'What all the best fiction should be; something rich and strange.' - Marcus Sedgwick
'A tale of adventure, a love story, an unveiling of quiet phantasmagoria and horrors and a coming of age story, this grips and enchants and you never want it to end. A seductive new voice.' - Maxim Jakobowski, Lovereading.co.uk
(OLD STREET PUBLISHING, MAY 2014)
