Neversuch House is home to the very unusual Halibut family. Spanning generations, the Halibuts all live together totally isolated from the outside world, never needing - or wanting - to step outside the walls of Neversuch, with every whim being catered for by a mass of servants. But when twelve-year-old Omnia Halibut sees a hooded figure emerging from the woods by the Wall, she can't help but wonder who the man is and why he is skulking around the House. And as Omnia sets out to discover the truth she triggers a chain of events that threatens to destroy Neversuch House forever. For the House is steeped in secrets, secrets that some people want to remain hidden, and, as Omnia tries to unravel the mysteries of Neversuch House, someone is watching her, and they will do anything to stop her from revealing the truth. . .
All in Neversuch House is not well. The Evergones are trying once more to take control of the House and the treasure that lies within. With servant rebellions, freakish "accidents" befalling the UnderButlers' and the Captain and Butler being forced into hiding, the House is in chaos and someone needs to take control, before the Evergones finally succeed in their plot. Twelve-year-old Omnia Halibut finds herself again in the middle of the extraordinary events occurring in the House. Along with her ever faithful cousin, Evergrow, and her friend Basilica, it's up to her to uncover the truth about the Evergones and try to rally the Halibuts to her cause, or the consequences could prove deadly. . .
