Synopsis







Since the world fell sick with fantastical illnesses,

sisters Payton and Ani have grown up in the hospital of King Jude's.



Payton wants to be a methic like her father, working on a cure

for her mother's sleeping fever. Ani, however, thinks the

remedy for all illness might be found in the green wilderness beyond

the hospital walls.





When Ani stumbles upon an imprisoned boy who turns everything

he touches to gold, her world is turned upside-down. The girls find

themselves outside the hospital for the first time, a dark mystery

unravelling ...











The first teen novel from Angharad Walker, author of

critically-acclaimed The Ash House



Angharad's writing evokes the clever, unique world-building

and philosophical themes of Pullman's His

Dark Materials while remaining startlingly original





The story follows two sisters in a London-inspired city

full of fantastical illness and sprawling, gothic hospitals where

dark secrets linger beneath the surface







Praise for THE ASH HOUSE:





'An unexpected - and pleasing - combination of

propitious and disquieting.' KIRKUS REVIEWS







'Walker's immersive story slowly reveals its secrets,

using tension as a lever to tip the reader deep into the

Ash House's mysteries.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY







'The book has allegorical chill that settles slowly,

like damp seeping in . . . leaving readers with a feeling

of ambiguous unease that may stir for a long time in

the back of their minds like the after-effects of a nightmare.'

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
