‘A wonderful new fantasy’ - Jonathan Stroud, author of the Bartimaeus Sequence
‘With Brotherhood of Shades, Finch has proven herself to be an author to watch’ The British Fantasy Society
From the chaos of Dissolution rises a secret order, a Brotherhood formed to protect the world of the living from the world of the dead.
Growing up on the streets of London, Adam knows nothing of the dark and precarious world that exists just beyond his reality – until he dies, cold and alone, aged 14. Now, after years of abandonment, Adam discovers he is important: an Order that was formed many centuries ago to protect the world of the living from the world of the dead needs him – an Order of ghosts.
Adam finds himself thrown into the spectral world of Toby D’Scover, head of Section One of the Brotherhood of Shades, a mysterious character who believes Adam to be a foretold savior, The Sentinel. Together, Adam and the Brotherhood must battle unseen forces and deadly Elemental spirits to find a coded manuscript and save the world.
