Waterstones Says

One of the most original storytellers in Young Adult fiction returns with a brilliantly realised dystopia where climate disaster has transformed London into a lagoon and two rebellious youths fight back against the crippling conformity of the current regime.

Set in a broken, future England, where gunfights and monsters collide, this is the exciting first title in a phenomenal fantasy teen series by the bestselling children's novelist.

England has been radically changed by a series of catastrophes - large cities have disappeared and London has been replaced by a lagoon. The surviving population exists in fortified towns where they cling to traditional ways, while strangely evolved beasts prowl the wilderness beyond.

Conformity is rigidly enforced and those who fall foul of the rules are persecuted: some are killed, others are driven out into the wilds. Only a few fight back - and two of these outlaws, Scarlett McCain and Albert Browne, display an audacity and talent that makes them legends.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'You won't be able to put this down. A classic in the making.' - Eoin Colfer

'Perfectly paced, beautifully written and bursting with black humour and bold ideas.' - Philip Reeve

I've gone for the sheer entertainment and escapism of Jonathon Stroud's The Outlaws Scarlett & Browne, first in a series, and the perfect tonic to January lockdown. [...] Stroud's talent for creating astonishing yet utterly believable literary worlds is well known - and this is another triumph. This adventure - starring a pair of charismatic anti-heroes, intensely cinematic action laced with characteristically dry wit, and a mash-up genres - crammed with gun fights, monsters and shadowy government operatives. Pitched for younger teens, but I expect discerning readers of 10 and up to devour it.' - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

If you enjoy comedy, mixed with thrilling action, this is the book for you.' - Becky (Age 12), Books Up North

'Imaginative, original, taut and with multi-layered protagonists... A wild ride.' - Jo Cotterill

“Bank Heists, Zombies and the Wild Wild West”

This book was maybe the most fun I’ve had in a very very long time. I adored Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series, and this proved to be just as strange/terrifying/utterly gripping.
Only Stroud could make the... More
