Synopsis

'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now.' Patrick Ness



Fly By Night is a breathtaking adventure story, set in reimagined eighteenth-century England, and is the stunning debut novel from Frances Hardinge, author of the Costa Award winning The Lie Tree.



As the realm struggles to maintain an uneasy peace after years of civil war and tyranny, a twelve-year-old orphan and her loyal companion, a grumpy goose, are about to become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution. Mosca Mye is on the run, heading for the city of Mandelion. There she finds herself living by her wits among cut-throat highwaymen, spies and smugglers. With peril at every turn, Mosca uncovers a dark plot to terrorize the people of Mandelion, and soon merry mayhem leads to murder . . .



Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge has an unforgettable cast of characters and an inspiring message at its heart - sometimes the power of words can change the world!



Fly By Night is followed by its thrilling sequel, Twilight Robbery.

Frances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time, a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of Fly By Night, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. Known for her beautiful use of language, she has since written many critically acclaimed novels including the sequel to Fly By Night, Twilight Robbery, and the Costa Award winning The Lie Tree.
