Description

Kaile lives in Zombay, an astonishing city where goblins walk the streets and witches work their charms and curses. Kaile wants to be a musician and is delighted when a goblin gives her a flute carved out of bone. But the flute' s single, mournful song has a dangerous consequence: It separates Kaile and her shadow. Anyone without a shadow is considered dead, and despite Kaile' s protests that she' s alive and breathing, her family forces her to leave so she can' t haunt their home. Kaile and her shadow soon learn that the troublesome flute is tied to a terrifying ghoul made from the bones of those who drowned in the Zombay River. With the ghoul chasing her and the river threatening to flood, Kaile has an important role to play in keeping Zombay safe. Will Kaile and her shadow be able to learn the right tune in time? Set in the delightful and dangerous world of Goblin Secrets, Ghoulish Song is a gripping adventure laced with humor and mystery from National Book Award- winning author William Alexander.

Professional reviews

"In this companion book to GOBLIN SECRETS, author William Alexander narrates his heroine Kaile's venture away from the steampunk city of Zombay. When she plays a bone flute given to her by a goblin, a dizzying series of events is set in motion--separation from her own shadow, expulsion from her home, and a quest to find the original owner of the flute. Can Kalie save herself, her shadow, and the bridge that holds Zombay together and become a musician? Once again, Alexander's narration is full of varied speeds, drawn-out hesitancies, emphatic pronouncements, and light, breezy cadences--all underscoring Kaile's spunk, desires, and drive. Alexander sets a fast clip and creates distinctive supporting characters, especially Shade, Kaile's shadow. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
