“I was everything a young person should be. Furious. Drunk. In love.” - Joseph Knox discusses Sirens
Posted on 12th Jan, 2017 by Sally Campbell & Peter Whitehead
Joseph Knox’s Sirens is an out-of-the-darkness, nocturnal descent into the hardened criminal landscape of Manchester. Away from the eyes of the press, an M.P.’s daughter has gone missing and disgraced detective Aidan Waits has been hand-picked as the ideal man for the job; what follows is a mesmeric journey into a dread-filled urban noir. Sirens is Joseph Knox’s first novel.
Few Young Adult series have caught the imagination like James Dashner’s The Maze Runner sequence. Kicking off with The Maze Runner itself in 2009, the shifting, lethal environment of the Maze and the plucky ingenuity of the novel’s hero Thomas swiftly found an audience hungry for more labyrinthine adventure. Four books have now followed including two prequels – 2012’s The Kill Order and now, the hotly-anticipated The Fever Code, the book that bridges prequel and series into one compelling whole. For Waterstones, James Dashner rather wonderfully found a moment to discuss The Fever Code and just what it is like to see your words made real on screen.
