The circus lies behind Micah Grey in dust and ashes. He and the white clown, Drystan, take refuge with the once-great magician, Jasper Maske. When Maske agrees to teach them his trade, his embittered rival challenges them to a duel which could decide all of their fates. People also hunt both Micah and the person he was before the circus - the runaway daughter of a noble family. And Micah discovers there is magic and power in the world, far beyond the card tricks and illusions he's perfecting - A tale of phantom wings, a clockwork hand, and the delicate unfurling of new love, Shadowplay continues Micah Grey's extraordinary journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pantomime took me into a detailed and exotic world, peopled by characters I'd love to be friends with...and some I'd never want to cross paths with." - Robin Hobb, author of the Farseer Trilogy "Who hasn't dreamed off running off and joining the circus? Laura Lam's Micah does just that, discovering a world of clowns and acrobats, con men and tricksters, corruption and incompetent doctors, and maybe more about himself. I look forward to more from this author." - Brian Katcher, author of Almost Perfect and winner of the 2011 Stonewall Children's and Young Adult Literature Award "Micah is the most wonderful, complex, brave and contemporary teenage hero I've read, facing issues of identity and responsibility that will resound with any reader who has felt like an outsider. Pantomime is loving in it's detail but hints at so much scope to come, it feels like the set up for an epic sequel. I raced through this book, desperate to know what happens next. 'Look out behind you' Robin Hobb - " - Bryony Pearce, author of Angel's Fury. "Welcome to a world of shills and showmen, fading tech and circus freaks, where nothing and no-one is what it appears. An absorbing, accomplished debut." - Elspeth Cooper, author of the Wild Hunt series

“Can't recommend this enough!”

If you haven't read 'Pantomime' first then don't read another word of this and go buy that instead (trust me, it's excellent).

'Shadowplay' picks up from the moment... More
