Product description


Pollock's imagined London is intense and absorbing, and The City's Son is an urban fantasy in the truest sense of the word, intent on imbuing every corner of the city with life, wonder and magic - The Guardian

An impeccably dark parable, endlessly inventive and utterly compelling - Mike Carey, author of The Girl with all the Gifts

Vivid, inventive - and truly weird - Daily Mail

Gorgeously written and brimming with bizarre urban creatures, this darkly imagined and sometimes painful tale should delight fans of Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and Holly Black - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Hugely inventive in his world-building . . . following in the tradition of authors like Neil Gaiman and China MiévilleSFX

Everything the genre should be . . . you need to read this book. It is intelligent, true to its genre, and the most fun thing I've read this fall - San Francisco Book Review

I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book as much as The City's Son. Fans of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere will definitely find things to love here; it's dark, it's gritty, it's touching, and it's deeply engrossing. I didn't want it to end - Stacia Kane, author of Unholy Ghosts

One of the most imaginative pieces of genre fiction I've ever read - Fantasy Faction

I was absolutely swept away . . . The writing is dynamic and vibrant, lyrical and bristling with intensity without being pretentious - Ann Aguirre, author of Enclave

From Charles Dickens to Iain Sinclair, Monica Ali to Philip Reeve, the city of London has been the central character in hundreds of great books. The City's Son, from Tom Pollock, is no exception - London Calling

Book Description

Beth's world is falling apart, until she discovers a hidden London, full of marvels, magic . . . and menace. Perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere.
