Creatures, conjurers, and … cosplay?
Protect Sefu. On paper it looks simple.
Only I have no idea who Sefu is, much less how to find him or her. And my magic’s not talking.
But with demons on the hunt, and fiendish whispers of Sefu being some sort of ultimate weapon, failure could spell apocalypse.
One of those demons happens to be an enemy I cast into the Pits, a former vampire whose deadly mind drips vengeance. Worse, he knows about my relationship with Detective Vega and her son. Meaning I have much more than Sefu to protect.
In the Order’s absence, I’m forced to scrape together what help I can. Let’s just say that with the hunt for Sefu tracking through a major sci-fi and fantasy convention, my new teammates and I will blend right in.
That is until a shadowy conjurer threatens Epic Con and its thousands of costumed attendees.
A conjurer whose name might be Sefu…

It's about discovering your heart's true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible.
Written by Jasper Fforde
The new standalone novel from Number 1 bestselling author Jasper Fforde.
Every Winter, the human population hibernates.
During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness, and devoid of human activity.
Well, not quite.
Your name is Charlie Worthing and it's your first season with the Winter Consuls, the committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory safe passage of the sleeping masses.
You are investigating an outbreak of viral dreams which you dismiss as nonsense; nothing more than a quirky artefact borne of the sleeping mind.
When the dreams start to kill people, it's unsettling.
When you get the dreams too, it's weird.
When they start to come true, you begin to doubt your sanity.
But teasing truth from Winter is never easy: You have to avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping and stamp collecting, ensure you aren't eaten by Nightwalkers whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by comfort food, and sidestep the increasingly less-than-mythical WinterVolk.
But so long as you remember to wrap up warmly, you'll be fine.
