I am thrilled to be part of the blogtour for this - I loved it when I read an early copy last year - and thank Usborne for including me on the tour and sharing this video of author David talking about the book for whatiread.co.uk
The book had all the hallmarks of a great thriller for me: a malevolent baddie, a race against time, mystery and some magic, and the fact that it was based on a book?! Winner! It had feels of Northern lights for me, and I loved the sense of danger and menace that engaged me from the start and kept me gripped throughout. Brilliant stuff!
