From the author of The Black Book of Secrets, this is a story set in a Steampunk city of Deringolade. The city is ruled by superstition and card reading. An unlikely alliance between a pickpocket, an heiress, a hunter and a sailor is forged by coincidence – or was it the cards?
Some children may struggle with the sophisticated language in this book, but it would be great for 10-12yr olds not ready for teen reads.
