Product description


What a delight! (Fiction Focus)

Beautifully written, completely absorbing ... Magical (The Book Magazine)

Brilliant descriptions, powerfully evoking the sounds and smells of London in the period and superbly drawn characters combine with a delicately constructed plot to make this book a real pleasure (Good Book Guide)

A beautifully written tale of suspense and intrigue (The Historical Novels Review)

Spellbinding (Haverhill Echo)

A very unusual, poetic tale (The Northern Echo)

An extraordinarily beautiful and gripping tale (The Times)

Enchanting (The Children's Bookseller)

Richly written, highly visual and full of accurate historical detail (Children's Education)

Gripping ... as vivd as Pepys' diary ... strikingly original ... a very special book indeed (School Librarian)

An original and enigmatic novel (The Spectator)

'completely engaging' (Jennifer Taylor THE BOOKSELLER)

'a beautifully written story. Sally Gardner has clearly researched the times and customs very well indeed for she had me transported back to that far off time. I would definitely recommend this book, told with such care and feeling.' (Muriel Barking NEW BOOKS)

'Beautifullly written, completely absorbing story... the author evokes the streets of London and the political upheavals of the day with compelling ease. (Christine Kidney THE BOOK MAGAZINE)

'will captivate readers with its riveting and detailed parallel storylines, its intriguingly drawn characters, and, above all, its engrossing first person narration' (Marla Arback YABOOKSCENTRAL.COM)

'the skillful writing sweeps through mid-seventeenth century London.' (SCHOOL LIBRARIAN)

'a thrilling story that mixes historic realism, credible characters and the dreamy, sometimes violent, dimension of a netherworld. The two blend seamlessly in this gripping and orginal story that abounds with gritty suspense. An excellent read.' (Mary Arrigan SUNDAY TRIBUNE)

'a book filled with enchantment and difference. You won't read many novels as beautifully written and as enthralling as this rich, spellibinding, new-off-the-black fairy tale.' (John Millen SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST)

Book Description

A glorious novel set in seventeenth-century London, and in the fairy world.
