Acclaimed author Scarlett Thomas discusses the creation of her richly imagined fantasy world of the Worldquake Sequence and meet Effie Truelove and the other fabulous characters who live in it.

Effie Truelove and her friends are on a magical journey from the Tusilita School for the Gifted and Strange into the Otherworld: a place of magic, danger and adventure. Discover your true kharakter, learn the rules of practising magic, and see if you’re brave enough to fight a dragon. Packed with mysterious worlds and secret powers, Scarlett Thomas’ Worldquake Sequence will remind you of the joyous power of reading and the adventures that await inside every book you pick up.
