A week after her mother found her sleeping on the ceiling, Amy Thomsett is delivered to her new school, Drearcliff Grange in Somerset. Although it looks like a regular boarding school, Amy learns that Drearcliff girls are special, the daughters of criminal masterminds, outlaw scientists and master magicians. Several of the pupils also have special gifts like Amy's, and when one of the girls in her dormitory is abducted by a mysterious group in black hoods, Amy forms a secret, superpowered society called the Moth Club to rescue their friend. They soon discover that the Hooded Conspiracy runs through the school, and it's up to the Moth Club to get to the heart of it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A marvel...Newman is a masterful wordsmith...intoxicating" - Ravenous Monster

"If you're looking for something to take your mind off the January blues, I'd recommend giving Kim Newman a run for your money." - Project Fandom

"Filled with entertaining characters and a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat." - Geek Hard

"Newman did an amazing job of crafting a world of super powers, and then showing readers that world through the eyes of a shy, and some what eccentric, young girl." - Atomic Moo

"By turns spooky, creepy, and humorous" - Count Gore

"Harry Potter meets Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, as told by Anne Radcliffe" - The Blood Shed

"We love spooky boarding school stories, and the new novel from Newman (the Anno Dracula series) delivers a doozy." - Barnes & Noble

"The school he has created may cause a few nightmares for sensitive readers, because some of the happenings are fascinatingly dark and twisted (there's something gorgeously macabre about these happenings)." - Rising Shadow

"For fans of Lovecraft, Harry Potter and the Ransom Riggs books, Drearcliff Grange is the girl's boarding school equivalent of combining Hogwarts with the Miskatonic University and then having Miss Peregrine teach the courses. I cannot express how sad I was when the book was over and I had to go back to regular life.' - Fangirl Nation

“Delightfully strange and excitingly unpredictable.”

An incredibly enjoyable story of daring adventures and arcane mysteries taking place in one of the strangest girls boarding schools ever depicted on page. Set in a creatively re-imagined 1930s England, Drearcliff is a... More

“Some refreshing changes for YA fantasy”

Having read Newman's Anno Dracula series, I had really high hopes for this but sadly he didn't quite manage to live up to them. I think his style of writing and use of mainstream influences didn't... More

“Sticky crumpets!”

Initially I was cautious with this because I didn't enjoy 'An English Ghost Story' however I am very glad that I put that caution to one side.
