The much-anticipated sequel to Sorcery For Beginners is here!
"If you're looking for someone who's got the spell-books covered, you might want to turn to fiction: Matt Harry's Sorcery for Beginners books are a fun getaway for any age." ―BuzzFeed
Six weeks have passed since teenage sorcerers Trish, Owen, and Perry defeated a team of ruthless anti-magic mercenaries called the Euclideans. When they learn that the world’s cryptids (aka magical creatures) are disappearing, they’re partnered with brusque team leader Jacinda Greyeyes and their former nemesis Bryan Ferretti in a mission to travel all over North America, collecting famous cryptids like the jackalope, the chupacabra, and the altamaha-ha.
But after another team of teenage sorcerers suddenly vanishes, the spellcasters set out for Germany, Egypt, and the Seychelles to uncover why the Euclideans have been abducting and experimenting on magical creatures like the unicorn and the Sphinx. The secrets they uncover threaten to divide them and reveal a truth that will permanently upend the way the world sees sorcery.
“If Douglas Adams wrote a contemporary middle-grade fantasy series early in his career, it would be the Euphemia Whitmore books. As much as I loved Sorcery for Beginners (which was a lot!), I loved Cryptozoology for Beginners even more." —Stacie Williams, New England Indie Rep, Ingram Publisher Services
