A breathtaking journey through the Floating Boroughs and the dark sewers of London, capital city of the Empire of Albion.

  • Perfect for readers of Philip Pullman, Diana Wynne Jones and Cornelia Funke.
  • The first book in a bold new trilogy, destined to be a future classic.

Our May 2021 Ages 11+ Book of the Month

My May Book of the Month for ages 11 and over is The Nightsilver Promise. Set in a futuristic fantastical world, where your destiny is laid out for you by a track of stars on your wrist. On her thirteenth birthday, our protagonist Paisley Fitzwilliam discovers her fate – that she is to die before her fourteenth. But then her mother goes missing, leaving her to care and protect for her brother. To save him, Paisley must uncover an ancient secret that will not only defy her fate, but will change the course of history forever… So begins a breath-taking adventure through re-imagined London’s floating boroughs, vaults and sewers, running from fire-breathing dragons, and fighting against time and fate.

This astonishing debut from Annaliese Avery is like no other. With rich world-building, a plucky main character in Paisley and one of a kind storytelling, prepare to be hooked to this new series. This epic fantasy is perfect for fans of His Dark Materials and Nevermoor, and recommended as the perfect follow on to fill the gap after reading Harry Potter. It has already received rave reviews from Vashti Hardy, the author of Brightstorm, and Dominique Valente, the author of Starfell. If the fate of The Nightsilver Promise was written in the stars, it would say it’s set to be a future classic.
