Deeplight by teen author Frances Hardinge

Author Frances Hardinge reads the opening chapter of her stunning new novel Deeplight. This author is an Edge of the World absolute fave and her latest novel doesn’t disappoint. If you are looking for page-turning fantasy then fiction this good shouldn’t be only available to teens.

The gods of the Myriad were as real as the coastlines and currents, and as merciless as the winds and whirlpools. Now the gods are dead, but their remains are stirring beneath the waves . . . On the streets of the Island of Lady’s Crave live 14-year-old urchins Hark and his best friend Jelt. They are scavengers: diving for relics of the gods, desperate for anything they can sell.

But there is something dangerous in the deep waters of the undersea, calling to someone brave enough to retrieve it. When the waves try to claim Jelt, Hark will do anything to save him. Even if it means compromising not just who Jelt is, but what he is . . .

The book is now available in paperback at £7.99 and we can take pre-orders for when we hopefully open on 1st June.
