Published by Andersen Press.

Partially it is the language and the descriptive power of this book that has me hooked. Along with the characters too – I have so far only read to page 34 – but this really is an extraordinary volume.

A tale of magic, slums, sewers, rats, old hags, and witches, both old and seemingly young…and a range of enticing characters…It’s gripping and won’t let me go. I want to read, instead of doing things I should be doing.

It is out at the beginning of February. This has calibre – I only review books before I have finished them, if I know, if I can sense that they will be good – this one will be. It is at the moment being compared to Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend. I’m afraid, I have to disagree.

It’s better.

I hope Jessica won’t mind my saying so. Similar, in a way, but better. I hope and trust this will be the start of a series, of perhaps three books – it’s marvellous. As with The Mask of Aribella (Anna Hoghton), I know this one is good – the first taste told me that…

Simply superb.

Once again – go into your local Waterstones and order a copy, or two. It is out on the 6th of February. With luck Ross will be kind and come and sign copies…. Order your copies NOW!

As to the cover, it is as above, though my pre-publication copy has silver highlights – which I’m afraid doesn’t come across in my copy-pasted image…
