Summary

There's a new girl at Rookwood School and a new mystery for Scarlet and Ivy to solve.

It's a brand-new term for Scarlet and Ivy, and the girls are intrigued by a fascinating new girl Ebony. She's as enchanting as she is mysterious, and she's begun to gather quite the following - in fact most of the younger girls appear to be under her spell.

But rumours swirl like ghosts around Ebony, and not all of them are nice. And when a prank on All Hallow's Eve goes horribly wrong, it's Ebony who gets the blame.

Ivy and Scarlet aren't so sure. There might be more to Ebony than meets the eye, but surely she's not dangerous? But if it's not Ebony, then who or what is to blame?

Gripping, thrilling and exciting!!!!😃

Incredibly gripping and exciting, Scarlet and Ivy, ‘the curse in the candlelight’ is a brilliant read for children aged 9+ but no younger for these children may find some parts in this wonderful book a little scary. I found myself listening to this book every day and dreading the end!!!😀😋🤩 All in all a thrilling, beautifully written adventure!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love it- thanks Audible!

As a Scarlet and Ivy reading fan, this is even better than I would usually expect. It is filled with fun, mysteries, and lots of excitement. I recommend for all- especially for ages 8-14 since younger children could be frightened by some violent parts! The very best!
