Product description

Amazon Review

Fern and Will, the children of a feckless art dealer find themselves sharing the remote farmhouse he has inherited with his current, and sinister, mistress. Something snuffles outside; a stone in the garden, which bears an odd resemblance to a passing tramp, moves in the night; a wolfish dog befriends them. Dreams and sleepwalking and the most remarkable video-tape ever watched provide the 16-year-old Fern with evidence that the world is not the controllable, rational place she thought it was, and that her own future is to be altogether more remarkable, and full of pain and wisdom, than she has expected ... Jan Siegel has taken the material of a hundred good children's fantasies and from it woven a book which hovers, like her heroine, on the brink of being fully adult, with the visionary power that often comes from inhabiting the threshold between states. Her handling of shop-worn questions like the paradoxes of time, the price of souls and the sinking of Atlantis, is as fresh and remarkable as fantasy ever gets; this impressive first novel is a classic in the making, and, it is to be hoped, the debut of a brilliant career. --Roz Kaveney

Review

‘Prospero’s Children is a piece of pure magic – a charming, eccentric, and powerfully imaginative work of fantasy which will enchant readers for years to come.’
Clive Barker

‘A lyrical, captivating first novel of mermaids, magic, lost worlds and found souls. Once read, this book will not be forgotten’
Terry Brooks
