In the tradition of truly fantastic storytelling, Verdigris Deep is a darkly witty, utterly creepy and clever novel by Frances Hardinge, author of The Lie Tree.

Verdigris n. a blue-green rust that tarnishes ageing and forgotten copper coins, altering them entirely . . .

One evening, Ryan and his friends steal some coins from a well. Soon after, strange things begin to happen. Peculiar marks burn on Ryan's knuckles and light bulbs mysteriously explode. Then the well witch appears, with her fountains for eyes and gargled demands. From now on the children must serve her – and the wishes rotting at the bottom of her well.

'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now' - Patrick Ness, author of A Monster Calls.

“4 stars”

I have a complicated relationship with Frances Hardinge's books. I usually love the synopsis and am so excited to read them and then end up not getting blown away and feeling a bit disappointed, and view them as... More

“As incredible as always”

I remember reading this a while ago, and it's consistently tied in my mind to the little stream near where I grew up that had a bridge crossing over it. Like all of Frances' books, it sparks the imagination... More
