The Trilogy Of Two


Formats & editions


A TIME Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015



The Trilogy of Two is full of inventiveness, with a world that’s constructed ingeniously and characters who are vivid and attractive.”—Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials

Identical twins Sonja and Charlotte are musical prodigies with extraordinary powers. Born on All-Hallows-Eve, the girls could play music before they could walk. They were found one night by Tatty, the Tattooed Lady of the circus, in a pail on her doorstep with only a note and a heart-shaped locket. They’ve been with Tatty ever since, roaming the Outskirts in the circus caravans, moving from place to place.

But lately, curious things have started to happen when they play their instruments. During one of their performances, the girls accidentally levitate their entire audience, drawing too much unwanted attention. Soon, ominous Enforcers come after them, and Charlotte and Sonja must embark on a perilous journey through enchanted lands in hopes of unlocking the secrets of their mysterious past.

Praise for The Trilogy Of Two

“Fans of Mieville’s Un Lun Dun will enjoy debut author Malouf’s intricate worlds, each teeming with its own customs and creatures, as well as her equally intricate pencil illustrations, which highlight the characters’ eccentricities … themes of sisterhood and believing in oneself will entrance readers”

Publishers Weekly

“An imaginative fantasy adventure with a unique arts focus”

Booklist

“Quirky… with hints of L. Frank Baum’s Oz and C.S. Lewis’s Narnia.”
