Product description

Imagine a world scoured by chaotic storms that rearrange streets and turn children to glass. Take a walk through the crooked and eerie streets of an alternative London’s Old Quarter, prowled by unearthly beasts and a terrifying serial killer. Or explore the venomous world of Poison: a twisted fairytale land where evil looks just like beauty. Cinematic, dark and ingenious, Chris Wooding’s shiveringly tense Gothic masterpieces redefine the scope of horror writing.

Praise for Chris Wooding:

“One of the most intelligent, atmospheric and spine-tingling novels published for teenagers in recent years… breathtakingly brilliant.” Guardian

“Wooding’s explosive visual imagination knows no bounds… soaring from one richly inventive setting to another… Wooding has a macabre imagination of baroque proportions and it is a joy to see it at work.” The Times

“Gothic sci-fi with all the compelling paranoia of a fever-based fantasy.” Books for Keeps
