Publisher's Synopsis


'That most rare and precious thing: a brand-new classic, both wholly original and wonderfully nostalgic. It's an absolute treasure' Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Off the coast of Ireland sits a legendary island hidden by magic. A place of ruins and ancient trees, sea-salt air and fairy lore, Hy-Brasil is the only home Biddy has ever known. Washed up on its shore as a baby, Biddy lives a quiet life with her guardian, the mercurial magician Rowan. A life she finds increasingly stifling.

One night, Rowan fails to return from his mysterious travels. To find him, Biddy must venture into the outside world for the first time. But Rowan has powerful enemies-forces who have hoarded the world's magic and have set their sights on the magician's many secrets.

Biddy may be the key to stopping them. Yet the closer she gets to answers, the more she questions everything she's ever believed about Rowan, her past, and the nature of magic itself.

'A book to be absolutely devoured' Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong

'Draws you in and make you believe that magic does exist. I absolutely adored it!' Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter

'An enchantment of a novel. A coming-of-age story teeming with magic, with characters striving to change an unjust world . . . this is a book to be savoured' E. J. Beaton, author of The Councillor
