Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Starred Review"Glittering and gritty . . . Gorgeously written and brimming with bizarre urban creatures, this darkly imagined and sometimes painful tale should delight fans of Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and Holly Black." ―PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, (starred review)

Running away from her traitorous best friend and her distant father, teenage graffiti artist Beth Bradley is looking for a new home. What she finds is Filius, the ragged crown prince of London’s underworld―a place where glassy spiders steal voices on telephone wires, railwraiths terrorize the train tubes, and deadly scaffwolves stalk the shadows.

Reach, the malign god of demolition, is on a rampage, destroying the creatures of hidden London to lay claim to the skyscraper throne. Caught up in helping Filius raise an alleyway army to battle Reach, Beth soon forgets her old life. But when the enemy claims her best friend, Beth must choose between the acceptance she finds in the streets and the life she left behind.

Praise:

"Imaginative, innovative, and bursting with creativity, this is a wonderfully confident debut that will have even the most critical fantasy fans clamoring for more." ―FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

"Here is a new urban mythology that reminds me of all the magic I've wished I could find hidden behind the scrawling graffiti of my own city. It's gritty, dynamic, and beautiful―I can't wait for more." ―TESSA GRATTON, author of Blood Magic
