Product description


Catherine Fisher, author of the brilliant Incarceron and Sapphique books, embarks on an ambitious new series...a riveting read where nothing is quite what it seems (welovethisbook.com)

A genre buster...a great set-up for what promises to be a fantastic fantasy series (The Bookbag)

A riveting read that will leave you impatient for the next instalment (Peters Gazette)

A tale that effortlessly combines a number of narratives, voices, and modes of storytelling...moves at breakneck pace and constantly springs surprises (Books for Keeps)

[A] time travelling, historical, supernatural thriller, with replicants, fairies, crazed scientists, changelings, wolves, genies and Dickensian waifs...Don't ask, just enjoy. (Financial Times)

Time travel and the faery world collide in the first book in a stunning new sequence from the best-selling author (Western Mail (Cardiff))

Dark and scary with a fast moving narrative and imaginative characters...an intricate plot...a real page turner for teenagers (Carousel)

Clever, complex and sophisticated...Fisher not only interweaves strands of dystopian Science fiction with fairy tale, but expertly crafts a story of loss with the bittersweet and tantalising prospect of time travel fixing everything...The book is a tangled web and Fisher jumps from scene to scene with cliff hanger moments urging the reader to unlock her puzzle...With a movie of her acclaimed novel Incarceron soon to be released, Fisher is definitely an author to watch (School Librarian)

Fisher's universe is wholly envisaged...bleak, brittle and brilliant (Literary Review)

A new novel by catherine Fisher, poet and prize-winning novelist, is always a treat...The Obsidian
Mirror is both thriller and Science fiction and -- being written in Fisher's acid prose -- is equally satisfying to fans of both genres

(The Times)

Book Description

Time travel and the faery world collide in the first book in a stunning new sequence from the bestselling author of INCARCERON - for which film rights have been sold to the producer of THE GOLDEN COMPASS.
