Arkspire: Exclusive Edition - Arkspire (Paperback)Jamie Littler (author)
The author of former Children’s Book of the Month Frostheart leads the reader on a mesmerising adventure, as a big-hearted thief and her mysterious companion are plunged into in a world of magic, power and prestige.
Exclusive Edition with a stenciled design sprayed on the page edges - A Standard edition is available here
Arkspire is a city obsessed by magic. The five Arcanists - a group of all-powerful magicians - have protected the great city for as long as anyone can remember. Within the hustle and bustle of these cobbled streets lives Juniper Bell, a thief who'd do anything for her family - even her unbelievably annoying sister.
Then one night, something incredible happens. A mysterious stolen relic (nothing to do with Juni, ahem...) explodes, revealing a mysterious creature, Cinder - who appears to 'bond' with Juni. The only creatures like that are allegedly dangerous enemies of the Arcanists . . . and its not long before they turn their attention to Juni.
Soon Juni, Cinder and everyone she loves are pulled into an extraordinary world of magic, power and prestige - but also grave danger. It seems the world Juni thought she knew is nothing but a lie - and now only Juniper and Cinder can bring it down.

'Jamie Littler has created a masterful adventure, teeming with fabulous characters, eerie monsters and ancient mystery. Text and art both crackle with marvellous invention. If you like incredible cityscapes, break-neck thrills, sassy heroines and irritable shadow-demons (and hey, who DOESN'T love all that?), Arkspire is the book for you.' - Jonathan Stroud, author of Lockwood & Co.
