Waterstones Says

In a desperate bid to evade her future as a Soul Severer, Deina embarks upon a deadly quest in the Underworld to retrieve Orpheus' dead wife Eurydice in this immersive reimagining of Greek myth.

Enter the Underworld in an epic new fantasy, where the Gods of ancient Greece rule everything but fate.

Deina is trapped. As one of the Soul Severers serving the god Hades on earth, her future is tied to the task of shepherding the dying on from the mortal world - unless she can earn or steal enough to buy her way out. Then the tyrant ruler Orpheus offers both fortune and freedom to whoever can retrieve his dead wife, Eurydice, from the Underworld.

Deina jumps at the chance. But to win, she must enter an uneasy alliance with a group of fellow Severers she neither likes nor trusts. So begins their perilous journey into the realm of Hades...

The prize of freedom is before her - but what will it take to reach it?

MEDIA REVIEWS

I was lost to this exquisitely crafted world. Daughter of Darkness is everything I want in a fantasy and more - Mary Watson, author of BLOOD TO POISON

Steeped in blood, betrayal and mysticism, this is a deliciously dark retelling of legendary proportions - a book of smart, savage beauty that kept me reading long into the night - Josh Winning, author of THE SHADOW GLASS

Rich with mythology, this twisty adventure spins a new story from old - one that will leave you breathless, broken and desperate for more - Bex Hogan, author of the ISLES OF STORM AND SORROW trilogy

A beautiful, breathtaking adventure through the world of Ancient Greece and the Greek myths. Daughter of Darkness puts a twisty, surprising spin on the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, with plenty of heartache and betrayal, and a trickster heroine who had me rooting for her from the very first line. Now . . . when can I read the next one?! - Holly Race, author of MIDNIGHT'S TWINS

Deliciously dark, dangerously exciting, absolutely immersive fantasy from two goddesses of storytelling - Sinéad O'Hart, author of THE EYE OF THE NORTH

Those looking for a dark read will not be disappointed, especially those interested in fantasy and mythology. A concentrated read in which reader interest and involvement never flag. - Elizabeth Finlayson, The School Librarian

“Addictive!”

The many Gods of ancient Greece always claim to be able to rule every aspect of a mortals fragile life, yet there is one such claim they cannot grasp, which is rather ironic seeing as they are meant to be all knowing:... More

“Brilliant start to a series”

I felt like it either needed to be longer or shorter.
Set in an alternative Greek history and based on the Orpheus myth. Our heroine is one of the theodesmioi, those that are marked by and can use some power of the... More
