11-year-old Connie comes to stay with her odd aunt Evelyn on the Cornish coast, and soon discovers that Evelyn belongs to an ancient secret society dedicated to the protection of mythical creatures such as sirens, unicorns, and dragons. And it turns out that Connie is a universal, able to communicate with all creatures through a special bond. Will she be able to take a stand against the evil and frightening Kullervo? Disappointing and a little boring after Golding's captivating Dragonfly. It just didn't feel very original, and was too long. I doubt juvenile readers will want to stick with Connie for over 350 pages.
