Product description

Review

Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now. (Patrick Ness)

'A Skinful of Shadows confirms Hardinge's status as one of our finest storytellers. The striking originality of its magical element is matched by a thrilling depiction of a 17th century England riven with political and religious unease. At the centre of the novel, young Makepeace is a vital and engaging presence amid a cast of extraordinary and villainous characters, and she had my heart from the first. It's rare to find a book which is every bit as intelligent and stylish as it is riveting - I was enthralled' (Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent)

Hardinge is a talent who deserves to be read by children and adults alike. (Guardian)

Hardinge's hypnotic prose and resourceful heroine will appeal to young adults and adult readers alike. (The Mail on Sunday)

Hardinge’s tale of ghosts, puritans and shaping your own destiny is an unmissable, hypnotic treat. (Observer Children’s Book of the Week)

Creepy, clever and mind-blowing. (Emerald Street)

Chillingly atmospheric, historically fascinating, it’s also blackly comic in parts and beautifully written. (Daily Mail)

Frances Hardinge’s latest novel, A Skinful of Shadows has a plot every bit as strange as her last, Costa-winning The Lie Tree. The thrilling story follows a 12-year-old girl who has imbibed the spirit of a bear, and is in danger from demonically possessed aristocrats. (Daily Telegraph (Books of the Year))

Electrifyingly good, A Skinful of Shadows dances between reason, compassion and the supernatural with exceptional artistry. Even in a remarkable year for children's books, it strikes gold. (New Statesman)

Book Description

A Skinful of Shadows is the stunning story of a young girl's quest to shape her own destiny from Frances Hardinge, the author of The Lie Tree, winner of the Costa Book Award 2015.
