School For Villains

I looked again at at the door and saw a message scrawled roughly in the mud of the wall above it, as though someone had used their whole hand to gouge it out: RIDLEY GARNET'S SCHOLE FUR VILLAINS. Everyone's favourite orphan-turned-storyteller Daniel Dorey is back - and heads below Tumblewater on his quest to find his sister. He unwittingly enrols in a very strange school, encountering a host of weird and wonderful characters - including for example Dr Bludger, who attacks corpses with an axe to give his students the opportunity to practise stitching. Other lessons are forgery, lock-picking, knife-wielding and still-life painting (with a twist). Will Daniel and his naughty schoolmates be able to put their grisly lessons into practice and help rescue his sister?

I came to Tumblewater just an innocent orphan, and had to grow up fast. I became the storyteller of this place, sticking to the shadows, staying out of sight and seeing all manner of dark things. Follow me, don't make a sound and we both might escape with our lives. The very damp world of Tumblewater is home to some appallingly sick characters and goings-on, as newcome Daniel Dorey is quick to discover. Before he knows it, he is drawn into the town's vivid culture of storytelling, encountering a sinister tale at every twist and turn. But, Daniel comes to wonder, what is real and what is fiction?

Ever since a certain Christmas Eve many years ago, Ebenezer Scrooge has become known all over London as the happiest, kindest and most generous of all men, always ready with a smile and a cheerful remark for his fellow beings, especially at the most festive time of year. But this Christmas Eve there is a blasphemous threat abroad in the city: corpses are rising from their graves and attacking people, spreading a deadly disease. As he, Bob Cratchit and their companions fight their way through the fogbound streets, their footsteps silenced by the blood-spattered snow, he realises that if they are going to survive he will have to bury his nice and gentlemanly self, and learn how to be a black-hearted, mean-spirited scoundrel once more.
