What lurks behind the magic mirrors? How are they connected to the missing Sultan's Crown and what secrets does the mysterious Black Tower hold?

From an Edinburgh literally cloaked in tartan, through the forbidding Highland hills, Neil and Clara set out on a perilous journey of winged horses and snow witches -- and a reluctant broomstick.

Anne Forbes was born in Edinburgh and divides her time between Scotland and Kuwait. The Wings of Ruksh is her second novel.

Reviews

'For children who have read and enjoyed the Harry Potter series this is a fantastic title with which to continue their journey into the fantasy genre. Hopefully there are more adventures of the MacLeans and the MacArthurs to come.'
-- Hilary Tomney, The School Librarian

'A wonderful comic tale infused with the excitements and mysteries of the Scottish Highlands ... Ideal for pre-teens in search of a flight of fancy to carry them away from our ordinary world, and Forbes's writing weaves a story which will engage both boys and girls from start to finish.'
-- Mel Tibbs, Juno Magazine
