Critic Reviews

“Spellbinding storytelling -- the inimitable Frances Hardinge has woven a wonderfully weird, richly imaginative and profoundly thought-provoking tale.”

Extraordinary. Exquisite and compelling. Sheer perfection. -- Liz Hyder, author of The Gifts
It’s gothic and twisty and witty and gripping: dark and delicious and fresh and I loved it. -- Katherine Rundell
This multilayered, humane and brilliant YA fantasy is the Costa-winning Hardinge’s best yet. -- Imogen Russell Williams The Guardian
A gloriously creepy, intricate masterpiece full of tangles and knots for the reader to get caught up in. -- Adrian Tchaikovsky
One of the most mesmerising journeys I’ve ever taken within the pages of a book. -- Hilary McKay
If you like your children’s books gothic, rich in language and occasionally baffling, you will already know Frances Hardinge. The author — who won the Costa prize in 2015 for The Lie Tree — is distinguished by a prose style that is often described as “beautiful” or “luminous” and her latest is no exception. -- Alex O'Connell The Times
This detailed, thoughtful, original read is not one to rush, but to savour. -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times
Hardinge is a worthy successor to Pullman, yes, but in fact, she is in a league that is entirely her own, a writer whose ideas are modern yet timeless, their execution compelling, eerie, sublime. -- Marianne Levy iNews
Themes of humanity and redemption play out against this intricately woven backdrop, illuminated by characteristically sublime prose. - YA Book of the Month The Observer
I would trust Frances Hardinge to lead me blindfolded into the wildest of marshes, and this is my favourite tale of hers yet. Instantly engrossing, effortlessly clever, and completely magical, with a stubbornly compassionate heart. -- Freya Marske
Beguiling and uncanny. Hardinge masterfully crafts modern folklore with the wisdom and wit of the ancients. I fell in love with this strange and satisfying novel! -- Tendai Huchu
Curses grow like wildflowers in this beautifully written fantasy SFX
Spellbinding storytelling — the inimitable Frances Hardinge has woven a wonderfully weird, richly imaginative and profoundly thought-provoking tale. -- Katherine Woodfine
Complex and clever . . . I was sucked into this magical epic. The Times
Hardinge’s work is always exquisite; this latest volume is no exception. Irish Times
Superior fantasy from a winner of the Costa Book of the Year prize. -- Suzi Feay The Financial Times

About the Author

Frances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of Fly By Night, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. Known for her beautiful use of language, she has since written many critically acclaimed novels, including A Skinful of Shadows, Verdigris Deep, Cuckoo Song, Deeplight and the Costa Award-winning The Lie Tree.
