Product description

A spellbinding new novel from the Sunday Times-bestselling author of The Girl of Ink & Stars, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.


‘A story bursting with imagination, sparkle and tender heart … I adored it!’ JASBINDER BILAN

‘Both souful poetry and thrilling adventure; powerful and delicate, chilling and comforting’ SOPHIE ANDERSON

‘Ripping propulsive plot, gorgeous imagery, floating fairytale prose … absolutely loved it’ ROSS MONTGOMERY

In an Italian city ravaged by plague, Sofia’s mother carves beautiful mementoes from the bones of loved ones. But one day, she doesn’t return home. Did her work lead her into danger? Sofia and her little brother Ermin are sent to the convent orphanage but soon escape, led by an enigmatic new friend and their pet crow, Corvith.

Together they cross the city underground, following clues in bones up to the towers of Siena, where – circled by magpies – the children find the terrible truth …
