For fans of Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness, this funny, suspenseful, and totally original fantasy comes to its brilliantly colorful conclusion.

Cello is in crisis. Princess Ko’s deception of her people has emerged and the Kingdom is outraged: the Jagged Edge Elite have taken control, placing the princess and two members of the Royal Youth Alliance under arrest and ordering their execution; the King’s attempts to negotiate their release have failed. Color storms are rampant, and nobody has heard the Cello wind blowing in months.

Meanwhile, Madeleine fears she’s about to lose the Kingdom of Cello forever. Plans are in place to bring the remaining royals home, and after that, all communication between Cello and the World will cease. That means she’ll also lose Elliot, now back in Cello and being held captive by a branch of hostiles. And there’s nothing he can do to help his friends unless he can escape the hostile compound.

Worlds apart and with time running out, Madeleine and Elliot find themselves on a collision course to save the kingdom they love, and maybe even save each other.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Remarkable.” Horn Book magazine (starred review)
“A grand finale to a grand adventure, complete with truly startling revelations…Colorful and madcap, a veritable ‘whirlshine’ of sparkle, with a side of tears: deeply satisfying, perfectly ended.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Listeners can confirm that using multiple narrators for the series was perfect and that these narrators are magical. Fiona Hardingham and Andrew Eiden are the heart and soul, with performances that are charming and genuine. Hardingham is the whimsical Madeleine, who longs for the Kingdom of Cello while worrying about her mother’s health. Eiden’s Elliott is heroic and honest while being held captive by the Hostiles. Kate Reinders deftly captures the marvelous spiky Keira, who shows no fear and expresses disdain for normalcy. Peter McGowan’s role is larger this time as he uses his rich voice to portray Isaac Newton, who attempts alchemy. This is a satisfying conclusion for an enchanted world that is colorful in a wholly original way. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“The magic continues to be refreshingly inventive and the world-building is so precise…Elliot and Madeleine are characters to cherish. The sweetly satisfying conclusion will leave fans with a smile.” School Library Journal
