertaining and insightful sophomore outing should keep Huchu’s star on the rise.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review on The Mystery at Dunvegan Castle

“A fast-paced, future-set Edinburgh thriller. The Library of the Dead mixes magical mysteries with a streetwise style of writing . . . . Roll on the sequel.”—The Times (UK)

“Fast-moving and entertaining... Stupendously engaging.”—Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Rivers of London series

“What a delight. Great pacing, wonderfully creepy villains, and so much fun!”—A. K. Larkwood, author of The Unspoken Name

“I highly recommend The Library of the Dead.”—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse series

“Contemporary fantasy, at its best, is both escapist and urgent: this does both admirably.”—The Scotsman

"Ropa is a delight to read, even as her tumble into danger can turn into a bit of a nailbiter."—Booklist

“One of the strangest and most compelling fantasy worlds you’ll see all year . . . We can't wait for the next volume.”—SFX

"There’s magic and mystery in these pages, and with a protagonist like Ropa, you’ll be glad you went along for the ride."—BookRiot
