Brenda and Effie are taking in the sights on the continent. Of course the sights happen to consist of an odd man obsessed with Opera and a hunchback giving them dire warnings. It wouldn't be a true holiday without something weird coming along and reminding them of their true calling as defenders of Whitby. Even if the hunchback is telling them to never return there. His insistence spurs them homeward where once again they will face their foes and keep the seaside city safe for another day. But ...more

After a brief stop in Paris, Effie and Brenda head back to Whitby, home of all things gothic. Would love to go there for the day and find out if Cod Almighty exists.
More madcap adventures with the bride of Frankenstein, a witch, the lizard man and the rest. There's also the limbosine, not the sort of car you want to take for a spin.

The sixth and final Brenda and Effie book! The closing of one of my absolute favourite series of books. All the way from a library book I discovered by chance because of Whitby Abbey on the cover, I’ve followed the adventures of Brenda, the Bride of Frankenstein retired to run a cosy B&B in Whitby on the Yorkshire coast, and her disparate band of friends and adventurers–Effie the descendant of witches, Robert the gay elf, Penny the goth and Gila the lizard boy–as they investigate the spooky ...more

This is the latest in a series about Brenda, who happens to be the Bride of Frankenstein, running a B&B in Whitby and, with her best friend, the witch Effrygia, protecting the world from creatures that are drawn to, or try to escape from, the hellmouth under Whitby Abbey. Really, don't start here - it makes so much more sense if you read from the beginning of the series, and I've managed to miss one or two before this book. He seems to have changed publisher, so the list at the front of the ...more

I've been saving this last book in Paul Magrs' 'Brenda and Effie' series for a while now, but decided it was time to finally finish what has been a very enjoyable series. The tale picks up some time after the end of Magrs' previous book in the series, seeing Brenda and her best friend Effie holidaying across the continent - meeting strange and curious creatures along the way. Eventually they end up back on home turf, among the dark and brooding streets of Whitby, and have to face what may be ...more

Brenda and Effie are living it up on the continent. Holidaying in Paris, they are menaced by a mysterious Peeping Tom with a limp and a hump, who warns them that they must never return home to Whitby again. Untold disaster will take over the world if they go anywhere near the North Yorkshire coast…

But Brenda and Effie know that they simply have to return to Whitby, even if it means the end of everything they hold dear.

Brenda owns a Guest House by the sea and her best friend Effie runs the junk s

Strong latest instalment for Whitby's favourite lady adventurers

This book is a warm hearted celebration of Brenda and Effie's stories. It's not a jumping on point for the series - if you're new to Brenda and Effie go back to the earlier books, preferably from the very beginning, to get the most out of them. This book is most effective when you are familiar with their past adventures.

There's a sense of doom hanging over the whole of this story, and I'm not going to give away the ending here. You'

Brenda and Effie are enjoying a European tour, but they can't get away from supernatural goings-on even in Paris. They return to Whitby with dire warnings ringing in their ears and Effie has a run-in with the infamous limbosine.

Effie's childhood comes back to haunt her culminating in a trip to Haworth for her and Brenda, where the Bronte sisters turn out to be not quite as nice as Brenda would hope.

This adventure sees Brenda in mortal danger (and beyond) and she needs her friends; Effie, Robert

Another fantastic instalment in the adventures of Brenda &Effie. Perhaps it's only because its so fresh in the mind, but it definitely feels like the best...and somehow...I doubt the last!

Just in case you are reading this and wondering if you should try a 'Brenda & Effie' adventure, make sure you read them in order. This should be read last...

A brilliant ending to a terrific series of books. Brenda and Effie and their gang of young friends have saved the world time after time but fate intervened and the end came. This book was filled with so many surprises from the appearance of Panda (from Magrs' Iris Wildthyme stories) to the demise of beloved characters. It's too bad the journey had to come to an end.

I just love the Brenda and Effie books and this book was no let down. Just like all the other books it is full laughs and gothic horror. I love the way that his books deal with friendship and I hope that this is not the last of the Brenda and Effie series.

Am gutted that the Brenda and Effie series is over, however the ending does leave it open for more adventures with our favourite Whitby twosome (please, Mr Magrs?)
