The second instalment of a thrilling new young adult fantasy series by Australian author Garth Nix, The Sinister Booksellers of Bath continues the story of The Left-handed Booksellers of London. Set in an alternate 1980s London, a few months after the events of the first book, become reintroduced to the wonderfully strange extended family of English booksellers and read along to generations of gods, wizards, and half-humans, all with a variety of powers. The story’s main characters feature a gender diversity that encourages personal expression and shows a fantastic connection of found family. Would recommend this series to younger, teen fantasy readers looking for an action-packed adventure!
