An atmospheric and riveting fantasy adventure, perfect for fans of Frances Hardinge and Cornelia Funke.
Pip lives on his wits in the city of Clarel. When he pickpockets the wrong man, he finds himself in possession of a strange object - a heart in a silver casket. What's more, the heart seems to be trying to communicate with Pip, and the royal officials who lost it will stop at nothing to get it back.

Pip has unwittingly broken an ancient spell, and his theft will have far-reaching consequences for the whole city. As the ancient war between the Spectres and witches of Clarel reignites, the heart prepares to seek revenge for all it has suffered...

Alison Croggon conjures a rich, immersive world with brilliant and memorable characters in this captivating story of loyalty, courage and friendship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A lyrical, poetic writer and a compelling storyteller. * Garth Nix *
A dark, rich, complex setting and plot, just teeming with the kind of prickly, hardened, sly (yet somehow utterly sympathetic) characters more usual in a Dickens or Susanna Clarke novel than children's fantasy. Every unexpected twist and turn brought a new delight or a new terror that dragged me - grinning and fearful - through this excellent, excellent, story. -- Celine Kiernan
Featured in Angels & Urchins. * Angels & Urchins *

Whilst not for the fainthearted, adventurous readers will relish the intensity and jeopardy of Pip's exploits, which could act as a springboard to more adult fantasy fiction. * Booktrust *
