Product description

Seriously creepy: do not turn the lights out. Spookier and more insidious than a sea mist on a freezing night. Sometimes, when a thing dies, its spirit goes looking for a place to hide. Some people have a space inside them, perfect for hiding. Makepeace is like that. No wonder she’s frightened; defending herself every night from the ghosts who try to possess her. Then, one black moment, Makepeace lets her guard down. Oops. Now there’s a ghost inside her, brutish and dark and wild. Then the English Civil War erupts. Now who wants to make peace? It’s time to make war. So Makepeace must choose: possession or death? Because now she needs the savage beast inside her… Contains mature themes

  • Haunting, powerful stuff from one of today’s top YA writers
  • A historical ghost story set during the English Civil War
  • Frances Hardinge won the Costa Award for The Lie Tree
  • Her debut Fly By Night won the Branford Boase Award

“Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now.” Patrick Ness

“Electrifyingly good… Even in a remarkable year for children’s books, it strikes gold.” New Statesman
