The Secret of The Blood Red Key - David Farr

Step inside the pages of an immortal adventure...
Rachel and Robert have defeated the tyrant Malstain and become the heroes of Krasnia, but all is not how it should be. Robert is swept away with his new friends, leaving Rachel alone to take care of her ailing father, who's lost without their beloved mother.
From nowhere, a boy appears knowing the secrets of the hidden blood-red key. For the key is a way into the Hinterland - and Rachel must promise that, as a new key keeper, she will answer when it calls. When a young girl, Elsa Spiegel, is illegally smuggled into the Hinterland, Rachel has no choice but to use her key to save Elsa. But her fate is linked to Krasnia, and Rachel must battle to save her home as she knows it.

I'm thrilled to be a part of the blogtour for this sequel to the first book (The Book of Stolen Dreams) which I loved last year. this is another rip-roaring thrill-packed adventure with Rachel and Robert (a great pair of protagonists!) and another battle to save Krasnia.

It's obvious that Davis Farr is a master of his craft - the action sequences, drama, twists and turns show brilliant plotting and world-building, and keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the story.

Read for yourself in these extracts as part of the blogtour for this brilliant book, out now:
