Spectacularly dark contemporary fantasy aimed at teens and adults. I loved this book (and the sequel & I’m anxiously awaiting the concluding book of the trilogy, to be released January 2013). Robin Jarvis was a much loved author from my childhood and I was very excited to find he is writing again, and now for an older audience.
The characters are superbly believable young people who are all morally ambiguous- and Mr Jarvis is not at all afraid to kill them off to keep the story moving. Frankly I wonder if anyone will make it the end of the trilogy alive.
A great, great book & a trilogy which is shaping up very strongly. Enjoy!
