Waterstones Says

With wry wit and boundless imagination, Grosvenor's satirical dystopia centres on a defiant academic bent on staging a rebellion against a meddling dictator.

Tyranny is in the air in the city of Finer Bay, and Professor Wendowleen Cripcot would like to be left alone, thank you very much. The memories of the last one hundred years are quite enough to be getting on with, if only these young upstarts from the government body, The Finery, would stop trying to control her every move.

With the eyes of a dictator upon her, there are not many places to hide... but Wendowleen has never been one to back down from a fight (just ask her pet wolf), and insurrection is brewing underground.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The elderly heroine and her wolf make a refreshing change in this whimsical, gently satirical fantasy debut about how easily a police state might evolve." - Lisa Tuttle, The Guardian; "With wry humour and vicious imagination, Grosvenor's debut compels us not to allow her nightmarish fantasy of a totalitarian police state to become reality." - Joe Bedford, Author of 'A Bad Decade for Good People', Parthian Books

“Never pick a fight with an old lady”

So I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of this.

The story is, despite the dark undertones and strong authoritarian themes, an entertaining read.

It strikes a fine balance between keeping elements of... More
