A shapeshifting sorcerer called Cuttlefish unleashes a terrifying wave of magical carnage across London. A strange family known as the River People move into Cassandra Drake's neighbourhood. Are the two events connected?
Spoiler alert: no. Reasons to buy this book:
✔ Good cover.
✔ Cheap. Seriously, the Kindle version only costs as much as about 3 mangoes. What would you rather have - 10 hours of gripping urban fantasy, or 30 minutes of biting into sweet, succulent mango flesh?
✔ OK, I shouldn't have used mango, objectively the best fruit, as a comparison. But buying this book doesn't stop you from buying mangoes, if that's what you insist on doing. Public praise for the advance readers' edition:
"I was barely even a few sentences in and I was already hooked! This is such an interesting book, I really hope it gets published so I can read more of it!" ★★★★★ - Lottie Carmichael
"This book is perfectly suitable for younger readers, but still enjoyable for older. The premise is new and intriguing, while the writing style is entertaining and fresh. I loved the heroine. She was relatable, strong, and yet imperfect. You untangle the very complicated plot-line alongside her. I also enjoyed the deeper ideas, the writer was expressing that tie-in with current events. Very thought-provoking." ★★★★★ - Carolyn Sachs
"This was a lot of fun to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the published version." ★★★★★ - Declan Tarstie
"Better value for money than three mangoes." ★★★ - Alex Bryant
