Something had happened on Hirta. End of the world or not, their people were not coming to fetch them off the Stac. They would come if they could, but they could not. No one was coming. No one would ever come… unless it was God’s angels and Judgement Day.

In the summer of 1727, a group of men and boys are put ashore on a remote sea stac to harvest birds for food. No one returns to collect them. Why? Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain why they have been abandoned to endure storms, starvation and terror.

How can they survive, housed in stone and imprisoned on every side by the ocean?

"Brilliant, beautiful... as unpredictable as the sea itself." - Philip Reeve, author of Mortal Engines
 
"Harshly beautiful, and stark with near-despair, this is an unsettling, deeply original historical novel." - The Guardian
 
"McCaughrean writes extraordinary books: emotionally thunderous stories that evoke place and atmosphere with uncommon vigour, and are expressed with exhilarating precision of language." - The Sunday Times

“A story as wild and beautiful as the landscape it describes”

I received a reading copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for a review and to be honest, it did take me a couple of chapters to get into the story.

“Bleak but beautiful, harsh but hopeful”

It took me a few pages to get into this, but it was well worth it once I did. Set in the remote isles of the Outer Hebrides hundreds of years ago and based on a true story, this is a really unique and cleverly crafted... More
