14 April 2015
TIME TRAVEL MEETS SCARY FAIRIES ... with Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream thrown in, from 'the leading lady of British fantasy' (The Times) It's Midsummer Night, it's hot, and everyone in Wintercombe Abbey is dreaming strange and disturbing dreams. But what wakes Jake is the cold muzzle of a pistol pressed to his forehead. Who is the mysterious thief waiting for him beyond the Obsidian Mirror? And where will he find his father in the lost ages of the past?

In the third volume of the Chronoptika Quartet Jake and Sarah are swept into a nightmare world of revolution and murder, while Oberon Venn has to face the choice between staying mortal or losing his soul in the tangled green wildwood of the Shee.

With a masked ball, priceless emeralds, an enchanted monk and a desperate struggle at the very foot of the guillotine, Catherine Fisher continues her breathtaking series of sorcery and amazing worlds with this adventure of magic and the dangerous search for those who Time has snatched away.
