The magical sequel to the New York Times bestseller AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS, new for 2022!
B. B. Alston is an incredible talent, with a fresh and funny voice that perfectly combines fantasy adventure, magic, monsters and relationships full of heart.
After finding her brother and saving the entire supernatural world, Amari Peters is convinced her first full summer as a Junior Agent will be a breeze.
But between the fearsome new Head Minister’s strict anti-magician agenda, fierce Junior Agent rivalries, and her brother Quinton’s curse steadily worsening, Amari’s plate is full. So when the secretive League of Magicians offers her a chance to stand up for magiciankind as its new leader, she declines. She’s got enough to worry about!
But her refusal allows someone else to step forward, a magician with dangerous plans for the League. This challenge sparks the start of the Great Game, a competition to decide who will become the Night Brothers’ successor and determine the future of magiciankind.
The Great Game is both mysterious and deadly, but among the winner’s magical rewards is Quinton’s last hope . . . so how can Amari refuse?
The stunning sequel to AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS, which was a Sunday Times Bestseller, spent 30 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and has landed 27 book deals worldwide. AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS is soon to be a major motion picture with Universal Pictures, with Black-ish's Marsai Martin producing and starring as Amari, and Don Cheadle also producing.
'As a former black girl misfit who wanted nothing more in the world than to be magical, this book is a song to my soul. Amari is the heroine we all need.'
