Neversuch House: Mask of the Evergones, by Elliot Skell
This is the sequel to Neversuch House: Flight of the black Condor and is is just as good.
Omnia Halibut, who lives in Neversuch House, is the Halibut of the decade who can do something. But her life is in danger as she and her cousin Evergrow are on the run from a mysterious person in a grey panther mask. First the Underbutlers die and Omnia is next on the list.
Soon Omnia begins to suspect her protector; Cornelius Slinker, and runs away from him whenever he comes close. The Captain and the Butler have been locked in The Hold for safety, a place that the Halibuts are convinced is a legend, but then the Halibuts get out of control, how can they behave normally when their Captain isn’t there? So is Cornelius really the killer? And if not who is really behind that mask? And what is the killer really after?
This is such a great book, it’s mysterious and quite a thrilling read. I love how the author captures the plot carefully and brilliantly with excellent twists and turns in the story, at the right time.
I recommend this book to children aged 11-15 who love a good mystery
My star rating out of 5 is 5
