Set in a broken, future England, where gunfights and monsters collide, this is the exciting first title in a phenomenal fantasy teen series by the bestselling children's novelist.

England has been radically changed by a series of catastrophes - large cities have disappeared and London has been replaced by a lagoon. The surviving population exists in fortified towns where they cling to traditional ways, while strangely evolved beasts prowl the wilderness beyond.

Conformity is rigidly enforced and those who fall foul of the rules are persecuted: some are killed, others are driven out into the wilds. Only a few fight back - and two of these outlaws, Scarlett McCain and Albert Browne, display an audacity and talent that makes them legends.

'You won't be able to put this down. A classic in the making.'
- Eoin Colfer

'Thanks to Albert's quirky likeability, Scarlett's insouciant bad-assery and the evocative setting, you soon forget the cliches and simply enjoy the ride. [...] In short, this is bleedin' brilliant from start to finish. And did we mention the giant otters?'

'Stroud's writing is a treat; brilliantly crafted world building, taut action scenes, fabulous villains and witty dialogue. A wild ride indeed, and the first in a series.'
- The Observer (The New Review)

'The incomparable Jonathan Stroud fresh and startling. As ever with Stroud, the narrative tone is sophisticated and sardonic.'
- Financial Times
