'Enthralling' M.R. Carey, bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts

'An imaginative tour de force' The Times

1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird. Some say they are the golden generation; some say the devil's spawn. But everyone knows they are something to be revered - and feared.

Four and a half centuries on, cast adrift from the rest of England by Elizabeth I and still bound by its ancient laws, Rotherweird's independence is subject to one disturbing condition: nobody, but nobody, studies the town or its history.

Then an Outsider arrives, a man of unparallelled wealth and power, enough to buy the whole of Rotherweird - deeply buried secrets and all . . .

Welcome to Rotherweird.

Great

This book was very enjoyable and imaginative. It was spoiled only by a lot of issues with layout of the text with random line breaks mid-sentence and where unusual fonts were used they rendered so small compared to the font unsed elsewhere that they were illegible without enlarging the text size.
It would be nice to see these problems fixed.
In spite of them I will be looking forward to the next instalment.

Wonderful

It’s a cliche I know, but I truly could not put this down. Engaging characters and a rollicking plot that never lets up. Write more. Write much more please.

Rotherweird is rather weird

The most intriguing book I've read in years. The whole story from start to finish has you questioning everything you've just read and even has you going back to make sure you read it right. Can't wait to read the next one.
