A stunningly imagined, action-packed fantasy adventure for fans of Nevermoor, Neverwhere and Mortal Engines, from bestselling and award-winning author Patrice Lawrence.

Step into a world where magic sparks beneath the surface ... Elemental spirits – the fiery Dragons, the airy Fumis, the watery Chads and the earthbound Magogs – have existed peacefully alongside humans for hundreds of years. Until today ... A sleeping sickness hangs heavy in the air and monsters stir in dark corners ... but who is to blame? Marisee and Robert are the Elemental Detectives chasing clues to avoid catastrophe, facing a riddling dragon, a tentacled plague monster from the deep and the ghosts of Hyde Park in their race-against-time mission to solve the mystery of the millennium.

'The Elemental Detectives is a rip roaring magical adventure ... Patrice Lawrence has done a marvellous job of building an imaginative and creative mythology which lurks just under the city streets.'
Catherine Johnson, author of Freedom

'A beautifully written book, bristling with magic, set in an ancient London filled with dragons, ghosts, water spirits, and a mysterious, creeping sleeping-sickness that must be fought by the brave young heroes. I loved it.'
Cressida Cowell, international bestselling author of How to Train Your Dragon series

'Wow – The Elemental Detectives is a cracking fantasy. Clever, inventive, and pacy, with wonderfully drawn characters and a breathless plot. I want to read more!'
