'The prize-winning Gardner is [a]dab hand at literary world-creation' Observer. 'Gardner's writing is atmospheric, almost cinematic, as the action moves through parallel realities. The story takes time to reveal itself, but it's absolutely worth it!' Children's Books Ireland. 'Rich and haunting historical fiction with a charismatic female lead' The Bookseller. 'Intriguing, haunting and filled with suspense, this story will transport readers right to the gutter of time and back again and is one to recommend to those who love an other-worldly read or who are looking for something a little bit different to get stuck into' Books for Topics. 'Gardner's first Middle Grade novel since the award-wining I, Coriander is sumptuous historical fiction; an elegant, complex novel that keeps readers guessing until the end' Editor's Choice review, The Bookseller.
