It's the beginning of the 20th century; the age of scientific progress. But for Venice the future looks bleak. A conference of scientists assembles to address the problems, among whose delegates are the parents of twelve-year-old Teodora. Within days of her arrival, she is subsumed into the secret life of Venice: a world in which salty-tongued mermaids run subversive printing presses, ghosts good and bad patrol the streets and librarians turn fluidly into cats. A battle against forces determined to destroy the city once and for all quickly ensues. Only Teo, the undrowned child who survived a tragic accident as a baby, can go 'between the linings' to subvert evil and restore order.

“Vividly drawn adventure”

The Venice created here is a wonderful riot of history and fantasy. A really unusual tale, I enjoyed every twist and turn. I loved the mermaids and their salty tales and the band of redemption motivated ghosts. As the... More

“Definitely a case of baddened magic...but one that EVERYONE should read... but not for the very faint-hearted!”
