The Mask of AribellaAribella lives in Venice, the daughter of an impoverished lace-maker. But she has a deadly secret: when angered, sparks shoot from her fingers. Unable to keep her power hidden, she flees – but when dark spectres rise from the lagoon, the fire in her hands saves her life.

A stranger witnesses the attack – and through him, Aribella leaves her old life behind and discovers the world of the Cannovacci, magical warriors sworn to defeat the strange spectres menacing the city …

A captivating middle-grade fantasy in the entrancing setting of historical Venice.
