But there is only one Wychetts Key, and there are two Guardians...


A summer holiday becomes a nightmare for Bryony and Edwin when an argument about the Wychetts Key causes a freak surge of magical energy. The Key is lost, and the children are plunged into a sinister animal underworld.


On one side is the notorious Ratello Mob, the meanest rat gang ever; on the other is the Sisterhood, a brood of venomous spiders led by the twisted Widow Splicefinger.


At the mercy of the island’s criminal inhabitants, Bryony and Edwin must forge rival alliances in a quest to find the Key and control its power. But a far more terrible danger awaits them in the Pit...
