The Disappearing Duchess

The Disappearing Duchess

The first book in the Last Apprentice series.

Twelve-year-old Bianca feels like the luckiest girl in Venice. She's apprenticed to the most famous painter in the world – Annunzio di Lombardi – and she's learning all the tricks of the trade in the most glamorous place in the city: the Duchess's Palace. But one night disaster strikes. Bianca's beloved Lombardi collapses after drinking a poisoned cup of wine at a party – but not before giving Bianca a magical paintbrush, which allows her to travel through hidden doorways throughout the city. Bianca will have to use all of her pluck, courage and cunning to find out who tried to hurt her master – and to discover what is wrong with the Duchess, who is behaving very strangely indeed...

Imogen Rossi grew up in London but her favourite place in the world is Venice during the carnival. She spent most of her summer holidays in Italy where she passed the time doodling and writing stories. Imogen loves to paint and sings in a choir. She most enjoys stories involving mystery, magic and time travel. Imogen has a collection of Venetian carnival masks and two cats named Leonardo and Michelangelo (Lenny and Mike for short).
