TRUE HONOUR IS ENDLESS. JOIN US. 1935. Norfolk. Its newest resident, Miss Delphine Venner, is determined to uncover the secrets of the Hall's elite society, which has taken in her gullible mother and unstable father. As she explores the house and discovers the secret network of hidden passages that thread through the estate, Delphine uncovers a world more dark and threatening than she ever imagined. With the help of head gamekeeper Mr Garforth, Delphine must learn the bloody lessons of war and find the soldier within herself in time to battle the deadly forces amassing in the woods . . . The Honours is a dark, glittering and dangerously unputdownable novel which invites you to enter a thrilling and fantastical world unlike any other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gorgeously gripping . . . the comparisons that most readily spring to mind are the wildly eccentric and benevolent imaginations of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett . . . in keeping with the best fantasy fiction. this novel is about a great deal more than creeping monsters and steampunk sensibilities * * GUARDIAN * *
Astutely brilliant. It is rare to find such a riveting, fantastical, adventure matched by such poetic flair. A rich, gripping delight -- MATT HAIG * * author of THE HUMANS * *
An astonishing imaginative feat -- NATHAN FILER * * author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL * *
Fabulously evocative, dark and fun: Buchan meets Edgar Wallace, H.P. Lovecraft and Enid Blyton -- HELEN MACDONALD * * author of H IS FOR HAWK * *
A mysterious, haunting story that builds to a thrilling climax. Part Mervyn Peake, part Aleister Crowley, it features a truly original heroine in the form of Delphine, the shotgun toting schoolgirl. Tim Clare writes with a poet's eye and a thriller writer's pace that held me spell bound till the last page -- CHRIS RIDDELL
A tour de force of breathless thrills . . . one which dares you to read it in one long sitting * * THE HERALD * *
Irresistible * * HUFFINGTON POST * *
A darkly compelling read * * FINANCIAL TIMES * *
A wonderful piece of storytelling, twisted in the best way. Delphine is a fantastic heroine -- ANNA FREEMAN * * author of THE FAIR FIGHT * *
Tim Clare's background in poetry sings from the pages of this dark fantasy novel . . . [Delphine is] an original, irresistible heroine * * INDEPENDENT * *
One of the most exciting fantasy novels of recent years * * THE LIST * *
I love this novel and I love Delphine. She is irresistible. If I were facing hordes of merciless skinwings she is the thirteen-year-old dead-eye I would want on my side -- JOE DUNTHORNE * * author of SUBMARINE * *
Riotously entertaining * * SUNDAY EXPRESS * *
A rich and poetic novel from one of the UK's most versatile writers * * GRAZIA * *
Thrilling and highly addictive, the novel creates a fantastical world unlike any other * * YOUR LIFESTYLE MONTHLY * *
Powerful in its imagery and dream-like in its tone * * SISTER SPOOKY [BLOG] * *
