Signed Edition

Twelve men and women in a great big armoured truck are t such a huge risk, when all is said and done. They carry a great many hopes and dreams with them, but if they should chance to be lost, their loss can be borne.

They know very well that they are expendable.

Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.

The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.

To where the monsters lived.

In The Boy on the Bridge M. R. Carey returns to the world of The Girl with All the Gifts, whilst Melanie grows up in the prison of Hotel Echo, the rest of the world is on the brink of catastrophe and events are about to unfold that will change the course of history.

An early Waterstones favourite, The Girl With All the Gifts became a phenomenal word-of-mouth bestseller which is now a critically acclaimed film.

 “It’s a book that can be read completely independently of The Girl With All the Gifts; it has a new cast, it’s a freestanding story. But it picks up on what we already know about Melanie’s world, and I think it opens up a new and unexpected vista on that world.” – MR Carey

Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane - Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls

Best-known for his runaway success The Girl With all the Gifts, Liverpool-born author Mike Carey began his writing career in comics, producing work that includes the award-winning series Lucifer and X-Men: Legacy. He followed up the success of The Girl with all the Gifts with the dark thriller Fellside and The Boy on The Bridge.

“Boy on the Bridge”

If you loved 'The Girl with all the Gifts' as I did then you'll really enjoy this prequel. Not as immediately gripping as Gifts but excellent none the less, especially the epilogue, where everything...
