Legend of magic and fantasy Robin Jarvis is back with his spellbinding sequel to The Power of Dark. Lil and Verne may think they have quelled the Dark forces that tried to destroy Whitby, but they have no idea that the powers they've been meddling with are about to turn on them. Despite Lil's crucial role in saving her home from destruction, she notices that the townsfolk have become wary of her - even fear her. More than ever she needs the support of best friend Verne and the witch Cherry Cerise, but they are preoccupied by their attempts to uncover more secrets of the golden Nimius. When Lil finds an antique box of watercolour paints she welcomes the diversion, little realising that every time she uses it something nasty escapes. But it is while they are distracted an old enemy finds a path to their door . . .

Author Biography

Robin Jarvis started writing in 1988 and quickly became a bestselling author with his Deptford Mice and Whitby Witches series. His mixture of magic and horror enthralled readers and he was one of those authors whose reputation grew like wildfire as a result of `playground buzz' in the late 80s/early 90s. Later works include Tales of the Wyrd Museum, a timeslip trilogy inspired by Norse mythology; Deathscent, science fiction with an alternate Tudor twist; and the Hagwood series, where morphing creatures fight to protect the forest that is their home. He is also author of the Dancing Jax trilogy, a dark fantasy for young adults in which humans fall under the power of an evil magician and his demonic book. Before becoming an author, Robin was a model-maker for TV and films, and always produces amazing creations to accompany his books. He has been shortlisted for the Carnegie and Smarties awards, and won the Lancashire Libraries book of the year. The Devil's Paintbox is the second title in a series of four books that takes readers on a new adventure set in Whitby. Robin lives and works in Greenwich, London.
