Overview

One of our finest storytellers,' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent This macabre YA adventure, with a touch of Lovecraftian steampunk, features underwater exploration, monsters of the deep, relic-based technology and questions of loyalty. The gods are dead. About fifty years ago they turned on one another and tore each other apart. Nobody knows why. In an alternative world, fifty years after the death of the gods, a fifteen-year-old boy, Hark, finds the still beating heart of a terrifying deity and uses it to try to save his best friend. Hark risks everything to keep the heart out of the hands of smugglers, military scientists and secret fanatical cults, to try to use it to sustain the life of his best friend, who is gradually and eerily transforming. But how long should someone stay loyal to a friend who is himself becoming a monster?

Reviews

Frances Hardinge has joined the company of writers whose books I will always seek out and read -- Garth Nix There is no mistaking the distinctive voice and vividly crafted prose of Frances Hardinge. She is a writer who delights in language, and whose stories fizz with ideas, allusions and eccentric detail * Metro * A novel by Hardinge is always an event * Sunday Times * Electrifyingly good -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman * Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now -- Patrick Ness


Author Information

Frances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of Fly By Night, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. Known for her beautiful use of language, she has since written many critically acclaimed novels, including A Skinful of Shadows, Verdigris Deep, Cuckoo Song, and the Costa Award-winning The Lie Tree.
